Ukraine Is Too Racist To Fight In

look geneva;”>Former WBA world heavyweight champion Haye remains hopeful he will fight the elder of the Klitschko brothers next year.

But Londoner Haye, 31, insists he will not travel to the Klitschko’s native Ukraine after being sent threatening emails.

He revealed: “I’ve never been to Ukraine but I have heard it’s very dangerous for a black man.

“There are crazy racists who have already sent me death threats.”

Vitali has only fought once as a pro in the Ukraine — in the capital Kiev in 1998 — with most of his bouts taking place in Germany.

Haye, who has re-applied to the British Boxing Board of Control for a fight licence, added: “Germany would be the best and safest place for me to beat Vitali and get out of the stadium alive.”

The last time Haye was in Germany, he was being hunted by cops for a post fight punch up with Dereck Chisora, who he subsequently knocked out this summer in a highly controversial heavyweight contest at Upton Park in East London.

He officially ‘retired’ after he lost to Vitali’s brother Wladimir in Hamburg but is now looking for a chance to redeem his reputation.


Haye said: “I’m too fast, too sexy and too talented to be blown away by a large, slow robot from the Ukraine.

“Me against Vitali Klitschko is the only heavyweight fight the world wants to see.

“I am not interested in fighting against 50 wimps like the Klitschkos do.

I want the big fights that no fan wants to miss while Vitali likes to compete against boxers who have no chance of winning.”
