World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will enter the ring against old-time foe David Haye on July 2 for a battle to be hosted by Hamburg, Germany. The Wladimir Klitschko vs David Haye battle will be telecasted live by HBO in USA. Some of the other partners are Sky Box Office in the UK and RTL in Germany.
Interestingly, the venue can host up to 55k people, and that will mean that the support for either boxer will be huge. And given the tremendous anticipation associated with this Wladimir Klitschko versus David Haye fight, one can expect the venue to be packed to the rafters.
Earlier, the two were expected to fight in 2009, but Haye cited injury as a reason to opt out of the fight. However, things look good for this battle now that everything seemed to have worked just fine.
Haye has already signalled his intentions by rejecting a handshake with Klitschko and it will be interesting to see whether he can keep up with that facade in the boxing ring as well. Haye said that he was going to look forward to making his opposition uncomfortable in his bid to win the fight against Klitschko.
