David Haye: Klitschko's Manager in Tears, I Want Vitali!
By Luke Furman
Olympiahalle, Munich, Germany - Former heavyweight champion David Haye has claimed that Bernd Boente, manager of the WBC heavyweight king Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40KOs), attempted to eject him during an interview with German cable network RTL. Haye sat ringside to watch Klitschko's twelve round unanimous decision win over Dereck "Del Boy" Chisora (15-3, 9KOs). The scores were 118-110, 118-110 and 119-111 - but Haye was not impressed with Vitali's performance.
Haye wants Vitali to honor their agreement from last December. The British boxer claims the two sides reached an agreement, but then Team Klitschko wanted to re-negotiate the financial terms.
"While I was ringside doing an RTL interview, Bernd Boente went crazy and called security to have me ejected....how sad is he. I always had a feeling Bernd was to blame for trying to re-negotiate the agreed terms. Seeing Bernd with tears, foaming at mouth - was classic. Licking my lips at the prospect of sharing a ring with Vitali. Let's hope he honors his deal we agreed to in December," Haye said.

Only in this era can a two cent salesman like David Haye enjoy the kind of attention, misguided respect, and financial compensation he has in relation to the ring skill he demonstrates. If only David Haye were ten to twelve…Comment by One Of A Kind on 02-19-2012
Anyone not wanting this fight is stupid. The way i see the HW division is like this: Vitali Klit Wladimir Klit ------------- The stand out best. David Haye ------------- Will beat everyone else - Will test the Klits. Dereck Chisora…Comment by whatismyname on 02-19-2012
