Boxing legend tips David Haye for greatness

April 26th, 2011 by James Barnes

Legendary boxing trainer Angelo Dundee has tipped David Haye to see off Wladimir Klitschko on his way to achieving greatness.

Dundee, who also trained Muhammed Ali, has been watching Haye since he began training in the Fifth Street Gym in Miami.

Despite approaching 90, Dundee still keeps tabs on his gym’s boxers. He admitted that Haye has caught his eye.

“I watched him and he was training in my Fifth Street Gym,” Dundee told the BBC.

“I was pleased – I felt like he belonged right to that gym. He’s an interesting human being. It was my first time being in person with the kid. I’m impressed because I like the way he handles himself and I like the people around him. There’s much more than meets the eye.”

David Haye v Wladimir Klitschko tickets are available now.
