Haye targets Klitschkos



David Haye wants to become the undisputed heavyweight champion and fight both Klitschko brothers.

The Briton set out his plans in Paris on Friday, saying he was priming himself for bouts against Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, who hold all the important heavyweight titles.

Haye, 32, said the best way to achieve his goal is becoming the undisputed champion was to secure a bout against WBC champion Vitali before a match-up with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Wladimir.

"The world needs one unified champion and I hope we can agree a fight at a football stadium in Germany this summer against Vitali," said Haye.

Haye won the WBA heavyweight title after defeating Russia's Nicolay Valuev and defended his title twice.

But he was on the wrong end of an unanimous decision when he fought Wladimir Klitschko in July 2011.

Haye then retired before returning to defeat compatriot Dereck Chisora in London last July.

"After I have fought Vitali, I want revenge against Wladimir to be able to unify the heavyweight titles, which has not been done in several years," he added.
