De la Hoya: 'just get it on'

Oscar de la Hoya has urged David Haye and the Klitschko brothers to resolve their feud in the ring.

"David Haye, Klitschko - just get in the ring. It will be a great fight, doesn't matter who wins or loses."

Haye's manager Adam Booth has admitted that bitter negotiations to secure the WBA heavyweight king a unification battle with either of the Ukrainian world champions are no nearer a conclusion.

But speaking exclusively to Ringside, six-weight world champion-turned-promoter De la Hoya insists a fight with Vitali or Wladimir can be made - and expects the Londoner to emerge victorious.

"This is a sport, this is what we live for, for these big fights, for these great-name fighters to face each other," he said.

"David Haye, Klitschko - just get in the ring. It will be a great fight, doesn't matter who wins or loses.

"Just as long as it's a great fight, you'll have two winners. It shouldn't be difficult to make; let's get it on.

"David is a great athlete, which I believe is one of his advantages over a Klitschko. He is capable of knocking a Klitschko out.

"It's a very dangerous fight for David, but very winnable."
