Vitali Klitschko: Haye is an Itch That I Have To Scratch

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

VITALI KLITSCHKO last night dismissed David Haye as “an itch that has to be removed”.

WBC world heavyweight champion Klitschko is in advanced negotiations with former WBA champ Haye over a possible fight in June.

Vitali’s younger brother Wladimir defeated Haye on points last July – a ­result that left a bad taste in the mouth of Vitali.

He was angry at the way Haye repeatedly bad-mouthed Wladimir and has vowed to make him pay for it.

The 40-year-old champion is so angry that he is even willing to give Haye home advantage by taking the fight to Wembley Stadium.

Vitali is due to make the latest defence of his title against Britain’s Dereck Chisora in Munich on February 18.

But he is already looking ahead to the chance to finally silence Haye, who is ready to come out of a short-lived retirement for the world title fight.

“David Haye is like an itch I can’t scratch,” he said. “It’s unfinished business and it is itching all the time.

“It itches whenever I listen to David Haye. I always remember his bad words – what he said about me and my brother.

“I want to give him an answer – not with words but with my fists. I can’t forgive him for the things he did.”

Haye repeatedly indulged in trash-talk ahead of his fight with Wladimir and famously wore a T-shirt depicting the brothers being decapitated.

“He touched me personally,” said Vitali. “It is not about boxing. I remember all of his bad words. I want to give him a war with my fists, not words. It’s now personal.

“I don’t care about his reputation. I want to send him to the floor. It is my goal. David Haye doesn’t have any excuses.”

That was a reference to Haye blaming a broken toe for his points defeat to Wladimir.

Ukrainian Vitali said: “I want to send him to the floor and then he has no excuses – toe or whatever.

“I was very happy when my brother defeated him, but unhappy as he then retired and I thought that my chance had gone.

“But now there is a chance, although we are still miles away from an agreement.”

VK should just forget about this retired proven fraud.

How many opponents would Vitali have to fight to earn what he could earn in a megafight with Haye? Not hard to see his motivation here.
