And David Haye couldnt outbox Wlad if Adam Booth was the Ref and the Judge and they were fighting in his house.
116-112 is too wide for that fight. Sturm landed the more eye-catching shots but Macklin was pressing more. I thought Macklin just did enough work to get the decision..
Haye's gameplan may be/have been to use his speed to get in out of range as quickly as possible and nick the rounds. I hope he doesn't take this approach..
