Klitschko Disagrees With Steward: Wants Late KO Win

By Ruslan Chikov

IBO/WBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49KOs) has disagreed with the recent statements that were made by his trainer Emanuel Steward. When interviewed by a British broadcast network, Steward made a prediction that his boxer will finish off David Haye (25-1, 23KOs) in four rounds. Klitschko has other plans in store for the WBA champion. He doesn't want an early knockout. He wants to punish the WBA champion for the entire fight. They will unify their titles on July 2 at the Imtech-Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

"David Haye has done a lot of talking. When we get in the ring, the talking will be over. I'm very motivated by this. I'm going to teach him a lesson over the entire twelve rounds and I will enjoy the entire process. And only at the end of the twelfth round will I grant him the knockout [loss]," Klitschko said.

Steward had much the same problem with LL vs Tyson . He wanted him to finish him and not take a chance on MT landing a lucky bomb. I think Wladi " THE IMPALER " will probaly put him on…

if he honestly extends the fight in that manner (breaking him down the the point where he's ready to go, and then letting him off the hook only to actually continue punishing him,) he's a sick mother****er haye's life will…
