Haye: I can give Vitali the mega-fight his resume is missing
By Michael Collins: David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) still isn’t giving up in his seemingly hopeless pursuit of a big money fight against 41-year-old WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41 KO’s) despite the apparent lack of interest coming from the 6’7” Ukrainian. It seems like the more Vitali ignores Haye, the more Haye continues to talk up a fight between him and Vitali.
Haye said to the telegraph.co.uk “There’s nobody else in heavyweight division that can give RTL the viewing figures…But the bottom line is that he’s a fighter and hopefully he wants the fight the fans want. He’s never had that flagship fight, that one mega-fight that people will always remember him for.”
I don’t think Haye would be a fight that would make much of a serious impact on Vitali’s resume to tell you the truth. Having Haye on his resume would be pretty much about the same as having other guys like Shannon Briggs, Samuel Peter and Corrie Sanders.
Those were all former heavyweight champions of the world that Vitali beat, and all of them held titles for just a short period of time. Haye is no different than them. He briefly held the WBA heavyweight title until Vitali’s brother Wladimir Klitschko easily beat him. Haye’s done nothing since that fight two years ago other than beating a domestic level fighter by the name of Dereck Chisora.
Since Haye hasn’t shown any interest in rebuilding his career after his loss to Wladimir, then why should Vitali bother with him? When you see a guy that is no longer active then it’s hard to take them seriously.
I actually rate Haye below the likes of Peter, Sanders and Briggs because I think all three of those fighters would have beaten Haye in their primes. Can you imagine what the 6’4” Corrie Sanders would have done to Haye if they fought? I feel the the same way about Samuel Peter. Back in 2005, Peter was a much different fighter than he is now. He’d have likely torn Haye apart back then.
