No sooner had David Haye lost a lopsided unanimous decision to Wladimir Klitschko in a July 2 heavyweight unification fight than the 30-year-old Briton revealed he'd suffered a broken pinkie toe in training (even tweeting a photo of the toe in question shortly after the final bell). Haye hadn't mentioned the injury in the build-up to the fight, saying he was in the best shape of his life. Responded the victorious Klitschko at the post-fight press conference: "Never say anything right now in the way of 'I had a broken toe; that's why I couldn't compete.' It's called a sore loser."
Haye's alibi is merely the latest in a long line of head-scratchers.
