IMO, Haye has done nothing at Heavyweight for people to think he can beat Wlad.......IMO, Wlad is too intelligent and Haye has a leaky defense.....
Idealy, Haye should have fought Adamek, Ibragimov, Povetkin.....had he beaten all of these...it would have been a super fight...right now I see it as more of a hype fight.....
Plus we will never know how good Haye was at HW, as he is retiring....
I agree totally, but I guess we will find out what Haye is made of.....this is a massive step up from the comp he has faced.
I wish Haye did fight the fighters you mentioned, if he would he would be looked at like a sort of HW phenom going in against the champ instead of a guy with some ability who could possibly check Wlad's not so iron chin and pull of an upset.
