Haye antics are 'great'

Lennox Lewis has defended David Haye's trash-talking in the build-up to tomorrow's fight with Wladimir Klitschko and insists the Londoner has not over-stepped the mark.

WBA heavyweight champion Haye has been criticised in some quarters for his distasteful goading of IBF/WBO champion Klitschko ahead of their clash at Hamburg's Imtech Arena, after, among other things, wearing T-shirts depicting him holding the severed heads of Klitschko and his brother Vitali.

Former undisputed heavyweight champ Lewis said: "I haven't seen him really take it too far yet. Everybody has got their level where they draw the line. If you asked 100 mothers out there they would say he took it too far but if you asked the normal punter out there they'd say 'that's great - did you see that?'"
