Wawrzyk and Charr in the frame for Haye comeback
Polish star Andrej Wawrzyk has apparently jumped the queue to oppose former WBA title holder David Haye on June 29 as one-time Klitschko foe Manuel Charr continues his barrage of abuse to goad the Briton into a fight.
Despite Charr being ruled out of a summer meeting with the ‘Hayemaker’ by The Daily Telegraph, the Lebanese bruiser is keen to be pencilled in for the date as 27-0 Wawrzyk is pushed by some as favourite for the Manchester clash ahead of the former world title challenger.
Wawrzyk, 25, is largely unknown outside of his native Poland, but is rated at number seven by the WBA and at fourteen with the World Boxing Council, which would meet Haye’s criteria for his 29th professional outing.
Whether Charr has done enough with his recent publicity stunts to seal the deal will be confirmed in the next few days, although it wouldn’t be surprising either or neither fighter confirmed as the secrecy surrounding the announcement rumbles on.
Haye trainer Adam Booth has stated publicly that the Londoner’s next challenge will be brought to light this week as fans clamber for tickets for the event at the Manchester Arena in eleven weeks time.
