David Haye is no match for me in 'Sunday Brunch'

We like to point out overlooked but important news stories from the week that just expired but sometimes we don't have those stories. Sometimes we have news such as heavyweight boxer David Haye threatening to retire.

Oh the humanity.

You remember Haye, don't you? The guy who lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Wladimir Klitschko in a championship match so boring and worthless that the girl who walks around announcing each round retired after the sixth round to enter a monastery and put a little excitement into her life.

Well, Haye has been talking about retiring in October. Now he says he will stick to that plan -- unless Klitschko gives him a rematch. Yeah, that's what we want. It will be mildly amusing to listen to Haye as we get closer to his Oct. 13 threatened retirement date: "OK, Wladimir, what's it gonna be? I'm almost out the door, Wladimir. I mean it! If my phone doesn't ring right now, that's it! Wladimir? Wladimir!"

Hey, Wladimir, do us all a favor. Don't call.
