Lennox Lewis: Haye Deserves Vitali Klitschko Shot

By Ruslan Chikov

Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis supports David Haye's plea for a fight with WBC champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41KOs).

Lewis ended his career in 2003 with a memorable sixth round TKO over Vitali.

Haye (26-2, 24KOs) lost a twelve round decision to younger brother Wladimir last July in Hamburg. He returned on July 14 in London to stop British rival Dereck Chisora in five rounds. Chisora went the distance with Vitali in February.

"Today, the Klitschko brothers dominate because they have no worthy opponents. Chisora slapped Vitali. How can you do that to the champion? If I was there, I would have hit him, but Vitali is too honorable for that. It would be good to see a fight between Haye and Klitschko. I do not [put my stock] in the ratings. Haye should be a contender to Klitschko, because he knocked Chisora out," Lewis said.

[QUOTE=yoz;12615676] He doesn't deserve a shot, but he might as well be given one.[/QUOTE] :fing02: Agreed. The HW is so poor, Haye is probably Vitali's best challenge. SMFH. But Haye doesnt deserve it. I hope Vitali makes Haye pay for…

[QUOTE=PD21;12618297]You are confusing brothers. What relevance does Lewis' performance vs Vitali have with Wvlads performance against Sanders. They are 4 different fighters. If we are comparing Lewis & Sanders respective displays against Vitali which was what was being discussed then…

[QUOTE=KingKhan1;12616394] As for Lennox, i think Wlad is the better all round boxer, hes more mobile, just as good a jab and better diversity in his punches. Lennox is rightfully a hall of famer but Wlad beats him.[/QUOTE] What version…
