Boxing: Anger over Klitschko title 'upgrade'

Sport on TV: Haye sets out to be a Paxman who really packs a punch

Let's get ready to grumble. What a relief it was to get the Haye-Klitschko dust-up out of the way. Or at least all the pre-fight foul-mouthing by the big bad Brit, anyway. David Haye is one step closer to his real ambition in life, to be a Hollywood lightweight, and the rest of us can look forward to him only getting a couple of lines as the new Vinny Jones of the silver screen rather than enduring endless torrents of unpleasant nonsense.
