WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye has revealed he could take part in a â€œnew Rumble in the Jungleâ€ fight in Africa.The 29_year_old Briton secured his world title with a points victory over Nikolai Valuev in November and is set for a mandatory title defence against Puerto Rican John Ruiz early in 2010.Providing he beats 37 year old Ruiz, Haye could face Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko later in the year.
Londoner Haye told the News of the World: â€œOf course I want to defend my title in Britain and also fight in Las Vegas, but as heavyweight champion of the world I also want to fight all over the world.
â€œMuhammad Ali is best remembered for his â€˜Rumble in the Jungleâ€™ fight. There was also his â€˜Thriller in Manilaâ€™ fight with Joe Frazier.
â€œI am going to Angola for the African Nations Cup next month and itâ€™s something we will continue talking about.
â€œAli is a massive hero of mine and if I could do something like he did then Iâ€™d love it. Maybe we can stage the new Rumble in the Jungle. I am looking to leave a legacy and to be able to fight in every continent would be tremendous.â€
