James DeGale: Wladimir Klitschko Will Knock Haye Out

By Chris LaBate

It's no surprise that British super middleweight champion James DeGale is backing WBO/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko to stop WBA king David Haye in Hamburg on July 2. Haye promotes DeGale's rival and May 21st opponent, George Groves. In the last few weeks, there have been some heated words going back and forth between Haye and DeGale, including Haye questioning DeGale's worth as a fighter.

"It's great for boxing, and for British boxing, the best two heavyweights in the world colliding, but in Hamburg against one of the Klitschkos it's a difficult task ahead," DeGale told BBC Sport. "Obviously I'd like David Haye to go on and unify the division and beat him but I see Klitschko knocking him out late on. I think he's just too athletic, too big and hits far too hard."
