Haye gives up facing Klitschkos after clash with Chisora
London: Former WBA champ David Haye has given up on facing Vitali Klitschko after his clash with Dereck Chisora.
Haye had hoped to take on WBC champion Vitali, 40, but the Ukrainian is set to face Syrian Manuel Charr on September 8, before hanging up his gloves to go into politics.
Wladimir, 36, has said he has no interest in facing Haye again, after adding the Londoner’s WBA belt to his IBF and WBO world titles in a points triumph last summer.
“The Klitschkos’ manager Bernd Boente said to fight Chisora and then the winner fights Vitali. Now it seems like he is fighting someone I’ve never heard of called Jimmy Carr, or something,” said Haye.
“There’s a reason for him choosing this opponent because they know Vitali will knock him out, look good and get a nice win before going into politics,” he added.
Londoner Haye, 31, admits his comeback at Upton Park on July 14, after announcing his retirement in October, is set to be for one fight only, after being left frozen out by the brothers.
“I’ve not thought beyond this fight but if there’s no Klitschko fight, it’s going to be back for one fight only. My last fight was a loss and if I had to stay retired it’s not ideal to go out on a loss, but I can put that right against Chisora,” he said.
