Haye Complains Of Broken Toe

Immediately after being defeated by Wladimir Klitschko in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday night former WBA heavyweight David Haye blamed his disappointing display on breaking his little toe three weeks ago.

After all the thrash talking beforehand Haye was soundly out-pointed over 12 rounds and while the Londoner had no complaint about the decision he did complain that he broke his toe in the build up to the fight

Speaking to Sky Box office after the fight Haye said: “I felt I could get past his shots but I broke my toe three weeks ago. I’ll show you my toe now . I could not throw my haymakers. . I could not push my right leg I tried to ignore it, I could not unload my right hand..

“ I was thinking about pulling out but all these fans came to watch me and I did not want to let them down. I’ve proved my chin against a massive puncher. I’m in agony right now. Wladimir fought a smart fight tonight . All the lead up to the fight was about getting Wladimir to stand and fight but it did not work and all credit to Wladimir.

Despite all the disgraceful and uncalled for insults directed at Klitschko by Haye before the fight Klitschko still managed to stay dignified in victory.

“I was criticised by Haye after the Imbragimov fight. I did not get the challenge I thought I would get from him he fought like all the rest.. I still am not happy about the way he behaved before the fight he was a disgrace. .

“I did not get the true challenge I was promised. He criticised all the other opponents and he was scared to fight. My brother and I are now undisputed champions and thank you to the British fans for coming over here. It is good for the sport. “
