Report: There will be a Klitschko-Haye fight in '11

A German newspaper reported that the Klitschko brothers said they promise to fight WBA heavyweight champion David Haye in 2011.

Haye's camp offered Wladimir Klitschko, the IBF and WBO champ, a 50-50 split in a proposed fight last week. Haye, citing a back injury, was forced to withdraw from a fight against Klitschko in 2009. Vitali Klitschko has the WBC heavyweight title.

"We promise there will be a fight against Haye in 2011," the Klitschko's told the Germain Daily Bild. "He can choose which of us he wants to step into the ring against to lose his world title."

A torn stomach muscle forced Wladimir Klitschko to withdraw from a December 11th fight against Dereck Chisora.
