I am not hating haye, quite contrary I actually like him for his boxing skills, and having watched one episodes of 'get me out of here...' I don't think he is bad guy either..., but he doesn't give a crap for boxing.
Just skill wise I have a great respect for him, actually I think he is at least at the same level as Tua who fought Lennox.. but again all of this is totally irrelevant when he DOESN'T WANT to fight, he DOESN'T WANT to prove himself. Why the hell is he retiring in 31?! Why doesn't he beat other guys?! Why?! I think he is well capable of doing so, but I can't give him credit for something he will not do...
He MIGHT be better than price/tyson now (I don't know) but between beating very good fighter or next HW champion (who might be worse at the moment) I would always choose the later. I am not sure will Price or Tyson be next champions but I KNOW haye WON'T!
That's why only NONSENSE here is Haye's behavior. As long it's like that he is IRRELEVANT!
