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 don't think the Harrison fight can be considered as having any bearing on this - the gulf in class there was enormous and it was obvious that Harrison was a long way short of fitness and a long way out of his depth.

Valuev is a better comparison, as Haye was giving away an awful lot in weight and reach, and his challenge there was to overcome the opponent by being the better boxer. I think he is a much better boxer than Valuev and thats why he got the win in that fight.

However I think both Klitschkos are better technical boxers than Haye. Not that Haye isn't a good boxer, and I would love to see him win - but I don't think he's in the same league as Klitschko...

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...
Oh, have you ever attented a school in Soviet Union? I did.

And I can tell you that kids and people were very rude. Everything around was aggressive, rude and threatening

But I guess Haye is just trying to show off, because he realizes that he has no chances on the ring.

Interesting. Still Apples and Oranges though.

Boxers who talk too much.. always end up getting beaten. I think he will too.

Thank you for this video. Watched it till the end. Haye's behaviour is completly insulting ... I.e., there should be at least some level of respect to the opponent.

I guess, he will be beaten very hard and learned a hard lesson ...

Re: david haye vs klitchko

After the joke that was Felix Sturms majority decision win on Saturday night I think Haye can only win this fight by K.O. Poor Matt Macklin fought the fight of this life and was absolutely robbed by the judges. I don't know why he even bothered turning up. I guess Germany likes to protect their boxers as much as possible.

Nor is Arthur Abraham, Felix Sturm or Marco Huck, but that doesn't stop them being (rightly) supported in their adopted homeland. Anyhow, when was the last time either Klitschko fought in the Ukraine?

Re: david haye vs klitchko

If brother Vitali took this fight, Haye would have no chance at all. But after seeing Wladimir get knocked out by Sanders and Brewster a while back, I know it's just a matter of time before it happens again. His opponents from then until now have all been incapable of rushing him. But I think Haye has it in him, so I'm going with Haye on this one.

Wladimir has a lazy pawing jab that is susceptible to big right hands, which I think Haye can pull off. He also acts really nervous when someone rushes him. I hope Haye comes in strong and doesn't stay on the outside eating jabs all night.

Haye by KO5, big right hand over one of Wladimir's lazy jabs starts it.

Vitaliy is getting older and older. It is just a metter of time untill he looses to someone. My only hope is for Vladimir in this fight.

I guess after beating Haye both brothers have a chance to quit boxing unbeatable & having all belts in their collection.

RTL (German terrestrial channel that also comes as standard in Switzerland) will show the fight on Saturday night. No need for PPV here!

Where he lost to this guy iirc

Quote:
"In the eight or ninth round I could see in his face that he’d shot his load, and he realised that he was in a tough fight and that I wasn’t going away. He was tired and I wasn’t: I’d just walked into his punches until he punched himself out. If they hadn’t stopped it [Klitschko’s corner retired him] I would have got him. His corner allowed him to be what he is today. By not allowing him to be knocked out they could say: 'He was inexperienced.' Well, I had no training so what does inexperience have to do with anything? The bottom line is he lost the fight. I came in out of shape and not ready, he was ready and he lost"
My guess is Haye will try to follow Brewster https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5Lf_wXLPkg somewhat like this.

Will be interesting fight either way! (well lets hope it isn't anti climactic!)
