4) HBO shoving him down the fans' throat? He fought pretty good comp, and while not always entertaining, I don't recall him stinking out the joint against anyone. HBO shoved waaay worse fighters down our throat (Berto, anyone?).
Where have you been? This forum hates David haye and you can't blame them. Rios also gets alot of hate around here. And you call a shot to pieces Arce good competition? That fight was shoved down people's throats to try and make him look good
