Wladimir vs Haye is The Likely Choice, Says Booth

By Chris LaBate

Adam Booth, David Haye’s manager and trainer, told The Daily Telegraph that he was presented with proof of Wladimir Klitschko's stomach injury - and has no doubts about the serious nature of the injury. Booth and Bernd Beonte, manager of the Klitschko brothers, are heading to New York on Tuesday to sit down with HBO and Showtime.

Haye signed a contract to fight either brother on June 25 or July 2. Boente has until the end of April to inform Team Haye as to which Klitschko is going to fight the British champion.

“I don’t doubt that Wladimir is injured. When he was injured in December [withdrawing the first time with Dereck Chisora] we were nowhere near in any talks about David fighting Wladimir. There would have been no benefit to Wladimir pulling out of that contest,” Booth said. "They have to nominate which brother will face David by the end of April. We think it’s going to be Wladimir, and they are talking like it will be him."

Oh, come on. Nobody has worse stamina than Solis. Haye is definitely lacking in that respect, but Solis is just embarrassing. And don't tell me that Haye is hard to hit, or that he has good footwork. His footwork is…

[QUOTE=Gumby McPokey;10268240] Haye doesn't have quicker hands than Solis. He doesn't hit harder than Solis. He doesn't have nearly as good footwork as Solis. He isn't nearly as accurate as Solis. He isn't as hard to hit as Solis is.…

What I'd like to know: On what do Haye fans base their unshakeable belief that Haye can beat either Klitschko? Haye has never fought a top heavyweight contender. He hasn't looked particularly impressive against the non-threats like Barrett, Valuev, and…
