Wladimir set to shun Chisora again in favour of Haye
Dereck Chisora’s chances of claiming two versions of the sports biggest prize have been taken away from the Londoner as WBO and IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko has called the fight off for a second time in three months.
Scepticism will again reign supreme as talks about the Ukrainian facing WBA champion David Haye have, once again, been dominating the headlines over the past two weeks, just as they did before Klitschko pulled out of their first meeting in December.
Chisora will no doubt be heavily compensated once again for his inconvenience, but many will see it as Wladimir’s only chance to book a July meeting with the “Hayemaker” and it is now unlikely that the bout with the British and Commonwealth champion will happen until after Wladimir faces Haye.
The news comes just hours after Ronald “Winky” Wright pulled out of a scheduled bout with another Briton, Matthew Macklin, who was booked to fight the hall of famer on April 9th.
