David Haye could be left waiting until the New Year before he
gets a definite answer on a fight with WBC heavyweight ruler Vitali
Recently the Brit claimed that he has inked a deal to fight the
giant Ukrainian, but according to manager Bernd Boente a decision
yet to be made on Vitali's fistic future.
"Vitali will not make a decision before December or the
beginning of next year," Boente said.
"He's under no pressure. The WBC see him as their champion and
he only had a fight at the beginning of September. No champion will
fight twice in three months.
"Whether Vitali fights on depends on the political situation and
the coalitions formed.
"His party was only founded two years ago but it received 13% of
the vote. He's in parliament now as the party leader.
"We will have a clearer picture of the political landscape in
mid-December and after that Vitali will make a decision."
Haye has stated that a fight against Vitali is the only thing he
is targeting at present.
However, Boente remains unconvinced of Londoner's desire to face
his man and fears that a another disappointing contest, like the
one Haye pitched against Vitali's brother Wladimir, would be on the
cards if they gave him a shot.
He said:"It's always the same with Haye, we don't take him
seriously. He's a like a little dog that barks all the time.
"When the big dog - Vitali Klitschko - comes around the corner
he runs away.
"Look at what happened against Wladimir, we don't care about it
him any more. He talks but who cares?"
