Haye Gives Adamek a Shot, But Says Vitali May Withdraw

By Chris LaBate

WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is giving Polish star Tomasz Adamek a shot to beat WBC champion Vitali Klitschko on September 10th in Poland. Adamek, like Haye, is a former cruiserweight champion who moved up to the heavyweight division. But, Haye has a feeling that Vitali will withdraw from the fight.

Haye is facing younger brother, IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko, on July 2 in Hamburg, Germany. He expects to give Wladimir such a beating, that Vitali will withdraw from the Adamek fight in order to get revenge. Haye then expects Wladimir to fight Adamek instead.

"I'm not sure of how much of a chance [Adamek's] got. He's small like myself. He's got a lot of heart. I like what he's done in the heavyweight division. He hasn't fought the best out there, but he's new to the division and I think he's got a chance. Vitali is getting on in years. But, whether Vitali fights Adamek is another thing. I'm thinking I knockout Wladimir in July, and then I'm thinking maybe Wladimir might fight Adamek, and I'll fight Vitali. After I knockout Wladimir Klitschko, his brother is not going to want to fight Adamek, he's going to want to get revenge and fight me knowing that I'm going to retire in October," Haye told OnTheGrind Boxing Radio.

Davey should just shut upright now, he doesn't need to sell tickets or promote, the Klitschko's sell out arenas in Germany any day. He only keeps barking because he's so unsure of himself. He's getting so repetitive of himself it's…

Now we get to hear David Haye's opinion on other fights, involving people he has never fought and never will fight. This is wise of Haye, to prepare for his new career as "fight commentator", which begins 3 July.

[QUOTE=mathed;10426166]Haye is going to get under Wlad's skin and make him come to the fight aggressive. Haye is going to be tons faster and much, much more agile than Wlad, he will be able to stick and move at will.…

[QUOTE=edgarg;10427086]Jut to correct a little thing. Klitschko has NEVER been knocked out, legitimately or otherwise. He has been on the wrong side of 3 TKO's.[/QUOTE] A TKO is a knockout. Technical Knock Out....He has never been knocked out cold but…
