My guess is Haye would get a sniff of Dempsey's punching, then run away in the ring. Haye has time to prove me wrong.
I was disgusted with Haye's performance in the Wlad fight. This was the biggest night of his career, and he showed no heart at all. I too have to question his ability to handle a pressure fighter like Dempsey.
