Wlad is fast, very fast.
I think Haye was extremely surprised by Wlad's speed and reflexes. He's very quick, deceptively so and could match Haye for speed all night. His superior footwork made it sure Haye got very few opportunities to counter and most of the time he did Wladimir was out of danger quickly and Haye was left over-reaching.
It has no bearing on Haye vs Vitali, a fight I think is there for Haye to win especially at this stage of VK's career and one I would like to see even though most of VK's fans don't.
