If you hate Haye be honest, but don't let that dislike over-shadow the truth.
Valuev wasn't unbeaten. Chagaev did it before him. So basically his only significant achievement at HW was to barely beat one the worst champs in living memory in the worst HW title fight in living memory ever. Chagaev and a 47 year old Holyfield did it better.

Also do you think the WBA strap was a significant title when Valuev had it?
Was it ****?

And the best crusierweight in history?? Are you serious? Even though that is the worst division in world boxing that nobody ever gives a **** about...he made 1 defense so don't tell me he was the ****ing best in history.

Haye took everything from boxing and put nothing back , he robbed the fight public, he ran like a thief he can do what he wants but he was not good for the sport WORLD CHAMPION TRASH TALKER .

As Oli said, Valuev wasn't unbeaten. Not only that, but Wlad easily beat Chagaev, the man who beat Valuev.

Haye did pretty much nothing in the grand scheme of things.

His heavyweight resume is ridiculously weak.
He proved himself about equal with a 46-year-old Holyfield against Valuev, and he stopped an old finished Ruiz, who was no longer a genuine contender.
He went 12 rounds with Klitschko by almost completely refusing to engage. That's his full resume really. Awful.

It's a shame because it's boxing that misses out in the end.

Just like Hatton retiring in his prime.
