Lamon Brewster, the last man to defeat IBF/WBO/WBA/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, discussed Wladimir's decision win over David Haye from last Saturday in Germany. Brewster stopped Klitschko within five rounds in 2004, which Wladimir later avenged with a six round TKO win in 2007. He saw the fight as a calculated chess match.
"It was a very good fight, where two men tried to outwit each other, playing a game of chess. Although to the normal viewer, I think this fight was very boring. But they both fought well, and no one wanted to make a mistake. Both of them were very cautious in the bout, but again, the fight was good," Brewster said.
"I think [Haye] needed to change his strategy. I think he needed to be more aggressive to get Wladimir throw more punches in order to wear him down. Instead, he came out trying to box and being defensive and Wladimir it too good for that. You have to make him fight in order to wear him out."
Older brother Vitali Klitschko, the WBC champion, is interested in a possible fight with Haye in the near future. If they make the fight, Brewster expects Vitali to knock Haye out.
"If David Haye goes for that fight, he will get knocked out. Vitali is a great boxer," Brewster said.
