IBF / WBO champion Wladimir Klitchsko defends his belts this Saturday in Hamburg against David Haye, and with all due respect to the following account of yesterday’s press conference in The Daily Record, neither fighter is quite as skilled on the microphone as CM Punk.
At yesterday’s press conference ahead of their unification world heavyweight clash Haye said: “”This is going to be the most brutal execution of a boxer that you’ve seen for many, many years. I’m going to go out there and absolutely destroy him, really quickly.”
But Klitschko has vowed to teach Haye some respect. He said: “I’m a very lucky person in that I am healthy enough to perform. No matter what, it is disgraceful and disrespectful for a man to wish to damage your health.”
“This game, this sport, is very intense and unfortunately there have been a lot of cases where people have been handicapped and people have died during and after fights.
“I felt embarrassed at the way David Haye acted in the press conference. Because it also casts a shadow on the sport.
“I just feel an obligation to give him some rehabilitation on July 2 because it will make him a better person.”
