Vitali: Haye Needs Some Wins For a Fight To Happen
By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg
WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko doesn't sound like he's going to face David Haye unless the British boxer manages to rebuild himself with an interim-victory or two. Vitali believes there could be problems drawing interest in a possible fight - because of Haye's recent one-sided decision loss to younger brother Wladimir Klitschko last Saturday in Hamburg, Germany. Vitali defends his title against Tomasz Adamek on September 10 in Poland.
Haye would like a second meeting with Wladimir, who doesn't have any interest in a rematch. Vitali is interested in facing Haye, but only if the British boxer looks good in a fight or two before a potential meeting. However, a fight with Vitali will go up in smoke if Haye follows through with his plan to retire in the month of October.
"If [Haye] can get the right kind of wins and the fight makes [financial] sense then it could happen," said Vitali.
