While that is all true. I'd also say it may have been helped by Valuev's tiredness, he had been hit by clean, hard shots before that and taken them fine. Although, I was suprised to see in the replay that the shot hardly even landed, and did that to him...
If Haye lands a full powered shot, cleanly, he'd hurt anyone in the Heavyweight division, IMO.
