Haye: I'm Going All Out To Give Klitschko a Mental Break

David Haye is ready to turn Wladimir Klitschko's world upside down.

The Londoner is out to upset the odds and the giant Ukrainian when they fight to unify the heavyweight titles in Hamburg, Live on Sky Sports Box Office HD, on July 2.

He has already started in the build-up by refusing to shake Klitschko's hand and releasing his own iPhone app in which you can knock 'an anonymous Eastern European's head off' and is now relishing the chance to blow the heavyweight division apart.

"What I've got to do here is flip the script on him," he told Ringside.

"I've got to do everything he doesn't want. Everything that makes him feel uncomfortable is what I'm going to do and I've been doing it in the lead-up to this fight.

"And I'm going to be doing it during the fight as well.

"He had it his way in the contract, he walks to the ring second and gets all these other bits and pieces; that was his time to get his way, anything other than the contract, he's not having it his own way - including the fight.

"The most important thing is the fight and he's not having it how he wants to have it.

"I know what he wants, I know what he wants me to do to make him feel comfortable in the fight. But I'm going to do the complete opposite."

"I like the big events, when I walk out into the arena the more people there the better I seem to fight and I thrive off the atmosphere and this event will be no different.

"This is the defining fight for me - it doesn't get any bigger than this. This is the one that people are going to remember in years to come."

Haye is a big talker... I don't really take what he says seriously

Comment by paulf on 06-17-2011

Loved Haye's "Save it for after the fight, man!" to Wlad looking to get Haye to shake his hand in the faceoff. Wlad had to use all his willpower to not give Haye a beating then and there. This is…
