Haye has shown nothing to me that suggests he would box anything but fearfully against Dempsey. Stretchered out.
Something to do with those men being 240-330lbs, much bigger with elite jabs, compared to 180lb Dempsey who had no jab and no size advantage
How about we compare against similar styles, ie: Chisora, Fragamoni or Mormeck. He showed frailties in all those fights that give Dempsey a decent chance here, but to compare Dempsey to Waldo and the big hairy giant is off base. The fights I mentioned he has 3kos out of 3, despite the frailties. How well did Dempsey do against fast counter punchers?
Dempsey gives many more countering opportunities because he punches more leaving more holes
