Default Re: mason vs haye

Mason only really fought one good fighter - Lennox Lewis, who was a comparative novice in only his 14th or 15th fight.... whereas Mason had had well over 30.

Frank Maloney wrote in his book that he was very surprised Mason's team took the fight, stating that if he was in their position he would have avoided Lennox like the plague - yet Mickey Duff was of the view that Lewis's team had pushed their man too quickly.

I think Haye's speed would be the factor in this one, but until the last bell goes you cannot rule out Mason. Haye has had stamina issues and has been put flat on his ass by lighter hitters than Gary.
