Haye has an Aud­ley show­down in sight

Daily Mail - - Rugby League -

DAVID HAYE is head­ing to­wards an al­lBri­tish show­down with Aud­ley Har­ri­son rather than a World Heavy­weight Cham­pi­onship uni­fi­ca­tion fight with one of the Kl­itschko broth­ers. Har­ri­son (inset), the for­mer Olympic gold medal­list who res­ur­rected his ca­reer via a gal­lant vic­tory over Michael Sprott, has va­cated the Euro­pean heavy­weight ti­tle. This is a con­se­quence of the stale­mate in ne­go­ti­a­tions for Haye to fight Wladimir or Vi­tali Kl­itschko — the two Ukraini­ans who hold the ri­val ti­tles to the Lon­doner’s WBA World Cham­pi­onship. The dan­ger for Haye is not only that the Kl­itschkos will re­ject him but that their pro­mot­ers may en­tice Har­ri­son as an op­po­nent. Haye’s trainer-man­ager Adam Booth now hints a sell-out Novem­ber fight with Har­ri­son is on the cards. MARK HUNTER will re­turn to Great Bri­tain colours for the first time since win­ning row­ing gold at the Bei­jing Olympics af­ter be­ing passed fit for the sec­ond World Cup re­gatta of the sea­son. Hunter will re­new his tri­umphant part­ner­ship with Zac Pur­chase in the light­weight men’s dou­ble scull in Mu­nich over the week­end of June 18-20.
