Klitschko vs. Haye a Possibility For March 2013 Clash?

By Phil D. Jay

Bernd Boente, manager of the Klitschko brothers, believes that WBC champion Vitali will defend his belt in England next year against two-weight world title holder and arch-rival David Haye.

Haye, 31, was offered the chance to fight 41 year-old Klitschko this coming September, but turned down the fight and duly dispatched former Vitali opponent Dereck Chisora seven rounds quicker than the Ukrainian.

Boente says the fight could now happen in March 2013 and would be willing to give Haye home advantage for any potential contest.

"Vitali meets Manuel Charr in September and then goes on the political campaign trail at the Ukraine elections, which are held in October," Boente stated.

"He has to win his fight and then see the outcome of the elections. Then Vitali must decide what to do if he is not elected into a certain position.

"There is still a chance the fight will come, but not this year. It will probably be in England on pay-per-view next year, possibly in March.

“I will not exclude anything. I have learnt from past dealings that you can't rely on anything he says or does.
"He is like a fish in water - you can't catch him.

"It's all in Haye's hands. Whatever he wants, he just needs to approach us."

The ‘Hayemaker’ went twelve rounds with younger brother Wladimir a year ago and cited a broken toe for his lacklustre performance. A win against Vitali next year though could set up a rematch with the Londoner and many people see this as Haye's best chance to defeat a Klitschko as ‘Dr. Ironfist’ advances in years.

Vitali actually destroyed a very good fighter in Adamek before the Chisora fight and made it look easy. He soundly beat a pressure fighter in Chisora w/o the use of his jab, which is pretty impressive as well. So this…

Haye will want something unreasonable like a 50/50 split. Haye has ducked the Klitschko's many times, faking an injury in 2009. Making a whole bunch of excuses, fighting Valuev instead, fight Chisora.

[QUOTE=Fix;12375784]Yeah, Vitali was injured against Chisora, like Haye was injured against Wlad. So if Haye wasn't injured he might have KO'd Wlad, as planned. But the injury affected his performance, just like Vitali's injury did..[/QUOTE] The problem with your little…

[QUOTE=Fix;12375957]My point is that if you accept Vitali's excuse that his performance was effected against Chisora because of an injury, then by the same token you have to accept Haye's injury excuse against Wlad. Personally I think both were just…
