Haye 'childish' SPORT SHORTS BOXING.

WLADIMIR Klitschko has warned David Haye he will have the last laugh as he shrugged off his opponent's latest "childish" publicity stunts.

Haye has continually sought to goad his Germany-based nemesis in the build-up to Saturday's heavyweight unification bout in Hamburg with a succession of distasteful comments and publicity stunts. Yesterday he Tweeted a link to a film featuring an Adolf Hitler character with mock subtitles referring to preparations for Saturday's fight.

The mind games continued at yesterday's public work-out when the WBA champion trained in a southpaw stance rather than his usual orthodox position and hardly threw a punch before taking a bow and leaving. Klitschko shrugged off his rival's actions. "It's childish," said the IBF/WBO champion.
