IBF AND WBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko has warned David Haye he will have the last laugh as he shrugged off his opponent’s latest “childish” publicity stunt.
Haye has continually sought to goad his opponent (right) in the build-up to Saturday’s heavyweight unification bout.
Yesterday the Londoner tweeted a link to a film featuring an Adolf Hitler character that has mock subtitles referring to preparations for Saturday’s fight. “It’s childish,” said Klitschko. “I have to call it what it is. It’s childish. I can’t even take it seriously. It’s not even funny any more.
“It’s serious business, it hurts, it won’t be funny for David Haye. There is an English saying: ‘He who laughs last, laughs loudest’.”
Haye, meanwhile, believes a victory for him would represent a shot in the arm for the glamour division of the sport. He said: “America’s message is ‘get Wladimir out of this division because he’s killing it’.”
