Former WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye has told Vitali Klitschko that he wouldn’t last even six rounds against him, if they ever meet in the ring.
The 6ft 8in Ukrainian giant successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title last Saturday by stopping Germany-based Syrian Manuel Charr – with a nasty cut above his eye – in the fourth round. However, Haye feels he should be ashamed of himself because his defence.
The 31-year-old brash Londoner believes it was lacklustre performance by Vitali and he would have definatley lost against anyone good.
He said: “I was very disappointed with Vitali’s performance and I would love to get in with him and knock him out.
“I saw so many holes in his defence. He would not last six rounds with me.
“I would throw clusters of punches. Vitali is a warrior but his chin is not better than my punch.
“His performance was terrible. He should be ashamed of himself.”
Haye, who left everyone flabbergasted with his impressive Luxembourg Boxing Federation licensed fifth round win over his fellow countryman Dereck Chisora at the Upton Park, desperately wants to take on Vitali now.
Prior to Haye’s fight with Chisora, Vitali’s manager Bernd Boente stated whoever wins the fight would get a shot against Vitali and Haye now wants Vitali and his camp to live up to their words.
The Hayemaker also believes that his fight with Vitali would be one of the biggest in the history of sport.
He added, “Bernd Boente, the Klitschkos’ manager, said after Vitali’s fight with Chisora that we should fight each other and the winner then fights Vitali.
“I’ve done my part and I hope Vitali is a man of his word and fights me. It will be the biggest fight in Germany and one of the biggest in boxing history.
“It would be a huge fight and I want it desperately.”
All left to see is whether if Vitali will really set up a fight with Haye or not.
