Haye Now, Haye NowBOXING: The centuries-long flirtation between David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko appears to be over, with Haye admitting he’s all but given up on fighting the Ukrainian.
Brit Haye said he had hoped to face the Ukrainian, who holds the IBF and WBO heavyweight titles, on 2 July.
But the Londoner thinks Klitschko’s rescheduled bout with Chisora on 30 April means the fights are too close.
“If he doesn’t fight me on 2 July he’ll never fight me,” said Haye, who plans to retire when he turns 31 in October.
“I know I can retire later this year with my head held high knowing I did everything in my power to make these fights happen.”
We’re still not quite sure who’s been dodging who in these bloody fights. Can’t they just take it into the street like the end of Rocky V? Or was it Rocky VI? Christ knows.
