When he got his fight against Wladimir, he scuttled around the ring by the ropes like a ****roach all night. When he finally landed a hard punch, he found out he wasn't as big a puncher as he is in his daydreams. The average margin the judges had Wladimir winning by was 8 rounds (no, that isn't 8 rounds to 4; it's 10 rounds to 2!) - more than the margin Wlad had in his points victory over Sultan Ibragimov.
Haye would beat Vitali at this stage of his career, but then so would half the division. It would be a shame for him to give the pipsqueak the honour of a victory over him after he tried to undermine Wlad's victory with his sore-pinky-on-the-rear-foot-which-had-been-anaesthetised-before-the-fight excuse.
