Re: Haye as an amateur
Haye can be HURT and HURT big. The sort of hurt that can get a fight stopped. In the pros he'll be able to come back from being hurt like that, as long as the ref is good. So being stopped in the ams isn't major in the pros.
For example Lewis stunned Bowe a couple of times and stopped him but it hardly meant Bowe was chinny. He similarly got stunned/hurt in the pros but because it was the pros he could continue i.e. against Holy and Golota.
Haye has recently showed against Mormeck that being hurt isn't the end of the world. When Thompson stopped him he was exhausted and clueless.
