Is he capable to compete anymore I don't know - I think he himself knows the best. So that's why I say I am NOT AGAINST he fights Haye if he feels his body can cope, but also I don't mind if he chooses to retire.
And I as a boxing fan don't get absolutely anything from Haye (well I often get a lot of BS) - he didn't do much in HW and I think he could. Why not continue to fight. He feels he will get exposed...?
Dude, get real. Some Klitschko fans on here claimed Vitali was in his prime last year, after blowing away Adamek.
You can't compare Vitali-Lewis to Vitali-Haye, in my opinion. They're not unknown quantities and the fight, if it happens, sure as hell won't be on two-weeks notice.
I still think Vitali, despite his apparent decline, beats Haye either by wide UD or brutal KO.
