The big advantage rocky has is durability, workrate and stamina. Until the latter stages it would be a competitive fight imo.
Haye has never knocked anyone out. Ever. Bar Gurov, who couldn't hold a shot and was Euro level. Everyone else has been rising or taking a sustained drubbing. Sprott knocked Audley out more convincingly. His power is probably the most overrated punching power ever IMO, bar Valero. His finish ability is among the worst at the top level I have ever seen.
Rocky sparked Walcott, punched Louis out of the ring, and scored a Haye-esque K.O over a better fighter (Charles) than anyone Haye has stopped.
Haye is not very good at all mate. You're easily fooled by a bit of flash and aesthetic quality I think.
