Haye to fight Klitschko?
29 November 2011, 09:10
London - Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye confirmed on Monday he is in talks about organising a fight with Vitali Klitschko in March.
The British boxer officially retired in October but was known to be ready to fight again if the opportunity arose for him to avenge his July defeat by Wladimir Klitschko or take on his elder brother.
"I haven't seen a contract but there's definitely talks going on," Haye told the BBC's Hardtalk programme.
"I said before I retired I would love that fight and there's a date in March that's already been talked about."
The Ukrainian brothers had claimed talks had been ongoing over a meeting with Vitali, the WBC champion, following Haye's unification loss to IBF/WBO champion Wladimir in Hamburg earlier this year.
Haye himself had already stated he had merely "retired from fighting anyone without the Klitschko surname".
A date in early March in Dusseldorf, Germany has long been talked about.
