Muhammad Ali's former trainer helps David Haye

6:14 pm on 23 April 2011

Britain's heavyweight WBA champion David Haye has been getting some tips from Muhammad Ali's former trainer ahead of his unification bout with Wladimir Klitschko in July in Germany.

The London fighter has been training in Miami's famed Fifth Street Gym, where Angelo Dundee trained Ali, and he says the veteran cornerman has given him welcome words of wisdom and tactical advice.

Haye will take on Ukrainian Klitschko, the WBO, IBO and IBF champion, in Hamburg's football arena in a long-awaited showdown.

The 30-year-old Englishman believes his speed and power will bring him victory, and that Klitschko would not have had to encounter his kind of speed before.
