Mike Tyson talks Haye and the Klitschkos...

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson believes there is still more to come from British heavyweight David Haye.

Haye retired after losing his WBA world title to Wladimir Klitschko in July of last year but returned in July of this year for a grudge match with Dereck Chisora, who he knocked out in just five rounds. 'The Hayemaker' is now looking to land a fight with Wladimir's older brother Vitali.

Tyson believes that even if he doesn't land a fight with Vitali he should continue with his boxing career.

"David should continue to fight because he's a young guy," said Tyson. "I thought David fought very well against Klitschko and I have a lot of respect for him because I expected him to be obliterated."

"Unless he has something else to do and plenty of money he should definitely keep fighting because he can get better and better."

"Fighting is our profession and its what we do. I fought 15 times one year."

Tyson was also praised the Klitschko brothers who some people believe are ruining the heavyweight scene because of their dominance of the division.

"They should dominate. They have learnt their craft and overcome adversity... People want to see very exciting guys, talking smack and knocking guys out. People want barbarism and blood... But I love waht the Klitschkos are doing. They beat people, they inspire people and they're erudite, they show you don't have to be brainless to be a boxer."

When asked if he would have defeated the brothers if they were around in his era, he replied: "I'd like to think so, my ego mates me think so! But these guys would have been hard to beat in any era, they're changing the face of boxing."
