Default Re: If Haye were the same size as the Klitschko brothers

If you took Chris Byrd, and made 6'6, Byrd would outbox both Klitscho's. If you took Chagaev and made him 6'6, he would beat both of them also. Take Sam Peter, and make him 6'6, he would club them to death. His punches would no longer fall short all fight, they would now be landing with some frequency.
So basically if these guys had every possible advantage they would beat the Klitschkos?

If your going to make the likes of Bryd and Haye 6'6" and take away none of their speed, agility and skill, why not give Wlad and Vitali just as much speed and slickness too. Why is it always Klitschko victims who get all the advantages in these hypothetical threads?
