Booth: Haye vs Chagaev in May, Klitschko Fight is Dead

By Ruslan Chikov

David Haye's manager and trainer, Adam Booth, has revealed that negotiations have begun for a mandatory defense of the WBA heavyweight title against Ruslan Chagaev at the end of May. The fight will happen in England. IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his belts against Dereck Chisora on April 30 in Germany. If Klitschko and Haye are both victorious, a unification showdown on July 2 is possible.

Booth says the Klitschko fight is a dead issue. He already asked Chagaev's manager to supply the necessary medical records to ensure the boxer is healthy.

"The Klitschko situation is dead. I have asked Chagaev's manager to supply medical records," Booth told The Sun.

Where are the prime Holyfield and Tyson's? These guys fought everyone regardless of money, etc. I wanted David Haye to win way back when they originally signed because I thought it would bring new excitement to the division. Now, he…
