David Haye unimpressed by out of shape heavyweights

david haye17.07.08 - British boxing sensation David Haye has dismissed Wladimir Klitschko’s fighting style as predictable and boring in another attack on the current batch of heavyweight boxers. In an interview with Setanta Sports News at his training camp in north Cyprus Haye gave a candid assessment of Klitschko’s last fight.

“I wasn’t impressed with what he did. If Wladimir Klitschko was 6”2 and 220lbs I don’t think we’d be talking about him right now.

“His boxing ability after 50 fights doesn’t impress me. I can see what he’s going to do.”

Haye went on to describe today’s heavyweight boxers as ‘fat slobs’, calling the entire division a disgrace..

“They seem to think just because they’re heavyweights they can come in out of shape. No fighter can fight as compared to when they’re in shape.

“These guys are very slow. The shots I’ve been hit with and hurt with, even put down by, are shots I couldn’t see, and were thrown by people who are very fast. Heavyweights don’t punch that fast.

“Come November you’re going to see what the future of the heavyweight division looks like.”
