Haye will have to be careful he doesn't pay for his movement aswell, because if he gets tired, his reflexes will slow down, which is why I think Ruiz was able to tag him late in their fight, he will also become a more stationary if he tires, so whilst the movement is a good idea, he better make sure he's moving with a purpose.
Haye will have to get off first, cause Wlad will take away his counter punching strategy imo. Wlad wont fall into mid range, he will keep it long, and maintain that safe distance from behind the stick, which is the best way to apply pressure against Haye imo. As you know, you have to draw someone into mid range in order to counter effectively.
I felt Ruiz paid the price for pressuring him, but not maintaining that safe distance from behind the stick, which is disastrous against a big puncher.
I always felt DLH was a dangerous fighter up the middle if you went straight at him(Chavez), but I remember when Genaro Hernandez fought him, he applied pressure, but maintained that safe distance from behind the stick, and that gave DLH problems imo.
He deffo better keep his hands up, cause if Wlad starts landing with the jab easily, he will zero in with the right imo.
I also think whilst Wlad is tentative, that might be a spot for Haye to get off first on him with his speed, particularly if Wlad lulls himself to sleep stalking Haye.
Yeah, I also think that Wlad is pretty good at cutting the ring down. If you watch the Eliseo Castill fight, he does an excellent job of cutting off the exits.
I think if Wlad cuts the ring down adequately, but keeps it long, he could manoeuvre Haye into vulnerable places in the ring, and if he's able to connect with that jab in this situations, I dont think the right hand will be far behind.
Speaking about Haye, I was thinking his best shot to get inside, might be if he uses the movement to offset Wlad, then when Wlad is in transition from being reset, Haye could shoot in with his attacks, but the key might be, that he follows up his attacks, as though to help him close the distance and work his way inside, cause I think Wlad will go straight back before he moves off in circle, so if Haye can follow up and eventually land himself infront of Wlad, he might be able to disorganize Wlad, and Wlad is prone to being disorganized imo, that said, that is a very dangerous game plan if dont choose the right times to attack.
I think given how much Haye drops his hands, the way he thinks its smart to lean his head foward so he can counter over the top with his right hand, that he could eating the jab quite a bit. Anyone who knows Boxing knows you cant exclusively rely on slipping the jab to avoid it, that you also need to block and parry it.
