IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and WBA heavyweight champion David Haye faced off at the kickoff press conference for their July 2 clash at Imtech Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
“I looked into his eyes and saw him beaten and broken. He’s never fought anyone with my attributes, it’s new territory for me and for him,” said Haye (25-1, 23 KOs). “He’ll do what he always does. I’ve fought these robots before – I’ve never lost, at amateur or professional level, to an eastern European fighter and that’s not going to change now…..He’s a fraud and I’m good at exposing frauds.”
Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) stated, “David Haye is going to be my 50th knockout. 49 fighters have been knocked out in the last 15 years and David Haye has completely disrespected them. I will show him that he is just going to be another like the 49 before, he will be number 50 on July 2nd.”
