Postby batangastig » Tue Feb 17, 2009 3:14 pm

earlier this week according to Haye's camp, the talks with the ukranian were sucessful. now theres new news that there are talks of suspending the fight. we should not lose all hope cuz earlier this month, this same drama was seen in the hatton-pacquiao negotiation talks.

Klitschko-Haye talks suspended!
fightnews.com

According to the Ukrainian language section of klitschko.com, Wladimir Klitschko has decided to stop negotiations with David Haye. He says the main problem has been a lack of professionalism on the part of Haye and his representatives. Wlad says Haye can’t decide on his demands. “If Haye continues in the same spirit, it will be two more years before he get a chance to reach a championship fight.” In the event the fight with Haye is not resurrected, Wlad plans “to face Chris Arreola or find someone else. This will be determined later.”

Wladimir Klitschko ends David Haye talks
By Gareth A Davies

Wladimir Klitschko has pulled the plug on Londoner David Haye's hopes of challenging the giant Ukrainian world heavyweight champion this summer after suspending negotiations for the voluntary defence.

Klitschko, the World Boxing Organisation and International Boxing Federation title-holder, put a statement out through his website, Klitschko.com, on Wednedsay. The website is in four different language sections – German, Russian, Ukrainian and English. In the Ukrainian language section, Klitschko stated that plans are underway to face an alternative opponent – most likely the unbeaten American heavyweight Chris Arreola.

"Haye can't figure out what he wants," Klitschko stated on his website. "Two weeks ago, negotiations were coming along but at this time they have been suspended. If Haye plans to continue in the same way it will be two more years before he gets his chance to reach a title fight.

"We will fight Chris Arreola or find someone else. The main problem is the lack of professionalism on the part of David Haye and his representatives," Klitschko added.

Michael Jennings goes to Madison Square Garden, New York, on Saturday night as a massive underdog against Miguel Cotto, the Puerto Rican former WBC champion, whose last 13 fights have been for world titles.

The Lancashire boxer, fighting at world level for the first time, insists he is not fazed by the step up. "I don't think this could have come at a better time for me," said Jennings, with a record of 34-1. "I've got the experience from all my fights, amateur and professional, and it has all built -up to this. This fight has come at the right time for me, definitely."

Jennings added: "This is the opportunity against the best in the world to see how good I am. I've already beaten the European champion - so what do you do? You just keep on looking for better things. I'm going to take the opportunity, without a doubt, and give it my best shot."
