One thing about Haye i've noticed is that he's total marmite.

People love him, or they hate him. (there is no in between)

I watched the fight with 4 of my mates, 3 cheering like **** for Haye, 2 cheering like **** Chisora

And it wasn't because they liked Chisora, it was because they wanted to see Haye get KTFO.

One thing i will say, fighters who provoke a strong emotion in the fans either way, are generally the ones who make a ****load of cash (ask Floyd Mayweather)

People either tune in to see them knock someone out, or get knocked out, but either way, they're tuning in.

Clothes, Music....they all go out of fashion.

But winning doesn't and David Haye knows how to win. Former Undisputed CW World Champion, Former WBA world Champion, he slayed the giant, he got the mainstream interested in heavyweight boxing again.......it does not matter how many anti histamines you take, nobody is immune to HAYEFEVER!.

David Haye is like Marmite, people ether love him or hate him.

Mate I was a bit surprised by this as well, didnt think Chisora was disliked on that level, just thought he'd be the underdog at the fight.

Totally different to being at the weigh in where Del Boy seemed to get a lot less stick than Haye!

Not at all. People can say what they want about him. But Haye has a good fan base and always creates interest.

In the bar where we were watching the fight the loudest cheers were for Chisora....Im not a Haye fan but i think hes a fantastic fighter..As for Chisora, well he just seems to be like a lost child.
