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."
