Klitschko: "David 'The Loser' Haye is Scared and a Liar"

By Mark Vester

WBO/IBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko thinks David Haye is scared to take a chance by signing a contract for a unification bout. Haye, the WBA champion, was challenged by Klitschko on Monday. Klitschko wants to set all of his other possibilities aside to get Haye in the ring but he thinks the British fighter is running scared.

"I understand he's scared, but just get yourself together, and maybe you'll get a lucky punch or whatever,'' Klitschko said to the AP. "I think he's frightened and he won't be willing to take the chance, but it's important for me to say that nothing is in the way. There are no other fights. There will be enough money for everybody. He just has to do what he says he will.''

Klitschko doesn't hide his dislike for Haye, who talked a lot of trash about Wladimir over the last twelve months. The two were set to meet last June and Haye withdrew with a back injury. Klitschko thinks the back injury was bogus.

"I just don't like anything about the guy,'' Klitschko said. "How he talks, how he walks, anything. He's basically betraying the audience and the sport. Every division deserves a true champion, and how can he claim to be a champion if he won't fight me?''

"It's obvious now that his back injury was just garbage, and he's a liar. I want to be active, so I won't rely on the liar to fight me next. But when only one person talks, people will start to believe things that person tells them. I just decided I need to get over my conservative style of handling things. I need to make it as straight as possible: David 'The Loser' Haye won't fight me.''

[QUOTE=WladIsTheChamp;9914410]Just remember you said it, if Diva never fights a Klitschko before retiring, you said it yourself, it's Diva that's ducking. "I promise to knock out both Klitschkos in 2009...." "I promise to knock out both Klitschkos in 2010...." "I…
