In a recent interview with BBC Radio 5, WBC/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko made it known that he is very willing to meet the challenge of WBC/WBA/WBO cruiserweight champion David Haye, who plans to make a move to heavyweight in November.

"He's an exciting fighter so why not? I hadn't heard about David Haye at all until last month," said Klitschko. "But I've checked his record and he is a good fighter with a good record. If he wants to bring excitement then I wish him best of luck. He better get himself in the gym and get ready to fight.

"He is young and is trying to put attention on himself and that may work for him because he has to be very loud, but not only with his words but with his actions. I wish him the best of luck with that."

Following his unification win over Enzo Maccarinelli, Haye blasted Klitschko's performance against Sultan Ibragimov.

"I'd fight Wladimir Klitschko in my next fight if I could after his pitiful fight against Sultan Ibragimov. That was embarrassing and he wouldn't look forward to fighting someone with my kind of style - powerful, explosive and able to take him out with any shot," Haye said.

Haye will have to wait, Klitschko confirmed to radio show that he planning to fight WBO mandatory Tony Thompson in Germany this summer.

"Until the fight with David Haye I have to stay active as I am nervous and I have to get myself in shape," Klitschko said. "So I am going to fight in July against Thompson - he is the WBO's number one mandatory contender so I have chosen him."
