Wlad was ULTRA defensive in that fight, he landed one shot, grabbed or shot backwards to avoid any hurt
why? because he knew haye was very dangerous and was a good boxer, he played it incredibly safe
as I said before, anyone can get lucky with one shot at heavyweight, what happened to wlad happened to lewis, a stupid mistake that guys like peter made wlad pay
in terms of quality, haye has been wlads toughest fighter, I know you hate him but think of it subjectively mate
fury is a good heavyweight, he will give wlad a test, I promise you that. He can win because he has huge power but most likely wlad will win a decision
Just want to add, wlad fought the perfect fight vs Haye, if he was not ultra defensive, he could have very well and in my opinion would have been knocked out. But he fought smart, used his advantages, hit and then got in a very safe position, if haye got in, he grabbed him.
