NEXT GAME:SatAccrington (a) Fixtures are subject to change Confident: Orients Sean Thornton AS fans queued up to shake hands with new world heavyweight champion David Haye on his return home -- he was keep- ing his hands to himself, particularly the onehebrokewhenlandingapunchtothe concreteheadof RussiangiantNikolai Valuev. Breaking the fifth metacarpal bone in his right hand in round two meant Haye beat the Beast from the East with virtu- ally one hand tied behind his back. Hesaid:HittingValuevwaslikepunch- ing a stone wall. I have never punched something that solid before. But breaks and bruises apart, Britains sixth world heavyweight champion was already preparing for his next fight. Haye promised a knock-out return to London for the first defence of his world heavyweight championship, with the O2 Arena set to be a 20,000 sell-out for a spring fight with mandatory challenger John Ruiz. The29-year-oldfromBermondseywants to take his growing legions of supporters on a lucrative ring-ride that would culmi- nate with him unifying the heavyweight division against the Ukrainian Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir. The ambitious Haye is speaking of wanting to clean up the division. But he knows he must first beat 37-year-old Ruiz, the so-called Quiet man born in the United States but of Puerto Rican decent whose main claim to fame is becoming the first Hispanic heavyweight champion of the world. Ruiz was paid to step aside and let Haye have the chance of taking the World Box- ing Associations belt from Valuev. Now Haye must go in against Ruiz before tak- ing on the Klitschkos, possibly in stellar fight nights at Wembley Stadium that would establish him as one of Britains highest-paidsportsmenthroughhisshare of gate receipts and pay-per-view televi- sion broadcasts. Haye, the former undisputed cruiser- weight title holder who returned in tri- umph to Stansted airport late last night to be greeted by a horde of fans, said: Ruizisthemandatorychallengerforthe WBA title so if I dont fight him theylltakethetitle from me, and I dont fancy giv- ing it up so soon after winning it. So it will be Ruiz next for me, and hopefully thatwillbeinthe UK. I definitely wantahomecom- ing fight and it would be amazing if I could fight Ruiz in London. That contest must wait until April or May next year because of Hayes hand injury, while Ruiz suffered a bad cut on the way to stopping German-based Turk Adrian Serin in the seventh round of a non-title bout. But Haye, who next time out can expect to at least treble the 2.5m he banked against Valuev, is already looking forward to prov- inghimself againstanAmerican who has won and lost the WBA title twice. Ruizisagoodfighter,very under-rated, said Haye. Hesnotthemostenter- taining of former cham- pions but hes won championships on several occasions and you dont do that through being a bad fighter. I dont feel Id struggle with him in any way, though. Hes pretty much the same size as me andIthinkIdjustbeway too fast and knock him out. Should he get Ruiz out of the way, Haye willthenseektounify the heavyweight belts in the fashion of Lennox Lewis who, until the week- end, was the last Briton to rule box- ings top division. Havingovercomehugediscrepancies in size against Valuev, who stood nearly a foot taller and weighed seven stone heavier than his rival, Haye insisted: I said I want to be unified champion and the Klitschkos are defi- nitely in my sights. Wladimir, at 33 the younger of the brothers, holds the IBF and WBO ver- s i o n s o f t h e h e av y w e i g h t championship. But it is 38-year-old Vitali, the WBC champion generally regarded as the worlds best heavyweight, who has stated his willingness to trade leather with Haye. I am ready at any time to give Haye the fight he wants and to beat him by knocking him out, he said. Lucky break: Haye shows off his injured hand and, below, parades his new title belt BY GEOFF TEATHER BOOKMAKER Paddy Power slashed the odds on new heavyweight world champion David Haye being crowned Sports Personality of the Year to 5-1, from 16-1, following his victory in Nuremburg on Saturday night. Paddy Power spokesman Darren Haines told LiteSport: With one of the last major sports event of the year, David Haye has rocketed into contention for the award -- although Jenson Button, much like his season in F1, may have raced too far ahead to be caught.
