David Haye Makes Klitschco lose his rag

David Haye and Wladimir Klitschco don't face each other in the ring until 20 June, but that hasn't stopped them from starting the pantomime antics; Haye showed up at a news conference wearing a T-shirt that had a picture of him holding the disembodied heads of Klitschco and his older brother – WBC Heavyweight Champion Vitaly – sparking an angry reaction from the Ukrainian.

The pair will be squaring up at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, home of FC Schalke 04, and the fight is expected to draw a crowd of 60,000. Still, a bit of slagging each other off never hurt the ticket sales, did it?

That is terrible. It's unspeakable, it's impudent. I am going to give him a lesson in good behaviour,' Klitschco said, in the manner of an annoyed headmaster. 'First, I wanted to knock him out in the first round. But now I want to make it a long process and I want to enjoy it, and then I will knock him out in the 12th round. I hope he doesn't go down too early.'

'There is no chance the fight will go to 12 rounds, unless he gets a chin transplant,' responded London loudmouth Haye. 'It will be his last fight. When I beat him to bits he will retire. Vitali will throw in the towel to save you, he will pick you off the floor.'
