You could take any two champions in any division and the story would be the same, whether they're brothers or not. In theory Haye should perform a lot differently against Vitali than he did against Wladimir, at this stage of his career.

Vitali won't perform exactly the same against Haye as Wladimir did, only someone who's very new to boxing might assume that, purely because they're brothers. The reality is they have very different styles. Vitali might do better or worse, I'm not saying Haye definitely wins, he might even get KO'd by Vitali, but the fight should be more competitive while it lasts and it should be a totally different fight to the Wladimir fight taking into consideration the only important factor - styles - and ignoring the completely irrelevant factor - siblings.
Unlikely it will be significantly more exciting than Wlad-Haye. Haye will fight the same way he fought Wlad and Valuev. He will use his speed to run around the ring trying to force Vitali to come closer. Then with occasional attacks he will try to find his signature power punch.

If the fight happens I am more than sure Vitali will push the action and out-throw Haye but he will miss a lot and it is quite likely he will injure himself or tired himself (at 41-42 he is much slower and his body is more fragile). On the other hand Haye will wait trying to land clear.
What was his output against Valuev?!
