Matthew Malkin Is Robbed In Germany: David Haye Should Worry (Photos)

by | 27th, June 2011

DAVID Haye would have found watching Birmingham man Matthew Malkin’s defeat to local boy Felix Sturm in Germany. The German won the fight on points. He retained his WBA middleweight belt because the judges sat in a German arena in front of thousands of German fans went with the German lad who took a punding until very late in the last round when he rocked Malkin.

Haye is the British WBA heavyweight champion fighting Wladimir Klitschko, the WBO, IBF and IBO title holder, in Germany next weekend. The bout will unify the the world heavyweight title. Klitschko is the Ukrainian based in… Germany.

Does home advantage count for much? Yes. Not for the fighters. It counts for the referee and the judges…
