Klitschko and Haye still 'miles apart'

BOXING: Vitali Klitschko admits he and David Haye are still "miles apart" from agreeing terms to meet in the ring as their saga shows no sign of ending.

Haye's feud with the dominant Klitschko siblings is ongoing, having lost his WBA heavyweight title ignominiously to IBF/WBO champion Wladimir in Hamburg last July before setting his sights on a shot at WBC champion Vitali (pictured right).

Tomorrow night, Haye's fellow Londoner Dereck Chisora attempts to snatch Vitali's title in Munich.

Few give Chisora, 28, much of a chance, but Klitschko has been quick to talk up his challenger's credentials and backed the Briton to exceed Haye's efforts last year.

"David Haye didn't want to fight," said Vitali. "He just kept running away from my brother. I expect a better fight from Dereck Chisora. He wants to go in, fight and go the distance. I didn't see that between David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko."
