Vitali Klitschko: I Have One Goal, To Fight David Haye!

By Luke Furman

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40KOs) has a personal mission to complete before his career is over - to fight British superstar David Haye (25-2, 23KOs). Haye fought younger brother Wladimir Klitschko in July. He lost a twelve round unanimous decision and then retired in October. The British fighter is willing to return for a fight with Vitali, 40-years-old, who first returns on February 18th in Germany against Dereck Chisora.

Vitali wasn't satisfied with his brother's victory. He wants to accomplish what Wladimir couldn't - to knock Haye out.

"I'm not going to beat the record of the legendary former world champion George Foreman who even at 48-years-old continued to fight. It is likely, that I will finally hang up the gloves in a year or two. Right now I have one goal - to sign a contract to fight with David Haye," Vitali said.

[QUOTE=MASTERFUL;11607328]The compubox stats are always wrong, Wlad landed more power punches. Haye was afraid to engage with Wlad. He was scared of Wlad's power. He was in survival mode from start to finish. He was running like a scared girl…
