Victory For Vitali, Now He Wants Haye

Within minutes of retaining his WBC Heavyweight title, Vitali Klitschko had made another attempt to get into the ring with David Haye, calling for a clash with the former World Heavyweight Champion at Wembley Stadium.
Klitschko, whose brother Wladimir beat Haye to take his title, called for the fight after a dominant ten-round display against Tomasz Adamek in Poland. The 40-year old Ukrainian was never really tested by his opponent and the referee was forced to call an early end to the fight with Adamek rocking.
In the post-fight interviews, Vitali wasn’t interested in talking about his dominance over Adamek, instead choosing to focus on the “long-tongued” David Haye. Wladimir failed to knock out the Brit, which is something Vitali is seeing as a personal conquest, trying to knock out the former Heavyweight Champion – and in Britain too, claiming that fighting at Wembley is “another dream.”
Should the fight with Haye come about, Vitali could go on to become one of the oldest to win a world heavyweight title, five years behind George Foreman who achieved his feat at the age of 45. The Ukrainian dismissed claims that he would box on to beat Foreman, but also denied that his retirement is imminent and that he wants “two or three more” fights.
