W. Klitschko, Boente, Steward Pick Haye Over Chisora

By Ruslan Chikov

IBO/WBA/WBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is picking his former foe, David Haye (25-2, 23KOs), to defeat Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs) on July 14th in West Ham. Klitschko won a twelve round decision over Haye last July, while the champion's older brother, WBC champion Vitali Klitschko, won a decision over Chisora in February.

"I do not want to talk about this fight because I did not want to see it even take place, but I think Haye will win because he is better Chisora," Klitshko said.

The same opinion was shared by Klitschko's manager Bernd Boente.

"Chisora ​​can not win," said Bente. "Haye is more skilled, he is faster and has a strong punch."

Emanuel Steward, who trains Wladimir, is also picking Haye to win.

"David Haye is a lot more difficult than some may believe. It was easy work for Wladimir due to the physical [contrast] and his style was very suitable for us. Chisora ​​does not have the sufficient skills to stop Haye. The fight could turn out interesting, but Haye should win," Steward said.

The whole Klitshcko camp are basically saying Haye is far superior to Chisora who gave Vitali his hardest fight since his come back and they expect us to believe he isn't ducking Haye.
