Weather Could Be Issue For Klitschko Haye Fight Tonight

There is a strong storm in Hamburg Germany.  The ring is under protection but the surrounding stadium is not.  The forecast says upwards of a 1/2 inch of rain and wind 20-30 mph. The winds could carry the rain onto the canvas of the ring and effect the performance.   As of now the ring is dry.  Jim Lampley has said,'Rain is steady and forecast says no letup. German boxing board makes final decision.'  Dan Rafael said that the rain issue was discussed at Friday rules meeting. IF fight had to be called for weather before 4th round ended it would be a no contest.  So far they held 2 undercard bouts in Germany without issue. A Haye rep went into the ring to check it and said no issues.

Stay tuned for more information...
