Wladimir: David Haye Will Be Knockout Victim Number 50

By Mark Vester

IBO/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) is ready and eager to get in the ring with WBA rival David Haye (25-1, 23 KOs), who clash on July 2 at the Imtech Stadium in Hamburg, Germany. Since the day both fighters signed to fight, Haye has lashed out at Wladimir and vowed to end the rule of the Klitschko brothers. The British star wants to knock Wladimir out and then he wants to end the reign of older brother, and WBC champion, Vitali Klitschko.

Wladimir will not underestimate Haye's abilities but he expects to win the fight by knockout.

"I will not underestimate David Haye. He came from another weight division and he wants to establish himself at heavyweight. He got the title and that's really interesting to me and my brother because we want to unify the belts. He's quick and his record speaks for itself. He won a lot of fights by knockout. I will not underestimate the speed and the power of David Haye. I've been in the sport of boxing for fifteen years. I'm going to be close to 60 fights. I know exactly what to expect from every single opponent. I knocked 49 fighters and David Haye will be the 50th knockout on my record list and I'm looking forward to it," Klitschko said to CNN New York.
