Haye: After I Beat Wladimir, Steward Said He'd Train Me!

Mischievous David Haye has fanned the flames ahead of Saturday's big fight by claiming Wladimir Klitschko's coach Emanuel Steward had told him he would "love" to help him beat his own fighter's brother, Vitali.

WBA heavyweight champion Haye claims Steward has so little faith in Wladimir he is already planning ahead and claimed the American legend - who is indeed an admirer of the Briton - wants to help him beat the older Klitschko later this year.

Steward guided another Englishman, Lennox Lewis, to victory over Vitali in 2003 and Haye would ideally like to beat both brothers before retiring in October.

Haye, who hopes to add Wladimir's IBF and WBO belts to his own title on Saturday, bumped into the Kronk trainer in Miami recently and said: "Manny and I got on really well.

"I have a lot of respect for what he has done in the sport. He seemed to be a massive fan of my own work, too, which was a nice bonus.

"Manny even said he'd love to train me after I've bashed up Wladimir, his own fighter, on July 2.

"He reckoned that if we joined forces I would be in prime position to take down Vitali later in the year.

"He was deadly serious about it, too. Of course, as much as I admire Manny, I feel I already have the best coach in world boxing in Adam Booth, but it was nice to receive a compliment from someone so experienced.

"It's also good to know he has as little faith in Wladimir Klitschko as I do."

[QUOTE=ChopperRead;10761596]Even though I don't like Haye, I have to admit this was well-played, as whether Manny schemed with Haye about beating Vitali or not, it sounds a lot like something Manny would do. Everybody knows Manny is two-faced. Doesn't mean…

[QUOTE=ChopperRead;10761506][I]This allegation has more of an air of legitimacy than some of Haye’s other claims, because Steward has been very lavish with his praise of Haye in the past. Also, there may not be any love lost between Steward and…
