Default Re: Vitali to Leave K2 Promotions? Haye knocks wheels off Klitschko PR Wagon!

Employees of the month - K2's top fighters and PR men, the Klitschko brothers.

However, following this weekends brutal dismantling of top heavyweight contender Derek Chisora by former Champion David Haye, it seems the walls may have finally caved in on the K2 Public Relations HQ.

Directly following Chisora's narrow points loss to Vitali Klitschko back in February, Boente made a verbal agreement that the elder brother would fight the winner of a Haye - Chisora title eliminator. Sounds great, right? Well, apparently not . . . .

Boente has today issued a statement revealing K2 has no intention of working with David Haye, and will instead select HW non-entity Manuel Charrr as Vitali's farewell opponent in his September send off in Kiev, Russia.

This is a move that will put a sour taste in the mouth of fans around the world who are eager to see the second and third best HW's square off, and will leave them feeling stung by another devious move by Burnt Boente's K2 Promotions. It is also a move that is understood to have caused a huge rift within K2 itself, with Vitali fuming he will not be fighting Haye in his last fight despite promises from his boss that this would be the case.

Fans are now left with a fight that not even the two combatants want to see, and one which has truly exposed the true appalling behavior of K2 promotions to the masses. The situation has increasingly drawn comparisons to the Pacquiao - Mayweather scenario, with Bob Arum like figure Bernt Boente keeping his cash cow Vitali away from the Mayweather of Europe, despite it promising his career high payday.

The situation was made even more farcical when Manny Charr stormed Haye's post fight press conference demanding the Londoner fight him next, an indication that he is willing to walk away from K2 and after a huge paycheck against David Haye, and that power may be slipping away from Camp Klitschko.

How this will end is still unclear, there is a chance Vitali will walk away from Bent Boente and his younger brother in search of the Haye fight, or he may acquiesce and sign out with a fight against Charrr. Either way, one thing is for sure - this is finally one situation K2 cannot spin their way out of.

So Vitali should wait around for Haye a couple more years untill Haye finally has the courage
to sign a contract and get in the ring with Vitali? Just stupid, Haye is where Haye is because
of himself and has noone to blame except himself!

To everyone else it's perfectly acceptable to see a guy who lost to the champ fight the number two guy. It happens in every other weight class, just because the 1-2 HWs are related and have the same boss does not mean the same rules should not apply.
