Klitschko On Haye, Povetkin, Chambers, & Don King

Current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko was recently interviewed in the German newspaper “Sport den’ za dnem” and had some things to say about David Haye, Alexander Povetkin, Eddie Chambers, and the promoter Don King...

Klitschko On Choosing To Fight Chambers Over Haye & Povetkin

“There are a lot of reasons explaining why I’ll fight Chambers. Povetkin had a real chance to fight me last December. But in the end we had to look for another opponent in 4-5 weeks before the fight. Then the same story happened with David Haye. Except in that case we had even less time for the search. To tell you the truth, these two incidents left and unpleasant aftertaste. I’ve read the interview of Povetkin’s new trainer where he says that it’s too early for the Russian to step into the ring with Klitschko. All that combined embarrasses me. That is why I’ve chosen Chambers, at least his situation is clear. As for Haye, I’ve already got tired of commenting on his behavior”.

Klitschko On Why He Chose To Fight Haye

“Do you know why I chose Haye? Because he was interesting for the public. Interesting because of his shameless and provocative behavior, I can’t find other words for it. But in that way he earned himself certain fame. A lot of boxing fans wanted to see us fight. And that interest is directly connected with the financial aspects. In every bout our promotional company always wants to get two victories – sporting in the ring and financial outside of it”

Klitschko On Don King Losing His Influence

“Do I feel sorry for King? It’s like to enter the cage with a bear and to feel sorry that he is hungry."
