The former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye has confirmed his team are in talks about a fight with Vitali Klitschko in March. The Londoner officially retired in October but was known to be ready to fight again if the opportunity arose for him to avenge his July defeat by Wladimir Klitschko or take on his elder brother.

Haye yesterday confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in sport, telling the BBC: "I haven't seen a contract but there's definitely talks going on."

"I said before I retired I would love that fight and there's a date in March that's already been talked about," added Haye, who wants to redeem himself following a poor show against Wladimir.
