You can’t say heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko doesn’t have a sense of humor.
He was relatively quiet in comparison to challenger David Haye during the lead-up to their title bout last Saturday. Haye, the Brit who once wore a shirt bearing an image of him standing over Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko’s decapitated bodies holding their heads, tried to antagonize Klitschko by refusing to shake his hand at press conferences, calling him a control freak and by releasing an iPhone game that allowed players to knock Klitschko’s head off.
Klitschko did most of his talking in the ring, winning a unanimous decision in a fight that didn’t ever appear to be a contest. Afterward Haye blamed a broken pinky toe for affecting his ability to punch with power.
Well, almost a week after the fight, Klitschko has finally gotten into the taunting spirit. Of course, he still isn’t saying anything.
Instead, Klitschko released a silent video summary of the fight via his YouTube channel, letting pictures do the talking for him.
