Lennox Lewis: Haye needs Klitschko knock out
Lennox Lewis has told David Haye he must knock out Wladimir Klitschko in their fight at the weekend as the judges in Germany will not award him a points victory.
WBA heavyweight champion Haye faces IBF and WBO champion Klitschko in Hamburg on Saturday night and former world champion Lewis feels the judges are likely to favour the German-based Ukranian should the fight go the distance.
"He's got to knock him out. When you go into the other guy's backyard you can't hope to win on points," said Lewis. "I don't see Haye winning on points. There is no way. It's such a big uphill battle. Bring your own judges - your fists."
