David Haye has taken to his official Twitter account to apologize for his performance in Saturday's loss to Wladimir Klitschko. After the fight, Haye blamed a broken toe suffered three weeks ago for his subpar effort. Here's what he had to say:

Thanks for everyone who supported my tonight.I Love you all.Sorry I wasn't able to produce the goods.I did my best considering circumstancesless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Broken toe 3 weeks ago, meant I could shoot right hand like I'm used to. :-( http://yfrog.com/h31v5dcjless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

No way I could pull out after so many fans paid their hard earned money. I believed I could still win. Klit fought me great, credit to him.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

The fact of the matter is that no matter whether or not his toe was broken (and it appears to be), Haye will really never live down his shoddy performance in this fight. He talked too big heading in -- for three years. Not for a couple months or a couple of press conferences, but for three years.
