Wladimir Klitschko firmly believes David Haye will buckle under the pressure when the bitter rivals finally clash in a heavyweight unification battle in front of 50,000 boxing fans in Hamburg, Germany on July 3.
The 33 year-old Klitschko defends his IBF/WHO and IBO titles against the WBA king in what is being billed as the heavyweight fight of the year.
Between now and July 3 both Klitschko and Haye will be exploiting any physiological advantages they possibly can and Klitschko has started his campaign early.
Despite Klitschko believing Haye may not be able to handle the pressure come fight night the triple champion told to the Daily Star: “The crowd will bring the best out of me. Just how it will affect Haye is a different matter.
“He won’t have experienced that kind of thing before so I know I will have an advantage over him in that respect.
Klitschko added: “This will be my fourth stadium fight in succession and I can’t wait to fight in front of 50,000 people in Hamburg, which is where I live.
“I know exactly what to expect, I know exactly what’s coming at me. I have been there and done it before so I am fully prepared.
“Also, my failures have made me mature and a better fighter and man than I was before. I am getting wiser as I grow older.”
