Brutal execution

Legacy Phuket Gazette

PHUKET: “This is going to be the most brutal execution of a boxer that you’ve seen for many, many years. Don’t go to the hospital with your brother. Make sure you’re there, don’t go with the ambulance.”

WBA Heavyweight Boxing Champion David Haye, 30, from Great Britain voiced and illustrated his intentions towards the Klitschko brothers (Wladimir, 35, – IBF & WBO Champion and Vitali, 39, – WBC Champion) this week by wearing a t-shirt depicting the brothers being decapitated by a Haye (maker) punch and demanded Vitali stay at the fight once he has dispatched his brother to the emergency room.

The cocky Brit will fight Wladimir on Saturday night in Hamburg, Germany, for the heavyweight title, but already has his eyes set on a Klitschko double-KO.

Haye is favourite for the win, but gives away 8cm in height, 13kg in weight and 7cm in reach. He is 5 years younger than his Ukrainian opponent and has a better record – 25 wins from 26 fights (23 KO). Wladimir’s fight record reads – 55 wins from 58 fights (49 KO).
