Steward Laughs at Vitali-Haye: David Doesn't Deserve It!

Veteran boxing trainer Emanuel Steward has laughed off rumours of a fight between David Haye and WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.

Haye suffered a crushing points defeat to Vitali's younger brother Wladimir Klitschko in July and subsequently called time on his career. Now reports are circulating that the Briton is keen for a comeback and a shot at Vitali.

Steward currently trains Wladimir, but is adamant that Haye is not deserving of a shot at Vitali.

"Oh, no. I hope this doesn't happen. David doesn't deserve it. His performance against Wladimir was terrible, appalling," he told the Daily Mail.

"Sadly, I keep hearing this fight might well go ahead because Vitali really wants to finish the job Wladimir started on Haye by knocking him out. Although from David's viewpoint you have to suppose he would only be doing it for the money."

Steward did, however, tempt Haye somewhat by saying that should the fight go ahead, that he does have a better shot against the older Vitali than he did against Wladimir.

"Vitali is bigger and hits hard but he comes straight in and doesn't have the same balance and elusive movement as Wladimir," he said.

"So David might give him a little more trouble. But that supposes he would come to fight this time, which on his performance against Wladimir is not certain."

I agree Haye doesn't deserve a title shot after getting dominated and humiliated by Wlad, but I still want to see Vitali demolish him.

he is right, he doesnt deserve it. but then again, who does? not exactly a massive pool of talent in the heavyweight division. the only fight thats even worth watching in that division is wlad vs vitali. and thats it.

i wouldn't mind watching it to be honest but i don't see it happening cause haye tends to think he's worth much more than he is, and seeing as he sure as hell won't be getting a 50/50 split this…

I want to see it. No other heavyweight will garner as much attention than David Gay. Plus I want to see Vitali knock this clown the **** out
