Fans were left disappointed in 2009 after the Vitali Klitschko and David Haye fight in London fell through. This was compounded by the subsequent cancellation of Haye v Wladimir Klitschko in Germany. Haye was forced to pull out of the bout after suffering a reported back injury.
It was however the subsequent fight against Nikolay Valuev that would firmly cement David Haye as a household name. In an awe inspiring agility display, reminiscent of Mohammed Ali’s “Floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee” Foreman fight, Haye beat Valuev on points.
David Haye’s last two fights have left fans disappointed due to their devastating one sidedness. Mandatory challenger John Ruiz and then Audley Harrison proved to be less than adequate opponents. Critics and fans have thus clamored for David Haye’s last fights to be more becoming of the type of fighter he is.
Many say that only a Haye fight against the Klitschko brothers would provide such a bout. Haye already has the WBA (Word Boxing Association) Title, and a David Haye v Wladimir Klitschko fight would provide the chance for him to partially unify the Heavyweight division. Were Haye to beat Wladimir Klitschko he would claim the IBF (International Boxing Federation), WBO (World Boxing Organisation) and IBO (International Boxing Championship) titles. David Haye v Vitali Klitschko would let him claim the WBC (World Boxing Council) Title.
Haye v Wladimir Klitschko fight talks have stalled over several points including revenue split and fight location. Critics remain upbeat that a compromise can be reached, after Haye reportedly offered Klitschko a 50-50 split. Haye has however set a deadline of his 31st birthday in October 2011 as his retirement date, saying that "I'll just have to accept that becoming the WBA champion was enough and move on with my life. That'll be 20 years of getting punched in the face, which is a long enough time. I set my goals and achieved them so unifying the titles is the cherry on the cake but if it doesn't happen it wasn't meant to be and I've just got to get on with my life". Haye’s UK fans are sure to be praying for a UK based fight.
