Wearing a t-shirt depicting a victorious picture of himself with Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko laying headless on the ring, David Haye waged war on the Klitschko brothers.

Wladimir Klitschko, visibly irked by Haye's cockiness responded, "I am going to give him a lesson in good behaviour."

I think Haye will not benefit from his bravado. The more he plays mind games with the Wlad, the more Wlad gets motivated to destroy the former Cruiserweight champion.

Wlad will not get carried away with his emotion but he will be pumped up to train hard for this match. Wladimir Klitschko is a well-schooled and disciplined fighter. He fights real smart.

I also think that it isn't smart to overlook Wlad as David Haye is already expecting to overcome Wlad and wants to challenge Vitali right away, even claiming that he can destroy both of them in one night. Too much confidence can kill.

I am not saying that Haye is not a talented fighter. He is. It's just that he was never really tested at Heavyweight. He keeps on mouthing off that Wlad only faced over-the-hill contenders and hasn't faced anyone like him. I say that Wlad has the more impressive resume between the two.

I don't see this fight going the distance. I'm predicting Wlad will knockout Haye out earlier than he predicted. Wlad predicted a 12th round knockout as he plans on punishing Haye, but I don't think Haye will last that long.

I could be wrong and Haye would surprise us, but I'm going with my prediction. Wlad will play teacher as he teaches David Haye a boxing lesson and some lessons in manners.
