Reigning WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko is confident that a fight between his brother Wladimir and British heavyweight contender David Haye will happen in the next 12 months. Vitali told Setanta Sports News that talks were underway and he was certain the fight would happen. He said: “I’m more than sure the fight will be this year, in 2009. And there’s a big chance it will be in England because the interest in this fight is very big.”
Vitali revealed that he stepped aside so his brother could face David Haye. He added:
“I would be happy to fight Haye, but my brother wants to fight him also.
“So, we have decided that the youngest brother will fight David Haye.”
