David Haye has stated his intention to face the winner of the Joshua/Klitschko super fight in April and believes the lesser-experienced champion will be the man to walk away with the victory.
And David Haye has had some words for the young champion should he emerge victorious at the Wembley Stadium bonanza.
Speaking to Sky Sports news the former WBA Heavyweight champion insisted a fight with the young lion Joshua can and should happen if Joshua walks away from Wembley with the gold:
“If AJ beats Klitshcko, which I and the rest of Great Britain are hoping he does, any time he is ready to do it I am ready.”
He was also very enthusiastic that a potential clash between the two would draw mega numbers and would not just be the biggest fight in the division but in the sport as a whole:
“David Haye is the biggest fight on the planet. Let’s make it happen.”
The ‘Hayemaker’ is also confident that he has the skills and power to eliminate the 0 from Joshua’s thus far perfect record:
“I’d have fought him in my first fight back from retirement because I know I can beat him.”
Haye, who has fought his way back from injury numerous times, is yet to face any highly-regarded heavyweight on his comeback trail but is gearing up for a grudge match with current WBC Cruiserweight champion Tony ‘Bomber’Bellew.
Considering Haye likes to carry himself as a legitimate heavyweight title contender many feel the Bellew fight – against a man who’s only foray into the heavyweight division will be for one night only – might be a step in the wrong direction and certainly won’t convince anyone of his qualifications in the long run.
The last time Haye fought anyone of any real calibre he lost a unanimous decision to Wladimir Klitschko in Germany several years ago.
