If the klitschko's were shorter, then their attributes would all be balanced in a very different way. With disadvantages in one area, comes advantages in another. It is absolutely undeniable that the Klitschko's have displayed a much smarter style of boxing. They are FAR from one dimensional - that comment alone proves you don't know anything about anything.

In the end, this thread is trivial. There is not much point in discussing a fantasy world where Haye and Wlad were in their primes and the exact same size with the exact same attributes or what ever. It'd come down to ring smarts, and Wladimir has way more of that.

In the real world, Wladimir and Haye have already fought prime-for-prime. Haye promised to come out and deliver an earth shattering performance, where he moves, gives angles, and displays ferociousness like never seen before etc. The reality of the situation is that Wladimir and Haye have already fought, and Wladimir made your boy Haye look like an idiot in a boring ass fight. Another reality is that Wladimir is currently in the midst of a historic title reign. Despite your like or dislike of him, very few champs have strung together so many title defenses in a row. Haye couldn't have done it, with or without additional height.
Some good points made
