Vitali Klitschko has vowed to do what brother Wladimir failed in his triple title points victory over David Haye if they ever meet ...
and send him crashing to the canvas.
Haye was outpointed in Hamburg on July 2 to give the younger of the two Ukrainian brothers the World Boxing Association title to add to his World Boxing Organisation, International Boxing Organisation and International Boxing Federation crowns.
The Briton wanted to unify the world title by beating both brothers before retiring on his 31st birthday on October 13. He blamed a broken toe on his unanimous points defeat and said he would be prepared to postpone retirement if Wladimir agreed to a swift rematch.
Both brothers were angered by Haye's trash-talking before the fight and World Boxing Council champion Vitali, four years' Wladimir's senior at the age of 39 but still regarded as the superior fighter, said he wished Haye had been floored.
"I was so happy when Wladimir won the fight but I was a little bit unhappy because I wished that Wladimir sent him to the floor," he said.
"If I fought David Haye, I can promise one point. The reason why I would fight against him, just with one goal. To send him to the floor."
