That's Haye's best win.
.. or Valuev. Haye pipped the giant in uninspiring fashion, a fighter who'd been lucky to get decision over 46 year-old Holyfield.

If I mention any of Haye's other HW wins, nothing good can be said. They are best forgotten.
Hmm you saved me the bother of having to answer.
That's what established him as standout, combined with his cw unification.
