Haye leans towards Wawrzyk as Charr laughs off easy pick
Former world heavyweight champion David Haye is looking increasingly likely to plump for unkown quantity Andrej Wawrzyk for his eagerly awaited comeback on June 29, to the dismay of ex-WBC title challenger Manuel Charr.
The 32 year-old, who is hopeful of a world title bout with either Klitschko brother within the next twelve months, is looking towards a battle with the 27-0 Pole as Charr fumes at the prospect of missing out on a Manchester clash with the ‘Hayemaker’ in the summer.
“Haye is simply a coward,” stated Charr. “I would KO Wawrzyk early and I know he is taking an easy fight. I would give him a tough fight, but he doesn’t want to risk it.
“I will now make sure I force him to fight me for the mandatory spot in the autumn, but I am just sorry that the fans will miss a great fight as I would have certainly KO’d Haye.”
Charr, 28, may now have to be content with playing the waiting game as a blacklash from fans could be on the cards for Haye due to the nature of his proposed choice for what will be his first bout in almost a year.
A clash with Charr would definitely make more sense than Wawrzyk at the moment as Haye plots a move towards another world title chance, and with Wladimir or Vitali at the forefront of the Londoner’s mind, another win must be successfully registered in the meantime – which could explain the possible choice of opponent.
