Emanuel Steward, trainer of WBO/IBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, expects WBA champion David Haye to be very dangerous in the early rounds of their July 2 showdown in Hamburg, Germany. During the pre-fight verbal back and forth, Steward didn't seem to be too concernced with Haye's talents, but he does seem concernced with Haye's speed and power in the early portion of the fight. He credits Haye with being the best speed/power boxer that Klitschko has ever been up against in his entire career.

"David Haye has a different type of energy to what Wladimir has been up against recently. David has the mindset, the arrogance of a champion. Wladimir has not had to experience that in a long time," Steward told Sky Sports News. "David's explosive punching power and speed is the best Wladimir will have fought in his career. It's going to be very dangerous. I think Wladimir will systematically win, but we have to be wary of some haymakers early in the fight. I think in this fight emotions will come into it, which will make Wladimir a lot more aggressive than he usually is."
