It would be interesting to revisit this thread in in 2012 to see how our predications went.

I tend to think one of the fighters in this thread wins a world championship belt in 2012. Haye is not that good, and might lose to Harrison. Vitali might retire sometime in 2011 or 2012, opening up the WBC belt. Wlad might be stripped of the IBF or WBO on politics.
