Its fair, the fight gets made and the public gets what it wants.
Yes it is an interesting fight. The question though is does Haye deserve it? There are guys in the division putting in time and effort and actually taking risks by fighting. Haye sits back and believes he deserves a free ride. Popular or not, it does not cut it.
So if he wants to leapfrog everyone else by mouthing off to the press, well he should be forced to make a concession IMO. We will see how badly he himself wants to win a championship, or just want another big payday.
