David Haye: Solis Will Go Down as Yet Another Fat Bum!

By Chris LaBate

WBA heavyweight champion David Haye watched Vitali Klitschko's first round TKO win over Odlanier Solis. Haye is going to fight Vitali's younger brother, IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko, on June 25 or July 2, but after Wladimir he wants to face Vitali in the fall. At the end of the first round, Solis ate a right hand and went down, but during the fall he injured his right knee and couldn't continue.

Regarding the injury, Haye places the blame on Solis' struggles with weight. Yet he credits the 2004 Olympic gold medal winner with using the correct strategy to win the fight.

"Now that's why you shouldn't have excess body fat. A lean 30-year-old healthy athlete shouldn't have joints/ligaments popping for no reason," Haye explained. "Solis knew how to beat Vitali, but years of obesity stopped him [from] being able to execute. He will unfortunately go down as yet another fat bum!"

If Haye is so confident, take your pick. Choose any Klitschko you want, or choose them both one at a time. Winner Take All! ONE Purse. Winner takes home all the money, the loser goes home with what he had…

He wants to talk trash, he loves the cameras, the media, the interviews, but he's had more than TWO years to fight either Klitschko, and he's opted NOT to! He'd rather talk smack from the cheap seats about what he'd…

[QUOTE=Flux;10260856]You're trying to twist it, but he said if he turned up in "prime shape." He was still carrying extra weight.[/QUOTE] He said 'in shape'. Solis was in the best shape he had been in for years. He was looking…
