Vitali Klitschko says he’ll fight Haye next

Vitali Klitschko announced on Saturday that he will face David Haye in his next fight but no date was announced, Reuters is reporting.

However, Klitschko’s U.S. advisor, Shelly Finkel, told RingTV.com that the announcement was premature.

“It’s not true unless David Haye comes to the table with what we asked for. Otherwise, no,” said Finkel. “At this point, it’s nothing unless they come back to us. I always used to speak with Adam regularly.”

Klitschko made the announcement to the crowd at Espirit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany, after Wladimir Klitschko stopped Jean-Marc Mormeck in four rounds.

“I can announce that my next fight will be with David Haye,” Klitschko said.

Haye Tweeted, according to Reuters: “Vitali has just finally agreed to fight me in a live RTL (television) interview. He told me I will be his next fight. Let’s get ready to rumble.” 

Haye was outpointed by Wladimir Klitschko in July.

But Finkel said Klitschko corrected and clarified the situation at the post-fight press conference.
