Wladimir Klitschko vs. David Haye: Steward Comments on the Wet Canvas Conditions
“We hope that the fight goes on," said Emanuel Steward, who is Wladimir Klitschko's trainer. "These are bad conditions. I would never recommend anyone having a fight in these outdoors.”
“Our biggest concern is to not get behind on points early on in the fight," Steward added after admitting the wet canvas was a concern. “We have no idea of what the weather is like out there.”
Steward on Klitschko's skills:
“Wladimir has better foot movement. Wladimir’s hand speed is definitely better than people realize. Haye does not have much movement with his feet.”
Steward on Klitschko's chin:
“David Haye does have fast hands and power, but Haye’s chin is also questionable.”
The fight, which will go down at the Hamburg Imtech Arena in Hamburg, Germany, will air live on HBO at 4:45 p.m. ET. The replay will be broadcast on HBO at 9:45 p.m ET.
All of the round-by-round results and post-fight analysis will be posted here as well as on the Bleacher Report's boxing page.
