Britain’s world heavyweight boxing champion David Haye has agreed to take a £2 million pay cut in order to land his dream bout against Vladimir Klitschko – but the Ukrainian is yet to agree to a date.

The Sun reports that WBA champion Haye is so determined to unify the heavyweight boxing titles that he has agreed to all of Klitschko‘s demands, including the choice of venue, a 50-50 purse split and the choice of host broadcaster in Germany.
Yet despite South Londoner Haye agreeing to all of his prospective opponent’s demands, the Klitschko camp has so far remained silent.
Haye will reportedly be losing at least £2m by agreeing to share his cut of the Sky pay-per-view revenue from his proposed fight against the Ukrainian.
Should Haye beat IBO, IBF and WBO champion Vladimir Klitschko he would then have to face the other Klitschko brother, Vitali, if he is to claim the WBC belt and unify the division.
