Team Klitschko Rip Haye-Chisora: Disgrace, Freak Show

Wladimir Klitschko's manager Bernd Boente has effectively dismissed the chances of David Haye or Dereck Chisora forcing world title rematches after their controversial heavyweight fight in July, a fight which the Ukrainian has dismissed as a "freak show".

Haye and Chisora will face off at West Ham's Upton Park on July 14 despite neither of them currently holding British boxing licences, after the Luxembourg Boxing Federation agreed to sanction the bout.

Both Haye and Chisora have lost to the Klitschko brothers in the past and expressed their desire for a second chance - but Boente appears keen for the Ukrainian pair to wipe their hands of the Britons.

Responding to news of the showdown, Boente told BBC Radio Five Live: "They both lost to the Klitschkos. They are on the second level. We could [not] care less."

Meanwhile Wladimir, who eased past Haye in July last year and was then spat at by Chisora prior to the Finchley man's failed attempt to dethrone his brother Vitali in February, said: "It is a freak show under freak rules. It is a spit in the face of the British Boxing Board of Control.

"To get a licence for this man [Chisora] is disgraceful for the sport. How can you have such an event featuring a man who has shown his behaviour to the world, especially considering what he did at the press conference, where he threatened Haye? It's something that isn't good for the fans and the sport."

It is a freak show and the fight is gonna be disappointing but still more entertaining than most HW fights we've seen in recent years, except Huck/Povetkin.

Having heard Wlad's interview on the BBC, you can't really argue with what he's saying in principle But its still a fight people want to see so....
