Klitschko Mormeck and Adamek: We Want HAYE


WBA heavyweight champion David 'the hayemaker' Haye (24-1, 22ko) has seemingly got the entire division begging for a fight with Englishman.

First of all, Wladimir Klitschko claims in a recent publication that he believes that a unification between himself and Haye can now take place in the fall of this year. The younger Klitschko has declared that he has sought and won permission from the sanctioning bodies for a unification fight between himself and the Londoner to take place without any excuses.

Former cruiserweight champions Tomasz Adamek from Poland and Jean Marc Mormeck from France have also staked a claim to fight the Hayemaker.

Adamek cleared out the cruiserweight division with impressive wins over the likes of Johnathon Banks, Steve Cunningham and O'Neil Bell has stepped up to heavyweight as of November last year and rattled off 3 impressive victories over big opponents in Golota, Estrada and last week, Chris Arreola.

Mormeck, who Haye crushed by knockout has also stepped up to heavyweight in somewhat less impressive fashion with hard fought wins over Maddalone and Fres Oquendo.

Haye's options are plentiful and with so many wanting to barter with him he may be able to play one off another.

Wlad obviously brings the largest risks but also the biggest rewards. Adamek, who is smaller but a real threat to Haye perhaps would be the second most lucrative fight. Whilst Mormeck is likely not to factor on anyone's radar given his previous KO defeat and his lack of sparkle within the heavyweight division.

Adam Booth revealed to The Telegraph that negotiations will likely commence in about a month's time and that their likely target would be Klitschko.
