“He agreed the money, he agreed the fight, the date; everything was sorted
“Obviously he’s gone home and watched some DVDs of me in action and made a U-turn.
“He thought I was just a cruiserweight champion but he’s watched me in action and thought to himself “he’s no ordinary cruiserweight.””
Haye also revealed that money was an issue, claiming that many of the names touted were fighting for their pension.
“They’ve come in with some ridiculous figures. A lot more than I’ll be making from the fight after all’s said and done.
“They realise they’re not only going to get beat, but they’ll get violently smashed.”
