By Chris LaBate

Former champion David Haye (25-2, 23KOs) is one of the names being considered as a future opponent for Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15KOs), who hold's the WBA's "regular" heavyweight title. Haye has been inactive since the July decision loss to WBO/WBA/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko.

The British fighter promised to retire in October, but prior to Povetkin's title winning effort over Ruslan Chagaev, Haye's comments appeared on where he pledged his support to Povetkin.  

Povetkin returns on the tentative date of December 17. A few names, like Evander Holyfield and Alexander Dimitrenko, have been mentioned as possible opponents. During a recent press conference in Moscow, Povetkin's manager Vladimir Hryunov was quoted by BoxingScene's Alexey Sukachev - stating that a fight with Haye will also be considered.

Hryunov: “Haye will surely be considered, as he is ranked #2 by the World Boxing Association."

[QUOTE=Pullcounter]why anyone wants to watch haye fight again is beyond me[/QUOTE] Haye is usually pretty interesting so long as he's not afraid of getting knocked out cold. he also tends to get hit. So I like his fights. Good power, shaky chin, good chance of getting hit. What's not to like?

[QUOTE=edgarg]You are, serously, joking. Haye not care about the WBA belt???? That pathetic narcissist practically slept with it when he had it before.

[QUOTE=Mr. Roach]Would be a great fight. IMO, Haye shouldn't retire yet, he's got 3-4 more good years left in him I'm sure. I'd pick Haye by mid-late TKO.[/QUOTE] This would be a very good fight. I'd like to see Haye vs. Povetkin, Chagaev and Eddie Chambers. those would all be great fight...

[QUOTE=!!Captain]So, let me get this straight. Haye knocks Povetkin out within 3-6 rounds, then meets with Wlad again, and Wlad beats him over 12 rounds again. Then Wlad becomes what, a Super-duper champion? Just when you thought that ABCs couldn't get more pathetic.[/QUOTE] I'm guessi...
