I know you're just wanting to defend one of Wladimir Klitschko's better wins but in reality the man just wasn't that good. He blew away some usual suspects of the Euro scene and nearly embarrassed himself against the big circus act that was Nikolai Valuev with an output of 2 punches a round. If not for Valuev having fallen out of favours and having ran his course, he probably would have been jobbed like the rest, putting him in the same category as ancient Larry Donald and Holyfield.
The only reason he might get a win here, is because Wood**** himself wasn't much of a fighter. He could still hit and that's why I wouldn't lay any money on Haye to win, a guy that was on the floor against a middleweight.
