“Yes, he was late for half and hour today, we’ve all been waiting for you princess, you act like a champ here…” said Wladimir Klitschko to David Haye during the conference. Wlad knows sarcasm? Apparently he is not too bad at it.
Wlad stated that despite the fact that he respects Haye as a fighter, he doesn’t as a person. Since Wlad is a PhD., he promised David a “reality rehab” on July 2 in Germany. This according to Wlad, will make David a better person, and will make him come to his appointments on time from then on.
He ended his speech with a long lecture about hand shaking, asking Haye why he doesn’t want to shake the champion’s hand. He is definitely getting better at selling his fights!
All in all, this is by far the best Wladimir Klitschko press conference I have seen up to this day. Both fighters are ready, genuinely don’t like each other, and both did a great job entertaining the viewers and the press with their clever and aggressive trash talking. Did Wlad talks like a mix of James Toney and Bernard Hopkins: aggressive and wise at the same time!
