Haye wouldn't even put up a proper fight. He'd make it boring by being so negative and defensive. Farr would win a landslide decision.
Anyway, Haye is the product of a different era. He could afford to avoid young HW contenders and still get his shot at the real champion, and pick up his own "heavyweight championship of the world" in the meantime. In Farr's day, he would have had to fight a few more young tigers just to get a 100th of the column space and coverage he's been gifted in today's world.
