Boxing - David Haye in Talks With Vitali Klitschko Well surprise, surprise, it seems that David Haye’s retirement was just like everything else that came out of his mouth: a complete load of shit.

Often referred to in the British press as the heavyweight champion of the world – though the WBA belt he held made him as much the heavyweight champion of the world as the belt currently holding my jeans up makes me emperor of the universe – he retired last month following a ridiculously lame run of high profile fights which included that farcical victory over Audley ‘Fraudley’ Harrison, and a loss in his last bout against the real heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko.

Haye’s antics which preceded the Klitschko fight saw him run his mouth about what he’d do to Klitschko – but when fight night came around, Haye put in a half-arsed effort and was comfortably defeated by a wide unanimous decision. Haye attempted to place the blame on his little toe, which was broken before the fight – but most saw him for the ‘all mouth no trousers’ guy he is.

There was talk of a rematch, but the ‘Bermondsey Bullshitter’ – sorry, the ‘Bermondsey Bomber’ – opted for retirement.

But, like herpes, he’s back just when you thought you’d never have to deal with him again.

Haye says that talks with Wladimir’s brother, Vitali Klitschko, have opened for a fight scheduled to be held in March 2012, and that he will lower his pay demands to get the fight made.

Hopefully his experience against Wladimir will have stung him and he’ll be more willing to throw caution to the wind and go for the KO. He has a puncher’s chance – if he doesn’t damage a cuticle when he’s putting on his gloves, that is.
