According to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41 KOs), former two-division champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KOs) missed the lucrative opportunity to face him. Klitschko primarily wanted to face Haye on September 10th in Moscow, Russia, but both sides were unable to finalize the deal. Eventually Vitali fought Manuel Charr (23-1, 13 KOs), whom he beat by technical knockout in the fourth round. Yesterday Klitschko advised Haye to understand that he’s no longer interested in such a bout.
"David Haye had an opportunity to face me on September 10th in Moscow. All of the necessary documents were sent to him, he just needed to sign the contract. Unfortunately, David refused. It means that his train drove away," Klitschko said to the Russian media.
The future of the 41-year old fighter from Ukraine is still unknown. The elder Klitschko brother, who is also heavily involved in politics, has not decided if he wants to continue his career or retire. According to sources with sufficient knowledge of information, Klitschko should make a final decision in the next few weeks.
