If he's injured, he's injured. What is he supposed to do? Take the biggest fight of his life with only one good hand? Come on man, give the guy the benefit of the doubt. I'm pretty certain he'll get this fight rescheduled on the same terms as soon as he's fit.
Exactly. I don't understand why some people here are SOOO quick to call anyone that does something they find disagreeable a "pussy" when at the time all the facts aren't known. I will say this though, had this "injury" happened to Wlad, Haye would have DEFINITELY ran off the mouth of what a "pussy" Wlad is.
So I give Wlad credit for not going that route. The "Setanta" (sp?) theory is very interesting.
I saw a comment from Wlad yesterday (while I give him props in one instance, he messes it all up) that had me shaking my head. It was regarding HAYE asking for a postponement. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2009/jun/0...dimir-klitschko
Haye has asked for a postponement of "six to eight weeks" according to a source at Setanta but this was discounted by Klitschko who insisted: "He was challenging me and now he's backing out. I definitely will proceed on 20 June. I have to. That's my wish.
"I've been waiting for this David Haye for half of the year so now I have no opponent so we will look for somebody else. There is a saying, 'Dogs are barking but the caravan keeps going'."
Who does he (Wlad) think he's kidding here?? "HE's been WAITING" for HAYE for half this year but his mgmt group are the ones that inserted some of the most ridiculous provisions in a contract I've ever seen but "HE" wanted the fight?? On the same token, it's obvious this fight is bigger than any of the other HEAVYweights so whats wrong with a small delay??
Summary.. Guy who's hurt asks for a delay.
Uninjured guy doesn't want to grant the "hurt" guy an extension or postponement but wants to fight someone else.
Based on that, who's the real "pussy" here??
I see theres another update on my RSS feed, so hopefully Wlad ('s people) have accepted an extension.
