After this weekend saw boxing matches that included Haye v Harrison and Pacquiao v Margarito, the focus once more turned to two fights that are arguably the biggest in the game: Pacquiao v Mayweather and Haye v Klitschko.
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jnr have long been battling to claim the mantle of “best pound for pound fighter”, though they, to date, have kept this battle to being a war of words as attempts to set up this huge bout have stalled, primarily due to contract terms over blood testing.
Pacquiao took on Mexican Margarito on Saturday, and won in fine style, in what his manager insinuated before the bout could be his last fight. But boxing fans want to see Pacquiao-Mayweather.
Haye v Klitschko (either Wladimir or Vitali, both of whom hold belts) is the heavyweight fight the fans want to see.
Vitali Klitschko is 39, and the current WBC World Heavyweight Champion. He has announced his intention to retire at the end of 2010.
Wladimir Klitschko is 34, and looks the more likely opponent for Haye. Wladimir is the current unified IBF, IBO, WBO World Heavyweight champion.
David Haye is the British WBAWorld Champion who defended his title against Sydney Gold medal winner Audley Harrison, 39, with a third round Saturday night knockout, prompting fans to call once more for the bigger fight.
As a result, Haye v Klitschko is being hyped as the biggest fight in boxing. Speaking after Haye v Harrison, boxing promoter Frank Warren claimed that Haye v Klitschko was now bigger than Pacquiao v Mayweather, but which fight do boxing fans want to see happen the most?
