Haye wants Klitschko brothers to box each other

Posted By: Staff

London, Apr 13(ANI): WBA heavyweight champion David Haye has told the Ukrainian Klitschko brothers to belt up if they want to unify the world heavyweight division.

Haye insists he will be the undisputed champion by the time he retires at 31, and for that he needs to take on World Boxing Organization champ Wladimir and then World Boxing Council king Vitali to achieve his dream.

The brothers' mother has ordered them never to fight each other, but Haye said: I don't care if those two fight in the boxing ring or in the back yard at their mum's house, but that is what they should do."

"They keep bleating about fighting me, but if they are serious about unifying the world title there is a very quick way to get it done and dusted - box each other and then the winner takes me on," The Sun quoted Haye, as saying.

"If they don't want to upset any members of their family, then one brother should give the other his belts before stepping into the ring with me," he added.

Meanwhile, Wladimir launched another verbal bout at Haye, said: "David, you've bitched out on fighting both Klitschko brothers twice already and now's the time to make it happen."

"On behalf of the boxing fans around the world, I am officially calling you out to fight me. You can't run away from me forever and you need to follow through with this fight if you want to be respected. I'm ready. What are you waiting for?" he added. (ANI)
