I like haye, watched his whole career but he made less impression on the british public than wood**** did in the British post war years. why wasn’t david as mainstream in his own country? could it be that they saw more of him than you did?
Haye has tools and assets and hopefully his career is not over. for much of his career David relied far too much on beating a fighter to the draw and his stamina was bad. He never showed he had the pace or the ability to win an exchange without going down. I really cant see how you can put as much faith in an unfinished article.
Pretty much agree with most of what you've written on this thread. Wood**** pre Joe Baski gives Haye a Carl Thomspn type of fight.
Baski ruined ( that , that hadn't already been ruined by their respective mangers and promoters ) both Wood**** and Freddie Mills . All but blinded Wood**** permanently - and Mills told his corner that Baski was too big, too strong and simply quit there and then.
