Recently boxing has been intertwined with gambling thanks to David Haye doing what he does best, and I’m not talking about knocking people out. If there was a pound-for-pound talk champion, Haye would be just that, and now it looks as though he will be rewarded with the fight he talks about most.
Wladimir Klitschko withdrew from his fight with challenger Derek Chisora last night, a move that looks to have opened up that Haye sized can of worms once again. Reports have stated that negotiations may well begin in Las Vegas on Saturday, the night Klitschko was supposed to be taking on the British challenger Chisora. Whether this is a move by Wladimir so that his brother can’t get anywhere near Haye is unclear, but if Haye succeeds in splitting up the brothers then his mouthing off will have had some success.
Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner, Amir Khan, will be fighting in Vegas on Saturday night, and the only other massive news that could come out of Nevada would be if somehow Pac Man and Money get together to sort out THE fight. Haye v Klitschko, Pacquiao v Mayweather on the same bill. At least tell us you’ll think about it, guys!
