Klitschko promoter: Haye would fight Vitali

Vitali Klitschko’s promoter says David Haye would come out of

retirement to fight the WBC heavyweight champion next year if a

deal can be reached on financial terms.

Bernd Boente told Sky Sports on Tuesday that negotiations with

Haye’s promoter Adam Booth are in progress for a possible bout in

February or March.

Boente says ”we are still waiting for some numbers from British

TV and then we’ll see if the business case is realistic and then we

will do the fight or Vitali will fight another opponent.”

Haye, the former WBA champion, lost to Vitali’s younger brother

Wladimir in July.

The British Boxing Board of Control said earlier Tuesday that

Haye does not want to renew his license to fight.
