Ring Magazine, IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight king “Dr. Steelhammer” Wladimir Klitschko earlier today mocked the legitimacy of the July 14 bout pitting David “The Hayemaker” Haye against fellow English countryman Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora as a “freak show.”
Chisora (15-3, 10 KOs) was suspended indefinitely in March by the WBC because of his string of barbaric actions and the briefly-retired Haye (25-2, 23 KOs) does not possess a British Boxing Board of Control license.
Hence, the fight has been sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and will occur at the Boleyn Ground in West Ham, London.
“It is a freak show under freak rules,” said the younger Klitschko, 36, who has triumphed in 14 consecutive bouts since being TKO’d by Lamon Brewster in April 2004. “It is a spit in the face of the British Boxing Board of Control.”
“Dr. Steelhammer,” a mammoth Ukrainian who hasn’t been overcome since the end of George W. Bush’s first term, shellacked the obnoxious, and fraudulent, Haye to earn a unanimous decision victory last July and add the WBA crown to his collection of belts.
Klitschko (57-3, 50 KOs) expressed utter disgust that “Del Boy” managed to finagle a license to legally brawl Haye this summer.
“To get a license for this man [Chisora] is disgraceful for the sport. How can you have such an event featuring a man who has shown his behavior to the world, especially considering what he did at the press conference [in Munich], where he threatened Haye? It’s something that isn’t good for the fans and the sport.”
Klitschko is a tremendous prizefighter, and an extremely intelligent man, who should realize that boxing’s the seediest of all sports.
Therefore, it’s truly surprising that Wladimir Klitschko would ever expect anything different or “good for the fans and the sport.”by
