Benn: Haye Should Fight On, He Can Beat Wladimir

By Edward "Eddy" Chaykovsky

In a recent interview with The Sun, British boxing legend Nigel Benn has advised countryman David Haye to continue his career beyond a planned retirement in October. Benn watched Haye's recent decision loss to Wladimir Klitschko, and felt the Hayemaker used the wrong strategy. Like many others, Benn observed Haye using the same strategy that he utilized to beat Nikolai Valuev, but Klitschko is faster and a much better boxer.

"There is no way David can retire on that performance. I am convinced he has the right tools to beat Wladimir and I just hope he can get a rematch. He must not walk away in defeat. We all know now David used the wrong tactics. It looked as if he was fighting the same fight he did against Nikolay Valuev, hitting and running but it was never going to work against a boxer who was far superior to Valuev," Benn said.

"But Haye caught Klitschko far more than any other boxer I've seen and Klitschko looked worried every time he landed. That's why I believe Dave should NOT walk away now - and why I believe he can win if there is a rematch."

Haye can improve from a loss again just like he did against Carl. But for a guy who talks about giving it up, i cant see haye having the patience for warm up fights and building himself up again.

This is clearly the case of one Brit trying to keep another Brit relevant. While anything is possible, the only way David Haye is likely to beat Wlad is is a dark alley with a baseball bat and a stun…
