David Haye promised to knock out Wladimir Klitschko before the end of round six on Saturday night, although the Brit was unable to land any meaningful punches which saw him lose his WBA heavyweight belt and many are now speculating as to whether Haye will fight again.
However, the 30-year-old seems to have put retirement talk on the back burner and clearly seems keen to have another crack at Klitschko, claiming that a broken toe prevented him from fighting properly in Hamburg, an excuse that many have ridiculed.
“Wladimir made a statement saying first he would give me a rematch and then his manager said he wouldn’t give me a rematch,” Haye told Five Live.
“If there’s a potential rematch in there, well the guy’s beaten me and obviously I’d love the opportunity to challenge for his title.
“I came to the table with a title, I don’t have a title now, I’m title-less. And every boxer wants the opportunity to fight for a title”.
Even so, Klitschko and his brother Vitali might be in no rush to fight again considering they hold every belt in the heavyweight division and the only thing to Haye’s advantage is that there are no other viable contenders for them.
