Peter is terribly unskilled for a world class boxer. Chambers, Ibragimov, and Chagaev were way too small, they couldn't even reach Wladimir's head.
What Haye brings is power, speed, explosiveness and he is just big enough to reach his chin. Stylistically Haye does pose problems for Wladimir, but Haye does fight like C lever boxer.
