Video: Wladimir Klitschko's Final Thoughts on David Haye

And I really mean "thoughts":

I can say that this is humorous. I can say that. But if you need words, here's what Klitschko told Gazeta

"The man was checked before by a medical commissioner. He was cleared and ready to fight. If you are in the ring, there are no excuses. It's called sore loser. And I warned David Haye, don't do that [discuss the toe]. If something happened to you, shut the hell up and don't say anything because it's going to hit right back to you. ... I don't really care and nobody else cares."

Klitschko is referencing the post-fight press conference when he almost pleaded with Haye to not harp on the toe injury, and said he was speaking from personal experience that you don't want to make excuses like that. Wladimir's attitude since then has been very, very dismissive. He seems truly annoyed that he ever had to bother with David Haye at all, only for Haye to go out there and lay an egg and then complain about his toe with the whole, "I'm not making any excuses, but look, here's my excuse" spiel that has become so common in boxing. And honestly, it's pretty funny. As for a rematch, I'd give that maybe a 5% chance of happening right now. Klitschko seems to want nothing to do with him again and sounds content to move on to other challengers, even if they aren't going to offer as much money as a Haye rematch still could. It's not like Wladimir is going to walk out of any of his fights poor or anything.
