Haye: German E.coli More Dangerous Than Klitschko

David Haye has renewed his taunting of Wladimir Klitschko by claiming the E.coli outbreak in Germany poses more of a threat to him than his opponent's punches.

The deadly strain has claimed 48 lives so far and was blamed on bean sprouts from an organic farm in Germany.

Despite the fighter's tongue-in-cheek quip, trainer Adam Booth has revealed the team have in fact brought two vans stocked with organic British produce to feed the WBA heavyweight champion ahead of Saturday's unification fight in Hamburg.

Haye said: "The German E.coli is more dangerous than Klitschko, without a doubt!

"I can control what Wladimir does but if I get that E.coli, I'm not sure what my defence for it will be like. But I can defend myself against whatever Wladimir is going to chuck at me on Saturday night."

The finger of blame for the outbreak has been pointed in various directions, but only yesterday German officials closed a primary school due to the ongoing threat.

Experts have also issued warnings about cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce in the country as they fight to contain the outbreak.

Haye normally consumes only carefully-sourced, 100% organic British food under the direction of nutritionist Ruben Tabares anyway, so this week's measures are not particularly out of the ordinary.

His trainer and manager Booth said: "We've sent two vans of food over with us to Hamburg.

"We're not eating any German bean sprouts - everything is English and organic."

Booth, whose fighter risks his WBA title with Klitschko's IBF and WBO belts on the line at the Imtech Arena, was less wary of the bug's threat than his charge.

He said: "The chances of getting hit by E.coli are 0.01% which are better odds than getting hit by Wladimir Klitschko."

Haye has done it again. The one liners are hilarious. He's now got the Klit brothers and their fans both angry and seething at the same time. I think everybody will be watching to see if Wlad can avenge the…
