Haye hits out at Klitsch demands Wozniacki thrashed

BOXING: David Haye says Wladimir Klitschko will have to lower his demands if the two are to fight.

Negotiations over staging an eagerly awaited heavyweight world title unification showdown stalled over a disagreement on the division of TV money.

Instead, Haye faces Audley Harrison next month while Klitschko clashes with Dereck Chisora four weeks later with the credibility of both challengers in question.

But Haye, who was branded a "coward" and "clown" by Klitschko last week, is unwilling to soften his stance.

"If he comes to the table and talks sense then it can happen. If he doesn't, he can keep fighting the Chisoras of the world. Everyone wants it," said Haye.



Henson in at Sarries

RUGBY: Saracens are set to unveil Wales star Gavin Henson as their latest recruit after the Ospreys "reluctantly agreed" to release him from his contract.

The Welshman has not played for 18 months and he is currently appearing on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing series, which could last until Christmas.

His arrival would give the club fly-half cover after injured No10 Derick Hougaard suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.



Wozniacki thrashed

TENNIS: Samantha Stosur stunned world number one Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-3 at the WTA Championships in Qatar, but one more win will secure the year-ending No1 ranking for the Dane.

NBA: Cleveland 95 Boston 87, New Jersey 101 Detroit 98, Philadelphia 87 Miami 97, Toronto 93 NY Knicks 98, New Orleans 95 Milwaukee 91, Minnesota 116 Sacramento 117, Oklahoma City 106 Chicago 95, Memphis 104 Atlanta 119, Dallas 101 Charlotte 86, Denver 110 Utah 88, San Antonio 122 Indiana 109, Golden State 132 Houston 128, LA Clippers 88 Portland 98.
