Unfinished business


FORMER WBA heavyweight champion David Haye could be set to come out of retirement and face WBC titleholder Vitali Klitschko in March.

Haye, who retired in October following a unanimous points defeat in a unification contest against Vitali’s younger brother Wladimir back in July, has been in discussion with Vitali’s camp over a possible match-up.

The 31-year-old ex-undisputed cruiserweight champion reveals that talks have been ongoing.

The south Londoner told the BBC's HARDtalk programme: "I haven't seen a contract but there's definitely talks going on.

"I said before I retired I would love that fight and there's a date in March that's already been talked about."

Vitali’s manager Bernd Boente has indicated that the 40-year-old is interested in a bout with ‘The Hayemaker’.

“It’s still the biggest heavyweight fight out there anywhere in the world,” said Boente.

“We are in talks [with Haye’s camp] and we will have to see what the next couple of weeks will bring. There is no interest from Wladimir’s side for a rematch but with Vitali it is a different story. Vitali has always been prepared to fight anyone, but he definitely wants to fight Haye. It feels like unfinished business.”
