Former two division champion David Haye admits that he was suffering from so much pain during the fight with Wladimir Klitschko, that at one point the British boxer and his team discussed the possibility of stopping the fight. Haye suffered a broken toe three weeks before last Saturday's fight with Klitschko in Hamburg, Germany. He says the injury was preventing his movement and his ability to throw hard punches.

After briefly discussed the possibility of stopping the fight, Haye made a final decision to finish the contest for the thousands of British fans who traveled over to Germany to support his cause. Hay stated afterwards - "we could not [stop the fight] with such great fans here."

"I couldn't move freely around the ring, or move the right foot because I broke a toe on the right leg about three weeks ago. It was frustrating. I couldn't throw my punches. I still hit him and fought smart. Maybe I wasn't as good as I could have been, but I gave it everything. I thought that the adrenaline would help me, but it was difficult," Haye said. "Right now I want to take a break, watch the tape [of the fight] and see what went wrong."
