Everyone seems to have an opinion about who David Haye’s next opponent should be, Audley Harrison say’s it should be him, Wladimir Klitschko thinks Haye is running scared and Vitali seems happy to fight anyone who steps forward.
Wlaidmir has already signed to fight Samuel Peter again in November, whilst noticeably, Vitali has a date open for October the 16th in Hamburg, Germany with Shannon Briggs being touted as his opponent.
Vitali has already stated that Haye is not returning his calls and Don King has priced Nikolai Valuev out of a challenge, also Thomasz Adamek has now signed to fight Michael Grant.
With all the goings on, it will be at least early next year before anything between the Haye camp and the Klitschko brother’s could be arranged.
Audley Harrison threw his hat into the ring for a fight with Haye back in June, but with time ticking on and nothing being heard from the Hayemaker stable, it looks more and more unlikely to happen.
Personally, I think Haye would have a good chance against Wladimir and a win there could set up a money-spinning revenge bout with Vitali and then David Haye could retire whatever happens before his 31st birthday.
The two big pay days along with two victories would place Haye as certainly one of the best Cruiserweight to Heavyweight’s of all time and up there with the Evander Holyfield’s and Roy Jones Jr’s of this world,
One thing every fight fan knows is, there is no certainty’s in boxing, All you have to do is look at the Mayweather, Pacquiao situation and that speaks volumes.
Whoever David Haye fights next though, there will certainly be a lot interested eye’s on the outcome.
