Heavyweight boxer Haye hits back at claims of chickening out of Vitali Klitschko bout.

London, May 23( ANI ): Heavyweight boxer David Haye has strongly rejected claims made by Bernd Boente, the manager of Klitshcko brothers, that he had turned down a bout against Vitali in September, since he was scared of him.

Boente said Haye barks like a dog, and chose to fight Dereck Chisora instead in July, which would be an easier contest for him.

Haye said Boente's accusation were futile and had no logical reasoning to back it.

"It makes absolutely no sense for me to turn down a fight I desperately want. Remember, the whole idea behind going ahead with this Chisora fight was that a victory may then lead to a fight with Vitali Klitschko," The Sun quoted Haye, as saying.

"That was my plan, my reason for returning to the ring. I want to fight on July 14 and then again in September, and have been telling people this for months now," he added. ( ANI )
