Haye was boxing in the first four rounds. Throwing, moving, feinting, looking.
Wlad connects hard twice in the 5th, Haye gave up. It seems borderline obvious he knew he couldn't handle the power, and that if he wanted to avoid getting pancaked, he had to worry about defense first.
Shameful effort. Try to win, always. If you take a right hand that is just too heavy, and you have no interest in continuing, take a knee. Is your toe hurting you? Retire on the damn stool. Don't stay in the fight and not try to win.
My first coach always told me, earn your damn paycheck.
