Haye’s manager confirms Vitali Klitschko deal is on the table

David Haye’s manager and trainer, Adam Booth has confirmed a contract to fight WBC heavyweight titleholder Vitali Klitschko early next year, in Dusseldorf, Germany, is on the table and under consideration.

“We have received a contract to fight Vitali Klitschko and our lawyers are looking at the details of what has been offered, ” said Hayemaker co-owner Booth in The Sun newspaper.

That news follows former WBA champ Haye’s decision to lower his pay demands and accept less than a 50-50 split of the fight revenue.

Should the Englishman, 31, accept the terms being offered by the elder of the Klitschko brothers, then Saturday, March 3, appears to be the likely date for the showdown.
