The thing that really makes my **** fizz regarding Haye is how he believes he is the attraction, and therefore should be getting 50/50 purse splits with recognised champions who actually sell out football stadiums.
Also it wasn't until Haye fought Enzo where he actually became a big draw and it was down to Frank ******s promoting, prior to that the average Joe on the street didn't know who the fraud was.
I've never been a fan but I respect him as a very good fighter who has picked his fights meticulously to. Build a smoke screen regarding his "potential" and his overall ability and career so far.
