A win over Haye, especially at 41 or 42 y/o would greatly improve his resume and bump him a spot on the ATG list, perhaps even into the top 10 on most writers/fans lists.
I personally think he's got 2 more big fights in him. I'd like to see him fight Haye in May, then come back in Sept or October and beat either Fury or Sitverne.
I think it would be great for his legacy, but since Vitali has not at this point done what he needs to do to secure legacy fights, I am not sure he cares.
In Europe, he is a god, and its hard living in a bubble. Maybe he just doesn't know how unimpressive his record is.
I hope I am wrong, but I don't see it coming off and at this point, and I really don't care that much myself. Finally stopped caring around the Chisora fight, and Charr didn't re-kindle my interest. If it happens, great. If not, hell, its been fun and that is all.
