So what does haye bring to the table that actually bucks the trend of Vitali's "nobodies" when you remove his mouth out of the equation? Simply put nothing. Haye should have put in a few good wins after Wladamir basically shut him out to actually make himself a "somebody".
However, I do think Vitali should call his bluff and say OK I will fight you, but only give him a flat rate purse or maybe get 20%. We will see what Haye's motivation is then. We will see if he bites.
Why would Haye settle for 20% when he will easily be bringing in half the revenue? The fight should be made because its the most interesting one to be made at heavy considering both are contenders and have recently beat a common opponent. Make it a 60/40 split in Vits favor with the PPV being split evenly only because Vittles has a paper title many seem to think has value even though he isn't the champion. Its fair, the fight gets made and the public gets what it wants.
