Re: david haye vs klitchko

I for one absolutely can't wait for this fight. I think it will be competative and think Haye has a really good chance. Whether he has enough to beat him, I don't know. One thing is for sure though, he'll turn up in shape and ready to fight, which is more than can be said for most of Klitschko's opponents/stiffs over the last few years. The shape that Samual Peter, Eddie Chambers, Hasim Rahman, Chris Arreola et al. turned up to fight in was quite frankly a disgrace to the sport. They're supposed to be athletes! Pretty much all of them have frozen when they got in the ring and spent 12 rounds eating Klitschko's robotic jab. This is something Haye won't do; he's too intelligent a fighter for that which I think will give him more than a punchers chance.

So, it seems like Haye is really going to fight against Klitchko

Will see, will see ... Any estimations?
My heart says that Haye will win it, but my head says Klitschko will stop him in the 10-12th rounds.

If it goes the distance, Haye will lose on points (in Germany, against Klitschko, whoever the judges are, there will be some anti-Haye bias). So Haye knows he needs to stop Klitschko - not an easy task. His best chance of doing so is landing a shot while fresh - so Haye will have to chase the KO in the first 4-6 rounds.

Personally I'd love to see it happen, but the reality will probably be that Klitschko will soak up the pressure and "box clever", and then come at Haye in the final 3 rounds - either he gets the KO and wins, or it goes the distance and he gets the win on points. Either way, I just don't see Haye getting this one, sadly.

Taking into account how hard Haye was trying to make Volodymyr & Vitaliy angry, he has actually a very good chance to be beaten very strongly. (like it always happens with oponents of Klitchko brothers - they end up in hospitals).

At the same time, being able to watch interviews of brothers in native language, I have to say that they are not acting very emotional about him They say - well, he is a good speaker. So let's talk with him during the fight.

Re: david haye vs klitchko

My money is on David Haye getting his ass handed to him in a high hat, if its a fair fight, if its not then a split decision on points will give Haye a narrow (yet empty) victory, and then Klitchko will pummel him in the re-match.

Should I remind you about tolerance? I never could understand why people pay attention to these language issues.

Anyway, he speaks four languages (UA, RU, DE, EN). I would say pretty good for a boxing guy

Re: david haye vs klitchko

What channel is this likely to be on?? I know that back in the uk Sky sports is likely to show it on pay-per-view, but not sure over here whether its free or if you have to pay??

I have a swisscom subscription so have numerous local and foreign channels, not fussed what language or price (free would be nicer tho).

Any advice appreciated!

Re: david haye vs klitchko

If the Valuev fights are anything to go by, it'll be on the Teleclub which is an extra subscription charge over and above the usual Swisscom stuff.

It is going to be broadcasted by Inter in Ukraine. I guess you can watch it online on their website, i.e. http://box.inter.ua/

Re: david haye vs klitchko

IMO Haye will need to have put on more weight than when he shut down Harrison.

People criticise Haye but he managed to shake Valuev and he went the distance in that fight with an injured hand.

I'm still waiting for Pacquiao vs Mayweather

I think few people critizise him for his boxing - more for his questionable attitudes, from the trash talks to the infamous klitschko t-shirt:


In Germany the Klitschkos are extremely popular because they manage to behave like gentlemen beside the ring and extremly professional sportsmen in it...

The Germans lacking humour and supporting the uptight 'professionals' - say it ain't so!

Seriously I don't see the problem, sure he isn't your polite gentlemen victor like Lennox Lewis but nor is he a dour faced boring guy either and he certainly isn't Mike Tyson mad.... Boxing is about a certain degree of trash talking. I for one find what he says amusing - it is all part of the sport. The head game.

No, we just have a slightly different humour. In the words of Klitschko himself: "My fist fits perfectly into his big mouth. That's probably the best way to shut it"...



Trash talk is ok, but Klitschko has simply way more style than Haye... (and I am sure he will beat him)

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Style? I wouldn't call it style really.
Apples and Oranges more like.
Haye is a black British man who grew up in totally different culture to Klitschko. Those differences are what you see now - I went to school with kids who talked like Haye and not all of them could walk the walk but those that could...

I'm not slighting Klitschko for how he is responding and dealing with his own pre-fight game. I agree it is quite a funny way to respond.
I think people poo-pooing Hayes attitude lack an understanding of the differences between the two men and the countries/environments each lives in/deals with.
