Re: david haye vs klitchko

So, it's just a matter of hours until we know the results of the fight.

I want to try my luck and predict that Haye will be knocked-out by Volodymyr in 4-8th rounds with possible hospitalization after the fight.

Will see if I am right?

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Any comments?

At 12 round I thought that the fight did not yet start. It looked a little boaring, but you have to admit, that Haye was not attacking effectively, and all those fallings look really loosy.

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Yeah, at the end it looked to me as though Haye was falling into Klitchko hoping to get another point taken from Klitchko. Hat off to Klitchko for putting on a great defense and keeping Haye from getting in close.

You mean, Vladimir? C'mon, his name is simple, just Vladimir, or Volodymyr if you prefer in ukranian .
You are right: his name is Vladimir. So why don't you show some respect for him and stop calling him "Volodymyr"?

As far as I understrand the Ukrainian government introduced some Nazi law that forced people to corrupt their original Russian names into something that was considered more "Ukrainian", and so if your name was "Vladimir" you had to re-brand yourself into "Volodymyr", if you were Dmitri you had to become "Dmytro", those named Nikolai had to transform themselves into Mykola etc. I think that this is very dumb.

Any way the fight was good, although Vladimir could be a bit more aggressive. It was good to hear him at the end talking fluently in three languages - English, German and his native Russian - that shows that after so many fights his head is still undamaged, which in itself is a good achievement for a heavyweight boxer.

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Fight was poor in my view. Haye just did not perform. All mouth and no trousers.

Re: david haye vs klitchko

And no he blames his toe. Lol.

If you broke it mate then someone in your camp should have thought, "Maybe we should let this heal first."
Or they just left it for a great excuse "if" he were to lose....

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Well, I thought that the fight will be as spectacular as both brother fights against Corrie Sanders : those were brutal and breath taking.

As for Haye: he was good in defense, but not in attacks. Perhaps, he was trying to make Volodymyr's toe looks like his?

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Disappointing to have seen Haye fight like that. His defense was awesome and Ive never seen Wladimir miss so many shots in a fight. But you cant win a fight purely on defense.

You have to expect to cop a few shots from Wlad, but Haye wasnt willing to take the risk. Toe, shmoe. Your foot bone is definitely not connected to your courage bone...

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Did anybody else see that Haye had to have a brace cut from his right wrist using surgical scissors after the fight? He cancelled the last fight due to an unspecified injury; maybe he has a broken bone that won’t heal in his hand/wrist that might have been the reason that he was so defensive during the fight.

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Just read news saying that most likely the next Klitchko fight will take place in Kyiv: http://www.champion.com.ua/boxing/2011/07/7/449242/ (in ukrainian).

Google Translate might do the trick: http://translate.google.com/translat...F7%2F449242%2F

Re: david haye vs klitchko

Have you seen fight of Vitaliy vs Tomasz Adamek?



It was amazing how useless Tomasz appeared in the ring ...

After the fight Vitaliy said he would like to fight with David Haye. Interesting!
