David Haye eyeing Vitali Klitschko for next year

Published Add your comment

David Haye has again revealed a desire to set up a showdown with Vitali Klitschko for the WBC Heavyweight title.

Haye was scheduled to fight Manuel Charr at the end of this month but was forced to call it off after picking up a hand injury in training.

The 32-year-old only sees this as a setback, however, and still believes he is on course to face off with Klitschko.

The ‘Hayemaker’, who once held the WBA heavyweight title, has not had a bout since knocking out Derek Chisora at West Ham United’s Upton Park in 2012.

He has vowed to keep himself injury free so as to be ready for Klitschko once a deal can be done for the fight.

“Hopefully [Vitali happens as] that's the goal, to regain the championship," he said to Sky Sports.

“Vitali Klitschko has to fight with a guy, I forget what his [Bermane Stiverne] name is.

He has to fight with a guy who just won a fight against Chris Arreola a few weeks back.

"If it does happen [with Vitali], it probably won't happen until next year - so I'm just going to stay active as much as I can without getting injured.

“I'm looking forward getting back into the mix of things."

Vitali is not the only Klitschko Haye has his eye on either, he has long said he would be keen for a rematch with Wladimir after the Ukranian won their 2011 match up with a unanimous decision.
