Hayden’s getting over her fist-fighting ex Wladimir Klitschko by reportedly tackling a new athlete: Mark Sanchez!

It hasn’t even been two weeks since we learned about Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko‘s breakup, and it’s already being reported that she’s moved onto Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez! Though a source tells RumorFix.com that Hayden and Mark are “just friends” after they were photographed May 30 outside an In-N-Out Burger in Laguna Hills, Calif., another eyewitness claims things are just heating up.

Mark, 24, and Hayden, 21, were first spotted Feb. 25 at a pre-Oscars party hosted by LA’s Chateau Marmont, and a partygoer told Us Weekly “the flirting was mutual.”

Considering the disastrous fallout of Mark’s alleged fling with 17-year-old Eliza Kruger, it’s not surprising that he’d want to keep rumors of a new relationship quiet. But if Hayden and Mark eventually do come out as a couple, we have to say — at least they’re a lot closer in age than Hayden was to 35-year-old Wladimir!
