David Haye Explains Why He Won't Fight Vitali Klitschko

By Mark Vester

WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23KOs) has explained to Sky Sports on why he's not interested in fighting WBC champion Vitali Klitschko, and instead placed his full focus on fighting WBO/IBO/IBF champ Wladimir Klitschko. Haye made it clear at the start of his negotiations for a Klitschko fight, that he was only interested in facing Wladimir, and not Vitali.

Wladimir's infamous Youtube video has caught the attention of Haye. He admits the British boxing fans are always approaching him about that video, where Wladimir called him out to a fight.

"I've got the desire and the hunger for Wladimir. Vitali hasn't really done any videos about wanting to fight me. People don't come up to me and ask 'when are you going to fight Vitali.' They ask 'when are you going to fight Wladimir, I saw Wladimir on this TV show calling you out.' The Lennox Lewis fight was a long time ago. Wladimir I think is the more athletic of the two and he's the one who's been calling me out. If I fight Vitali, people will say 'you're ducking Wladimir.' He's younger and he's got all the belts, [people will say] 'why are you going after his older brother who's 40.' Wladimir is the one who I've got the beef with. He's the one that I want to fight," Haye said.

He can't beat his own meat. He is a ***** and a fraud. A BIG *****.

I didn't bother to read it because there is no excuse for him not to fight Vitali.
