London: British boxer David Haye has said that may just put off plans to retire from the ring at the age of 31 to get another shot at Ukrainian pugilist Wladimir Klitschko.
It maybe recalled that Haye had lost to Klitschko last weekend in Hamburg, Germany.
“I’d love the opportunity to try again as the challenger," The Telegraph quoted a humbled, quieter Haye, no longer a world heavyweight champion after losing a unanimous point decision to Klitschko on Saturday night.
He added: "I hate losing, and the way I feel today, if he offered me a fight in November, I would take it.”
Haye had previously been adamant until he lost to Klitschko by unanimous decision on Saturday night that he would walk away from the sport on October 13, when he turns 31.
He said: “It’s down to him to give me the opportunity. Maybe my trash-talking will come back to bite me. If he wants me, I still here as the challenger. I’d go back to Germany to fight him. I hope it can happen."
