Klitschko Destroys Heavy Bag at Florida Gym in Preperation for David Haye

The Heavyweight Factory boxing gym in Hollywood Florida received a surprise visitor this afternoon when WBO, IBF, IBO and Ring magazine world heavyweight champion Wladimir “Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) stopped in for some “light” conditioning. Klitschko mercilessly assaulted one of the gym’s heavy bags for almost 20 straight rounds until the hapless sack tore off the iron cross beam securing it. No worries for Klitschko as he nonchalantly stepped to his right and continued pounding the next bag in line.

The Ukrainian Klitschko plans the same fate for his next opponent: the ever-voluble WBA world champion David “Hayemaker” Haye (25-1, 23 KOs) when and if they square off as scheduled in Germany on July 2nd. Haye has backed out of scheduled fights against Wladimir and his older brother, WBC World champion Vitali (42-2, 39 KOs). Wladimir admits he will believe the fight is on when Haye is: “standing across from me in the opposite corner.”

For those who’ve never had the opportunity to see the 35-year old Klitschko in the flesh, his monumental stature is surprising. The champion towers at almost six feet seven inches tall of what appears to be pure muscle. His massive back coiled and arched as he worked the bags in the steaming gym under the South Florida heat. Fellow fighters from multiple weight divisions looked on in awe as the champion did his thing. He entered the gym by himself. No entourage, no fanfare, no problem.

That a guy his size can hit a heavy bag for over an hour without a break is pretty fu<ing amazing.

I'm not comparing the two at all, I'm actually a Klitschko fan who wants him to beat Haye.

I just remember Gonzaga beating the heavybag to a pulp (destroying it/ripping it) and UFC countdown focusing on it like we were all supposed to amazed by it.

But this is different anyway. Smashing a heavybag for 20 straight rounds is rather impressive.

I hope Wladdy wipes the floor with Haye.
