Why would Vitali and the great Bonte offer Haye much more than a mandatory challenger? Do you think Bonte's stupid? You don't become the premier HW kingpin promoter by being an idiot. Haye should be offered no more than Manny Charr in all honesty and if he doesn't like it he can go back to the jungle.
