There's an awful lot of irony in that article, isn't there?

Vitali’s a nobody – Haye

UP FOR IT ... David Haye
EXCLUSIVE By CLIFF HAYES
Published: 25th December 2012
23

DAVID HAYE has urged WBC champ Vitali Klitschko to sign up for their world title fight — or be remembered as the man who fought nobodies.
Britain’s former heavyweight champ lost his WBA crown to Klitschko’s younger brother Wladimir in Hamburg last year.

But Haye is still eyeing one last fight before retiring and says a contract has been agreed with the 41-year-old Ukrainian — although nothing has been signed.

The Hayemaker, 32, blasted: “I always assumed he was quite a proud man and wanted to leave some sort of legacy behind, which he won’t do at the moment, because, can you think of any big fighters Vitali has fought?

“He’s had 50 fights against nobodies. The only fight of his that people remember is the one against Lennox Lewis — which he lost.

“He needs a fight people will actually remember — and the only recognised heavyweight out there is myself.”

I like Haye,but the only person with any relevance he fought at HW he lost to.
He has a damn good shot at beating Vitali however .. can't see the fight happening though.

Same shit different day with Haye.

I wish someone would remind him of his own average resume when he starts talking bollocks about a fighter, in this case Vitali who whilst not an ATG record shits all over Hayes. But people just keep licking Hayes balls.

Haye is everything that is wrong with celeb mad Britain.

In Haye we have a man who could be a HOF boxer and well known, but instead he'd rather be a fame hungry " celeb"and a part time boxer who will struggle to get in the HOF.

Agree with the above, although a lot of what he says is tinged with irony...

Yeah Vitali fought nobodies and Haye's resume is packed full of ATG's like Audley Harrison and Valuev.

Haye does have the G.O.A.T. SNV on his resume.

I doubt that even Haye himself believes the shite he spouts. He's just talking like a cunt because it will make people dislike him and pay to see him get beat. Playing the villain as usual.

but sometimes there's a very high price to pay to be known as a HOF fighter or a legendary fighter. Even the greatest sometimes end up in a horrible state, unable to take care of themselves. Not that I'm saying Haye could ever achieve legendary status or anything, even if he wanted to, but his goal was to win a world title, make as much money as possible, and retire with his health intact. Absolutely nothing wrong with this at all, and I think it's a very smart, and sensible choice. He's not gonna end up punch drunk. It's not an exiting choice though, and this is why I've always said that David Haye is not a fans fighter. He's not fan friendly at all. He talks so much shit, and his fans fall for it every time, then act like a spurned lover when he lets them down. Why do they fall for it? Why are they fans of a guy who is more businessman than fighter? A fighter that has no desire to achieve all he could? Like I said, nothing wrong in Haye's choice. Can't knock him for it, but as a boxing fan, I can't cheer for him.

Fully agree.

Whilst never being a fan of Haye I respect fully the skill set he brings to a fight. But as you said Haye is all about the money, hence his selection of fights.
