As I told you in my blog last week, the erroneous report that David Haye taking on Wladimir Klitschko was close to being wrapped up turned out to be nothing more than monkey business. Even more comical than the report was that two days later Adam Booth, who maybe thought Wladimir was serious, turned his attention to Wlad’s brother Vitali and stated they would rather fight him instead. Sound familiar?
In the meantime Wladimir’s mandatory challenger Alekander Povetkin’s promoter went on record this week saying the would offer Wlad 10.5 million dollars to take the fight to Russia. Something tells me we can expect this deal to get done.
This will leave Team Haye to do what they do best, and that’s bark about who they want to fight instead. Now they are blowing smoke about taking on the winner of Ruslan Chagaev vs. Kali Meehan. My guess is Haye wants no part of Chagaev and is hoping Meehan somehow gets the victory here. What is more likely though is Haye taking on his fellow countryman/underachiever Audley Harrison in what will be the biggest “who cares” fight of the summer.
The Best 140 Performance Last Weekend
In a weekend of Jr. Welterweight stars televised over the past weekend there is one fighter who was by far put on the most impressive performance. No it wasn’t Amir Khan nor was it Victor Ortiz. In my eyes the best 140 pounder this weekend was Julio Diaz who defeated Herman Ngoudjo on ESPN’s Friday night Fights. Diaz, who many thought was past his prime, put on a great display with his unanimous decision victory. I’d like to see Diaz take on Tim Bradley in a California desert showdown in the near future.
