Vitali Klitschko wants Haye fight

The Klitschko brothers doubt Haye’s desire for a rematch

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has told BBC Sport he would be prepared to fight David Haye.

Vitali’s brother Wladimir beat the Briton on points in Germany on 2 July.

“I was the happiest man in the world that my brother beat him but I’m unhappy that Wladimir [was not able] to send him to the floor,” said Vitali.

“That did not happen because it’s difficult when someone is running away. Maybe in the future if I have a chance to send him to the floor, I will.”

But Vitali added that he and his brother – who could yet face Haye in a rematch – no longer have as much motivation to take him on since he no longer holds a world title.

By beating Haye, Wladimir added the British fighter’s WBA belt to his IBF, IBO and WBO titles.

“It was big motivation to fight David Haye because he had the one title we didn’t have, but now we have all the titles in the heavyweight division,” said Vitali.

“Sometimes boxing fans are confused about who is the world champion, but now no questions, the world champion is Klitschko. That it’s two brothers is not important.

“One of the boxing experts said right now that there is the biggest crisis [in boxing]. The name of that crisis is Klitschko brothers. We have a lot of power. We have a couple more years dominating at heavyweight.”

After his defeat by Wladimir, Haye spoke of his desire to avenge that result, but the Ukrainian has questioned his beaten opponent’s motivation.

“I don’t really believe he wants to have this rematch because the end of the fight won’t be changed in any way,” said the 35-year-old.

“He’s talking about finances because it’s a good way to make more money. Well, it’s not just about money in sport. Will I concede a rematch? Maybe yes, maybe no. I have some time to think about it but there are good names such as Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury, new fighters who haven’t lost and have all their ambitions.

“I believe David Haye got his 15 minutes of fame in the last two years on the cost of the Klitschko brothers’ name, because that’s the way he was promoting himself.

“I think he has talked about his retirement by October and I believe his dream is coming true. He can retire and go to Hollywood like he has been dreaming about.”

Ministry wants more: ECC allows 13 per cent increase in gas prices for fertiliser plants

 Some ministers oppose rise in fuel prices for fertiliser manufacturers, CNG outlets . DESIGN: CREATIVE COMMONS

ISLAMABAD: 

The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet has quietly given the go-ahead to the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources to increase gas price by 13.15 per cent for fertiliser manufacturers with immediate effect.


The ministry had proposed an increase of 100 per cent in gas price for fertiliser plants effective from July 1, 2011. However, ECC accorded approval for an increase of 13.15 per cent which was worked out by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) and directed the petroleum ministry to seek approval either from the prime minister or cabinet for the 100 per cent increase.


The ministry had sought ECC’s approval for increasing gas tariff from 10 to 15 per cent for domestic consumers, 15 to 20 per cent for commercial and industrial consumers and 100 per cent for fertiliser manufacturers. It had also proposed taking prices of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to 65 per cent of petrol price. At present, CNG price stands at 50 per cent of petrol price.


Sources said during the meeting of ECC on Thursday, some ministers opposed the increase in gas prices for CNG outlets and fertiliser plants.


Fertiliser factories are paying Rs59.28 to Rs102.01 per million British thermal unit (mmbtu) for gas being used as feedstock in Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited’s (SNGPL) system. Commercial consumers are paying Rs563.76 per mmbtu, CNG Rs503.63 per mmbtu, industrial consumers Rs382.37 per mmbtu and power plants Rs332.36 to Rs980.61 per mmbtu.


“The petroleum ministry wants to end distortion in gas prices and ECC has in principle agreed to this by approving the increase in prices,” an official said, adding, however, the issue would be taken up with the prime minister and cabinet for a formal approval.


“If power plants and other consumers are paying higher prices for gas, then why fertiliser manufacturers should not pay the same price,” the official said, adding the idea behind the increase in gas price for fertiliser units by 100 per cent was to bring it on a par with prices paid by other consumers.


Sources stressed that old fertiliser plants had benefited much from cheaper gas supply and the subsidy could not continue for long as different sectors, particularly textile, were protesting against the concession.

LONDON: Tennis legend John McEnroe believes Andy Murray needs to develop aggression against the greats of the modern era if he is to reach the level required to win Wimbledon.  “Murray needs to get to them,” he said. “He’s got to find a way to get under their skin. It should be part of his game, instead of saying ‘we’re great friends and everything is wonderful’.”
