At the boring world heavyweight championship bout between Wladimir Klitschko and Hasim Rahman this past Saturday, the only man who brought some excitement to the show was former undisputed world cruiserweight champion David Haye, who showed up in Mannheim, Germany, to call out both Klitschko brothers.
Now Haye claims that he came to an agreement with Vitali regarding a bout in June, 2009. But before that, the older Klitschko brother has to defend his WBC championship against no. 1 contender Juan Carlos Gomez.
Now the “Black Panther” addresses Haye: “I understand how this kid feels and what he thinks. In fact, we have a lot in common. We both used to be the best cruiserweights in the world, now we both want to become world heavyweight champions and get rid of those annoying Ukrainians.
"But, David, I got one piece of advice for you: Keep your hands off Vitali. He’s mine. You can go after Wladimir if you want. He will be easier to handle for you anyway.
"If you desperately want to fight Vitali, you will have to wait until I stripped his belt from him. After we dethroned both Klitschko sisters, we can go on and find out one on one who is the best heavyweight fighter in the world if you want. It will be my honour and pleasure to beat you up to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.”
