Booth: ‘Chisora and Mormeck no challenge for Klitschkos’
David Haye’s trainer Adam Booth dismissed Dereck Chisora’s chances against Vitali Klitschko next month as he criticised the Ukrainian brothers for their opponent choices throughout their reign as heavyweight kings.
Booth, who trained Haye to a humiliating one-sided points loss against Wladimir Klitschko, had hoped to secure a comeback fight for his charge against Vitali before negotiations broke down recently.
And the boxing trainer dubbed the 'Dark Lord’ by close friends and associates was quick to lambast the Klitschkos for what he saw as taking on lesser opponents.
‘Vitali will not struggle against Chisora,' Booth told the Daily Mail. '[Jean-Marc] Mormeck isn't much of a challenge for Wladimir either. David knocked him out in seven rounds when he was a blown up light-heavyweight moving in to cruiserweight.
'He was past his prime then. Now he is a blown up light-heavyweight who is a few years past his prime. If they are happy fighting people like that then good luck to them.
'These guys [the Klitschkos] are three stone heavier and five inches taller than their opponents and they expect to be lauded as all time greats, but I don't buy it.
'Any fighter who fought someone who was three stone lighter and fives inches smaller, and they didn't deal with them easily would be kicking themselves. They would be disgusted with themselves. They wouldn't be lauding themselves.'
