Not many if any Hw's have Hayes natural reflexes, you look at all the guys Hayes size and shorter are all very stiff and fight in straight lines. The chances of Wlad does what Haye did if he were a few inches smaller are very slim, realistically he would always be a defensive fighter as opposed to a open freestyle boxer. For a guy to fight the way Haye does, you have to have a good chin and he clearly does.
Hayes chin is decent, he has only suffered one TKO and that had more to do with him making an amateur mistake and tiring himself out until he could not stand up anymore
Eastern europeans are very strong fighters, however they are stiff no matter what size they come in. Just dont see Wlad being this prince naz/haye type reflexes boxer
