Coming off of Saturday’s win over Roy Jones Jr, Bernard Hopkins didn’t take long before calling out Britain’s WBA heayweight champion David Haye.
Hopkins avenged the defeat he suffered against Roy 17 years ago.
After the fight Hopkins announced, “People will think the punch in the back of my head made me a little crazy, but I want Haye.”
Heavyweight champion David Haye spoke to UK’s radio 5 Live and added, “I think he just wants a big pay day, to fight for the heavyweight championship of the world he can demand big money.”
Haye who defeated American John Ruiz at Manchester’s MEN Arena on Saturday, added: “Bernard Hopkins is one of my idols. Looking back at his fights over the last 20, 25 years, he’s always been a great fighter.
“But now he’s 45 years of age, he fought another 40-year-old on the same night as me, and it was a dire fight for everybody there in attendance.”
