You are here: Southwark \ IT COULD BE GERMANY OR NOTHING FOR HAYE
20 February 2009
The negotiations for David Haye's bout with Wladimir Klitschko have hit the rocks this week, with a bout in Germany now looking to be the last chance to resurrect a deal.
The 'News' reported two weeks ago that the deal was not yet sign sealed and delivered despite reports, and that Klitschko was edging towards a bout in his adopted German homeland.
A source close to Haye has now stated that the fight deal is on the verge of collapsing, and that the Bermondsey man is willing to sacrifice home advantage to make sure the fight happens.
They said: "The fight is 50/50 now and in the balance. We still hope it will go ahead but I don't think it will be in England now. If it does happen it will be in Germany which in fact could be good for David as he can forget the promotional side of things and concentrate on the fight."
Two venues, Stamford Bridge and the O2, have been touted as possible locations for a June 20 contest, but both are looking unlikely to be used. The former may be too large for this fight, considering neither boxer has a Ricky Hatton like fan base, while the latter has a War of The Worlds event in the arena on that evening meaning they could not hold the fight there.
The giant Ukrainian has indicated that he may look at alternatives including unbeaten American Chris Arreola, as both sides seem to be stalling on details of the deal.
Haye's trainer Adam Booth has stated the fight with the American doesn't make financial sense, and would clearly indicate the champion's intentions.
He said: "They (the Klitschkos) would make exactly the same money in Germany as they would in England because we have dropped our figure to go to Germany. If they take a proposed fight with Chris Arreola, they will make substantially less. So people can now work this out for themselves.
"The original deal to co-promote the event would never work because of unacceptable terms. However, we're willing to sacrifice a little on our side just to get this fight made.
"David doesn't want to dodge Wladimir and just pick and choose his way through boring, fringe contenders. He wants to fight the best and restore some excitement to the heavyweight division. We only hope Wladimir feels the same way."

Haye's promotor Adam Booth sounds a right Charlie! "David doesn't want to dodge Wladimir and just pick and choose his way through boring, fringe contenders." Errr Adam....your man Haye isn't heavyweight champ, so he HAS to fight "fringe contendors" if the fights with either Klitschkos fail to materialise. Haye is very much just a contendor at this stage, and a very lightly tested one at that in the heavyweight division. If Haye wants a shot at the best, then he needs to get busy and take out these "Fringe" contendors first and not play silly magazine stunts. Haye might become a great heavyweight with big name recognition, throughout the world, not just in the UK. Once that is achieved by Haye, then surely his fights with either of the Klitschko brothers takes on a much greater magnitude.....surely that is what the boxing world wants. Of course this is assuming Haye doesn't find these "fringe" contendors too much to handle and expose his somewhat fragile jaw. Perhaps that's the real truth....It's Haye that's dodging the fringe contendors lest oneof them knocks Haye out and with it his chances of a title shot! I say let Haye fight his way to the top first....then he would be a worthy challenger.....at the moment Haye looks more "fringe" with a big mouth than credible contendor!
