I will go into Klitschko’s backyard to fight: Haye

London, Mar 3 (ANI): World Boxing Association champion David Haye has said he will go into Wladimir Klitschko’s backyard to unify the world heavyweight title.

The WBA champion said that negotiations to fight Klitschko are back on track in a big way and it looks as if the showdown is heading for Germany where Klitschko is based.

Haye said: “We are back on and it’s all the same to me where it takes place. It does not bother me, Munich, Berlin, Gelsenkirchen, his backyard. I simply don’t care, it’s all the same to me.”

“I’m prepared to go into his territory to get what he has been hanging on to for far too long. It doesn’t faze me. I have done it before and I will do it again,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.

“I went to Germany and beat Nicolai Valuev, the heaviest and biggest heavyweight of all time when I was the underdog. I did it with Jean Marc Mormeck when I went right into the heart of the Paris suburbs where he lived and knocked him out to become the world cruiserweight champion,” Haye said.

“I’m not phased… I’ll do it again with Klitshcko. Let’s get him in the ring, that’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter when, it doesn’t matter where, just so long as he turns up on the night,” he said.

“If he wants to wear these gloves or those gloves. Fine. Just give them to me and I’ll put them on. It doesn’t matter what I knock him out with,” Haye added.

Haye’s manager Booth is reportedly negotiating the finer points of the contract but virtually everything was settled during the last round of talks before Klitschko pulled the plug. (ANI)
