V. Klitschko: I Want Haye Bad, Even at Wembley Stadium!

By Luke Furman

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs) once again strongly emphasized his willingness to to fight David Haye (25-2, 23 KOs). Vitali faces Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9KOs) on February 18th in Hamburg, and then wants Haye in June 2012. Vitali's younger brother, Wladimir Klitschko, defeated Haye on points in July - a result that left a bad taste in the mouth of Vitali. The 40-year-old champion is even willing to give Haye the homecourt advantage by making the fight in Wembley Stadium. Vitali had no problem facing Polish superstar Tomasz Adamek in a brand new soccer stadium in Poland.

"I want this fight incredibly bad. After Haye's fight with my brother, I was happy and disappointed at the same time. Happy, because Vladimir won and we had all of the heavyweight belts in our collection. I was disappointed by the fact that [Wladimir] failed to punish him with a knockout. So I'm ready to make the maximum concessions in negotiations. Although Haye's demands are totally inadequate considering his situation," Vitali said.

"They are not only concerned with the money, but the distribution, the fight venue, the television rights, where his team is going to stay and even the boxing gloves. After all, Haye is no longer the world champion and I have the right to dictate the terms, not vice versa. But I repeat, I will make the maximum concessions, within reason of course. It is possible for us to fight at Wembley. In England, the Klitschko brothers have a lot of fans, so my support group at the stadium will be significant. I have no doubt that the stands will be filled to the brim. It seems to me that the most likely date is June 2012."

Klitschkos have no real fanbase over here. It's mainly pro Khan/Haye, Klitschko is no fan favourite. If either brother fought over here against a random fighter they wouldn't attract much attention.
