Tyson-basher Williams picks Haye

Danny Williams, who shocked the world by knocking out Mike Tyson in Louisville last month, has picked former spar-mate David Haye to wrest the IBO cruiserweight title from champion Carl Thompson at Wembley Arena on September 10.

Heavyweight Williams knows a thing or two about heavy-hitters and believes that Haye has the firepower and skill to come out on top in the battle of big punchers.

Williams said:

"I think David will box superbly, completely outbox Carl and then stop him and win the title in four rounds."

"I've got a lot of respect for Carl, but I've sparred with David for years and he hits like a heavyweight"

"There won't be more than a handful of cruiserweights in the world who can take his power for long."

"I think David will have a scare along the way, but he'll win in four rounds."
