Emanuel Steward Reveals David Haye's Big Flaw, Gifts

By Luke Furman

Emanuel Steward, the trainer of WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, discussed the flaws and strengths of David Haye, who Wladimir easily decisioned over twelve rounds last Saturday in Hamburg, Germany. According to Steward, Haye's balance is the British boxer's biggest weakness. After reviewing tapes, Steward noticed that Haye is always off-balance when he throws punches - especially his big right hand.

Steward gave Haye a lot of credit for his head movement and upper body coordination. Haye's head movement actually surprised Steward and made it very difficult for Wladimir to land clean punches.

"David Haye has great coordination and upper body movement but we always knew that his biggest weakness is that he always throws his right hand and gets out of balance. We tried to take the space away from him and cut off the ring, and throw a lot of feints with the jab without jabbing and let him throw his punches and get off balance," Steward said.

"Every time he throws his punches he gets off-balance. If you let him throw two punches he gets off-balance. His reflexes were good enough where we couldn't take advantage of him being off-balance. He had unbelievable head movement and coordination. The strategy was simple, to cut off the ring and let him get out of balance. Wladimir has much better footwork than people think. David surprised us with his great head movement, which made it difficult to hit him effectively."
