Vitali warns David Haye

Klitschko Mgmt Group

By Karl Freitag

Although WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) is focused on defending his world title against Euro champion Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday night, he also had a chilling message for WBA titleholder David Haye on Monday.

“I want to fight David Haye very much,” said Vitali. “Wladimir wants to fight against him also. I want to fight David Haye because he has the WBA world title. Wladimir wants to fight him because it’s personal. Wladimir says he’s not interested in his title. David Haye touched him so deeply that Wladimir wants to shut his mouth in the ring.

“David Haye understands the fact that the Klitschko brothers will be the end of his career,” he continued. “The fight against me will be much shorter than against Wladimir because Wladimir will beat him badly all twelve rounds and then knock him out. I will give him a much easier proposal. I’ll knock him out in three, maximum four rounds!”

This Saturday’s “Fists Of Steel” PPV event is headlined by Klitschko-Sosnowski, plus in the 12-round co-feature, NABF heavyweight champion Johnathon Banks makes his first title defense against veteran Jason Gavern.

“Fists Of Steel,” presented by K2 Promotions and Klitschko Management Group, is being distributed in North America by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3 PM/ET – 12 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, Avail-TVN and DISH Network in the United States, as well as Bell TV, Shaw PPV and Viewer’s Choice in Canada, for a suggested retail price of $24.95.
