Those David Haye – Vitali Klitschko Stories

I’ll have a lot more to say about this story — where David Haye claims Vitali Klitschko has agreed to a deal for a heavyweight fight in London in June — when and if Klitschko’s people confirm anything. Right now, it’s more than a little strange that Haye’s the only one talking. Per ESPN: “However, Klitschko has been ordered by the WBC to fight mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Gomez. If an agreement isn’t reached by Dec. 19, that fight is supposed to go to a purse bid. Klitschko hasn’t commented on either fight.”
