Current WBA heavyweight champion of the world, David “Hayemaker” Haye, responded via YouTube on why the Wladimir Klitschko fight didn’t happen and why it will probably never happen in the future.
With allegations of ducking being thrown David Haye’s way by the Klitschko brothers and boxing fans, Haye says that it’s not the case, the reason the fight fell through was because of revenue share and purse split– it all came down to money, Haye wanted 50-50 and Wladimir wanted the lions share feeling he was the bigger draw.
A Haye vs. Klitschko fight is one of the most anticipated boxing events–behind a Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight. It would be the biggest heavyweight title fight since Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis, and would be the first heavyweight boxing match to garner huge international attention.
Much like the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight, there is little confidence that a Haye vs. Klitschko fight will ever happen. Fans have their own opinion on who is ducking who, and many believe it’s David Haye who is scared to face Wladimir Klitschko having pulled out of scheduled fights with the brothers due to injuries. Wladimir released a YouTube video earlier this year calling Haye out. Wladimir believes Haye is scared and all talk but no action. Haye is scheduled to fight Audley Harrison.
