Klitschko-Haye offer details

By Karl Freitag

The David Haye camp has stated that Haye does want to fight Wladimir, but they cannot accept certain “financial details.” What are those details? “The offer was 50%/50%, no options,” Wladimir Klitschko advisor Shelly Finkel confirmed to Fightnews.com. Finkel added that he hasn’t heard from David Haye’s manager Adam Booth in three weeks after initially speaking to him half-a-dozen times.

It seems the main hang-up was that the Haye camp wanted to keep 100% of the UK TV revenue and give Wladimir 100% of the German TV revenue. The Klitschko Camp wanted to put all the TV money in one pot and split it 50/50%, which they consider more than fair since Wladimir would be risking three belts to Haye’s one, and Wlad is widely considered to be the world’s true heavyweight champion.

Wladimir will now defend his belts against Alexander Povetkin on September 11 in Frankfurt, Germany, while Haye is expected to face Audley Harrison in an all-British affair in November.
