Amazingly fast boxer, Mr patterson. Just didn't have the power to fight out of the Peek a boo style and trouble the Hard hitters...in my very humble opinion.
Agree totally with your opinion regards the 11-25 all time great range and Haye's prospects against them...altho it does depend on your own personal list....I've seen some lists positions 11-25 featuring the likes of Sonny Liston, Mike Tyson, Riddick Bowe, Max Baer etc....all of whom would destroy Haye in career ending fashion....But I give him a shot against the likes of Ken Norton(Early) Max smelling and Gene Tunney(size)
It's a funny question as Haye's power against the smaller men would cause obvious problems...but I see the likes Bonecrusher smith, Mike weaver, Tony Tucker also beating Haye well.
