Recommended Posts

WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (52-3, 46 KOs) will next fight against former WBC/WBA/WBO cruiserweight champion David Haye (22-1, 22 KOs). Representatives of Klitschko have informed Fightnews.com that Klitschko-Haye will take place on June 20th in Germany. The contract is expected to be signed in the next few days.

Previously it was planned to stage the Klitschko-Haye fight in London at Stamford Bridge Stadium, which is home to Chelsea Football Club.

Chris Arreola (26-0, 23 KOs), who was considered as a possible challenger for Wladimir Klitschko in a case of refusal David Haye, may end up challenging WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (37-2, 36 KOs) at Staples Center in Los Angeles. For this to take place, it?s necessary for him to win on April 11th against Jameel McCline (39-9, 23 KOs) at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

You seriously feel Haye can beat Vitali?

Yeah I don't see why not, he is probably the fastest heavyweight and if he has the right gameplan could out last vitali.

I take it you don't :p

They are both good boxers but Vitali is just bigger and has a decent chin. It will be a tough fight and look forward to Quitsko staying on his stool after hurting his back again for the umpteenth time :p

I just think that Klitshcko is a better boxer, from what I've seen of him. And Haye, although a good boxer also, won't be able to decipher Vitali's method of boxing.

I really hope your wrong, I don't like the fact a whole family nearly own the HW division.

Fight Cancelled, Could Take on Wladamir

David Haye's bout with Vitali Klitschko has been cancelled but the Briton could still take on Klitschko's brother.

Vitali had agreed to fight on 20 June in London but the Ukrainian looks set to make a mandatory defence of his WBC heavyweight title on 31 March instead.

IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko has a proposed defence against Chris Arreola in March but that has not been finalised and he could face Haye.

"It looks like it's up to Wladimir," Haye's spokesman Elliot Worsell said.

Former world cruiserweight champion Haye, 28, won his first fight as a heavyweight against Monte Barrett in November, and could line up a bout with Wladimir within the next fortnight.

"David doesn't mind which Klitschko he fights and is quietly confident he'll now get Wladimir," Worsell said. "We'll see what happens in the next week or so."

Vitali's mandatory defence against challenger Juan Carlos Gomez had always been an issue with the Ukrainian agreeing to fight Haye despite the WBC maintaining he must grant the Cuban a shot first.
