Haye Camp denies Klitschko deal

Reports in the British press of a bout agreement reached between world heavyweight titleholders David Haye and Vitali Klitschko are wide of the mark, insist ‘The Hayemaker’s trainer and manager Adam Booth. It had been reported that WBC champion Klitschko claimed a ‘preliminary agreement’ was struck with Haye to meet at some stage in 2010. However, Booth has strongly disputed these comments, reiterating that no contact has been made with the Klitschko camp since Haye’s November title triumph over Nikolai Valuev. “There is absolutely no agreement in place for David Haye to face Vitali Klitschko next year,” said Booth. “We have had no contact with Vitali Klitschko or his team and were surprised to see him make those comments over the weekend. David’s next fight will be against American mandatory (number one) challenger John Ruiz, and that will go ahead in either April or May. It will take place in England and David will need to be at his best to come through that. The Klitschkos are very much on our agenda for 2010, but nothing is set in place and nothing has been agreed or arranged. We haven’t heard anything from the Klitschko camp since David won the WBA title and subsequently strengthened his bargaining position.”

Klitschko-Valuev in 2010?

By Alexey Potapov

Former WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev (50-2, 34 KOs) has told Fightnews.com that he’s looking to fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) in 2010. “I wish to fight against Vitali Klitschko,” said the Russian Giant. “It’ll be an entertaining fight. It’ll be more interesting than when I fought David Haye. The whole fight he just ran from me. Vitali is a great champion. I guarantee it’ll be a big fight. Vitali, I’m ready to fight. Are you?” Valuev lost his WBA world title against David Haye by majority decision in November, while Klitschko won a unanimous decision over Kevin Johnson in Berne, Switzerland last weekend. “For me it’s important to meet with David Haye so the Klitschko brothers can get all the world champion belts, but a fight against Nikolay Valuev would be interesting to millions of boxing fans,” Klitschko told Fightnews.com. “But if Haye continues to duck me, my team will begin negotiations for a fight against Valuev in 2010.”
