The press conferences and the trash talking has been taking place for months and now we are close to one of the biggest heavyweight contests of the past decade.
David Haye has got the fight he wanted and the Brit puts his WBA heavyweight belt on the line when he travels to Hamburg to take on Wladimir Klitschko in front of 57,000 people.
Despite some impressive performances over the past few years, the bookmakers still have him as the outsider to win this fight and there will be some big gambles on Haye at odds of 6/4 (Betfred). This is despite the British fighter believing that trainer Adam Booth has executed the perfect gameplan to beat his Ukrainian opponent.
Klitschko is undeniably an impressive boxer who is adored in Germany which is the reason why the fight is taking place in this country. The IBF and WBO champion clearly has more to lose from this reunification fight although Betfred (£50 free bet) have odds of 8/13 that he claims victory against someone that Klitschko claims ‘talks too much’.
Haye claims that he is going to knock Wladimir Klitschko out and it’s a belief shared by many other fighters including Joe Calzaghe. William Hill – £25 free betting offer 7/4 about the Brit claiming victory either through a knockout or technical knockout.
Naturally, round betting is available for this fight and you can back Haye to win in Round Three at odds of 20/1 (William Hill), which is the same round that he achieved victory against Audley Harrison.
