Ahmet Oner Rips David Haye Over "Farce' With Klitschko

By Inna Lagun

Before the fight took place, promoter Ahmet Öner was pleading with David Haye to take Wladimir Klitschko's head off. Instead, Klitschko won a lackluster twelve round decision over Haye last Saturday in Hamburg, Germany to unify the WBA/WBO/IBO/IBF titles.

"I must say that it was a pure waste of time. [Klitschko] is known to be vulnerable. If there is any pressure, he begins to waver. Haye never really tried to do that. He obviously could be a champion in running or squatting, but the sport is called boxing. Pro boxers should not be afraid of punches. [A pro boxer] should go into the ring to destroy his opponent. Haye opened his mouth often before the fight, but nothing was implemented. It was a farce," Oner said.

Oner understand why Haye is trying to secure a rematch with Wladimir, and predicts that his heavyweight Odlanier Solis would knock Haye out.

"Of course, he would once again like to empty the cash register," Oner said. "I am 100% sure that Solis knocks Haye out. Solis is not like Wladimir, who never takes risks and only thinks about how to avoid being hit."
