Lennox Lewis: "Haye's Skill Trumps Valuev's Experience"

By Michael Cotter

Lennox Lewis conducted a ‘boxing-master class’ on Wednesday at the Real Fight Club Gym in London.  White Collar-professionals, who run or own leading companies across the U.K, donated to the Angus Lawson Memorial Trust in return for the privilege of being tutored by the former undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world.

The event was enjoyed by all and was a resounding success for the charity and all those involved.  After the training seminar, only one question was on the lips of all in attendance: how would David Haye fair in his forthcoming clash with current WBA Heavyweight kingpin Nikolai Valuev?  Lennox Lewis gave the following opinion on the fight and the outcome.

“David Haye’s strengths are his fitness, great footwork and combination punching, he is however fighting an up-hill battle, as he is giving away, weight, size and home-turf,” warned Lewis.

“Experience is the key in boxing”, continued Lewis, “but skill trumps experience sometimes, lets hope David Haye’s skill can triumph over Valuev’s experience.  Haye needs to be elusive - you can’t hit what you can’t catch.  I believe Haye will win in Germany,” declared Lennox, who registered wins over Evander Holyfield, Vitali Klitschko and Mike Tyson.

“[Haye] has taken on a mighty task, given [Valuev’s] size, weight and the fact its in Germany he is trying to do something not often overcome, if he can do all of that then he is greater than he really is - you have to remember, he isn’t boxing a normal man he is boxing a giant!”

The fight will be aired live on Sky Box Office at 9pm on Saturday the 7th of November.

If a 44 year old evander can basically beat valuev then a prime haye most definitely can. theres virtually no difference in size between the two, and we've seen twice now that haye packs a punch at heavyweight. I dont…

This fight isn't going to be all that good, with Haye cruising to an easy points decision; at least in the eyes of those who saw the fight and aren't called "judges". Valuev has been given two incredible gifts in…
