WBA heavyweight champion David Haye has been saying all week that he will take the fight to IBF/WBO and IBO king Wladimir Klitschko when they clash in a unification battle in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday night.
The 30 year-old Briton insists he will take Klitschko out in style but the Ukrainian’s respected trainer Emanuel Steward is not convinced and says Haye will revert to type and adopt the same safety first strategy he did when he won the title against Nikolay Valuev
“David, regardless of what he might say he is going to do, will come out and fight the way he did against Valuev and in all his other fights against big guys. We have seen all the tapes and we know about David Haye,” said Steward.
“Haye brings to the ring, speed, power and the mindset of a winner. He is confident and that’s something Wladimir hasn’t experienced sine his first fight with Sam Peter.
“There is a whole new energy that Haye brings that wladimir has not had to deal with since then,.” added Steward.
