Remember when David Haye taunted, even seriously insulted, the Klitschkos by having T-shirts made up with the striking image of Haye holding aloft the severed heads of the two brothers? Well, Haye has been given a taste of his own medicine by Manuel Charr.
28-year-old Charr is hoping to land the role of opponent for Haye’s June 29th ring return set for Manchester, and to heat things up, “Diamond Boy” has released a graphic image of himself holding Haye’s severed head, with the caption: Not my Toe!” written underneath. The image, which also has emblazoned on it: ‘Saturday, June 29th, Manchester Arena, Manchester, England,’ has been put up on Charr’s Twitter page.
So far, there has been no public response by Haye, but who knows, the former cruiserweight and WBA heavyweight king might just bite and sign to face Charr, 23-1(13) in June? Right now, most web sites seem to feel Charr – who has lost only to WBC ruler Vitali Klitschko, via a cut eye – is the favourite to land the fight.
