Wladimir: I Got Arreola, Fury, Boystov, Chisora, Povetkin

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBO/WBC/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko says there is no reason to face David Haye for a second time. Last Saturday in Hamburg, Germany, Klitschko won a twelve round decision over Haye to unify their heavyweight titles. Speaking with Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated , Klitschko said there are plenty of options out there. He says Haye is not good enough to fight with the A-level heavyweights.

"There are a lot of guys out there for me to fight," Klitschko said. "Alexander Povetkin, Dereck Chisora, Denis Boytsov, Tyson Fury. I don't need David Haye now. You know, he doesn't know how to fight at this level. He doesn't understand it. I believe he was ready to give me a good fight. But he bailed out before the fight. All the talk, I think, got himself under his own skin. He's the type of fighter who fights great in the gym, but psychologically he couldn't handle it when it got real. There was too much public pressure on him."

Another fight Klitschko is tempted to make is a showdown with Chris Arreola in New York's Madison Square Garden.

"I checked with Emanuel [Steward], he thinks it's perfect too. Arreola has more experience, he has lost some weight. I hope we can do it in New York. I want to fight in front of that audience. When I fought [Sultan] Ibragimov and [Calvin] Brock, a lot of people came. I hope they would come out again," Wladimir said.

Chisora and Fury just suck Povetkin and Arreola are good but we're already very familiar with what they have to offer Boystov is the wildcard in that list, very young, could take the risks the others won't
