If Haye fought and stopped Vitali a Wlad rematch would make sense and be a lot more exciting I imagine.

I used to really like Haye. Shame.
but he would have just beat ONE OF the greatest ever and yes he would have done the world a favour by ending his reign.

Prime for prime Vitali grinds Haye down and stops him. I doubt many would argue with that.

However Vitali is 41yrs old now, and naturally age is taking it's toll. He looks slow, less powerful, and there for the taking. Although I wouldn't write Vitali off. He is still 6'7'', 250lbs, in good shape, and can still grind opponents down.... just not as effectively as days gone by.

Money talks ultimately, but I find it a bit sad Haye is now pursuing the 41yr old. I agree with another that Haye would be unbearable if he fought and beat Vitali. I used to like Haye, but his actions since he moved up to HW have really turned me off him. I don't want this fight to happen simply because I couldn't stand Haye if he won.

It's a good fight considering the HW division at the moment. My prediction: the fight happens, Sky Box Office to show it, and Vitali wins.

After saturdays fight two things stuck out for me that with the amount of times that vitali hit charr he didnt seem to make a dent in him and vitali's footwork seems to have disappeared. What happens if they fight now?
Old, shot Vitali still beats Haye.

Lets be honest as much as we all want to see haye stop vitali in which i think would happen, it never will he had his chance on july 2nd last year and he blew it that will be the ultimate exscuse from two brothers who've never relished a challenge.

even at 41 though i just see his style far too awkward for haye to trouble him

ive never even seen vitali wobbled once in his career other than perhaps the lewis fight. To suggest haye can knock him out which he would have to do as he wont win a decision is a bit far fetched

klitschko unanimous decision

Vitali probably had a 5 week training camp for Charr, as is usual for him against lesser opponents, one of the reasons he wasn't as sharp. Against Haye it would be a very different story.

It would be competitive between them but, IMO, Vitali still wins.

The odds for this fight look positive now.

The reason Vitali has 5 week camps is that his body begins to fall apart if he does any longer

Vitali looks so slow now and his power that used to register immediately seems to be no more.

Perfect timing for Haye. He must be salivating.
