Klitschko-Haye Update!

By Alexey Potapov

Fightnews.com has learned that a bout between WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (37-2, 36 KOs) against former WBC/WBA/WBO cruiserweight champion David Haye (22-1, 21 KOs) is being discussed for September 12. The bout would likely land in Germany, although a brand new 50,000-seat stadium in Donetsk, Ukraine (Donbass Arena, home of FC Shakhtar Donetsk) opens on August 29th and is also under consideration. Haye was originally slated to face Vitali’s younger brother, WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko (53-3, 47 KOs) on June 20th in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, but a month before fight Haye suffered a back injury and pulled out.

As for a possible unification fight between Vitali Klitschko and WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev (50-1, 34 KOs), the Klitschko brothers do not wish to deal with Don King, co-promoter of the “Russian Giant,” whom they believe is asking for too much to make the fight. Klitschko-Valuev could take place next year, however.
