Team Klitschko: Vitali Eyes Haye Fight, No Wlad Rematch

Wladimir Klitschko's manager has ruled out a rematch between his fighter and David Haye but said a contest against brother Vitali Klitschko could happen. Haye failed in his bid to unify the heavyweight division after a unanimous points decision defeat by Wladimir on Saturday in Hamburg's Imtech Arena.

"There's no chance of a rematch," Bernd Boente told BBC Radio 5 live. "Wladimir will now move on. Vitali mentioned he would be interested in knocking Haye out."

Boente added: "The fight could happen later this year or at the beginning of next year."

Meanwhile, Boente stated that Wladimir was keen to fight the winner of the British and Commonwealth contest between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora in July at Wembley Arena.

"An interesting future opponent for him could be the winner of that fight," said the manager.

Vitali has thrown haye a lifeline. If Haye dont take it, it would be interesting to know why.

Vitali/Haye is probably still one of the biggest fights available at heavyweight... don't think Haye's power was upto much even against Wlad, so Vitali would probably walk through him.
