Wladimir Klitschko insists that David Haye will not be fighting his brother Vitali until the Londoner has his British licence renewed.
Haye is scheduled to fight British rival Dereck Chisora at Upton Park on July 14, with the view of taking on WBC heavyweight champion Vitali in September.
But Wladimir, who beat Haye on a unanimous points decision in Hamburg 10 months ago, has played down talk of a potential bout with his brother after the previously-retired Briton was stripped of his license following a press conference brawl with Chisora in February.
"There is nothing that could be made," Klitschko told Sky Sports News.
"First of all David Haye was officially retired, he didn't have a licence so there couldn't be any conversation.
"With David Haye, we have been handling a lot for many years, we've heard a lot of nonsense and lies.
"And right now, he's actually getting ready for the Chisora fight."
Wladimir also questioned the decision to stage a British grudge match between Haye and Chisora, who caused such a storm with his antics before during and after his defeat to Vitaly.
Haye and Chisora famously clashed in the press conference that followed that fight, and Wladimir added: "It's actually really surprising to me that this fight is happening on British soil. I don't want to promote this fight, but it's happening and I have to make my statement.
"It's sending a bad message: that the worse you behave, the more money you're going to get and you will get known. It's not the right way to do it.
"I'm not saying Chisora shouldn't get another chance, but not right away."
