Haye Klitschko

British heavyweight David Haye says that he would love to rematch Wladimir Klitchko, so long as his recent shoulder operation is completely healed.

"Good luck for his fight, heís fighting someone Iíve never heard of (Australian Alex Leapai). I hope he wins and keeps healthy and stays fighting for many years to come until my arm heals up and hopefully I can get a rematch." Haye said in an interview with Gulfnews.com whilst over in Dubai rehabilitating.

The 33-year Bermondsey Boxer revealed that he did all he could the first time around against the 6'6" German-based, Ukranian.

"I could go crazy worrying about the Klitschko fight, thinking I should have tried this or I should have tried that. But I could have tried something completely different and got knocked spark out. I could have been killed by trying something different. I gave the best I could on the night and it wasnít enough, thatís it really."

When asked if he does think thereís any chance of a rematch, his answer was not optimistic.

"I genuinely donít. But boxing is a funny game sometimes, you think you have no chance of getting a certain situation and all of a sudden it falls on your lap. But I donít want to focus too much on anything at the moment other than my gym and getting back to full fitness."
