As a FIGHT fan, it's tough for me to like David Haye.

I mean, all's he's done is chase the Klitschkos, then run like a scared dog with his tail between his legs when they turned towards him.

Even when he showed up to fight Wlad, he hid from him during the entire buildup, refusing to come within arms reach.
And in the ring......well, we all know how that went down.

But......but.....look at how well he does vs guys his size. In the DelBoy fight, you could clearly see how great a fighter David could be. Powerful slashing crosses and hooks. A pinpoint thudding jab. Ridiculous counter L hooks.

It's like.....how the f can you hate this guy. He's ****ing brilliant when he aint running. I myself began to dream about bouts with Chambers(would be a ****ing helluva fight), Potvetkin, Chagaev, and about a handful of others. Hell, I could see Haye laying Arreola DOWN. Not beating him into oblivion, but KHTFO.

But soon, so soon after, all my hopes were blown away as he went back into Klitschko chasing. Barking barking barking. Knowing damned well, that fight might never happen.

I came into this thread to lock it on account of I don't like threads aimed at fans rather than fighters, but you boys seem to have it in hand.

That's all well and good OP but what does this have to do with Vitali ducking the Hayemaker because he knows he is not capable of beating him?

I can't help but feel these fans are part of the new wave of "WWE" boxing fans. The type of fans who prefer an excellent build up over a decent fight. I could be wrong, but this new type of fan seems to be more focused on what happens outside the ring than in it, something I can't agree with.

With all that being said, I guess I'm just surprised Haye has so many fans remaining. Loyal fandom of a fighter is certainly admirable, but only if said fighter is worth being loyal to.

Boxing can certainly use more fans, and if these new fans are due to what goes on outside the ring instead of what goes on inside, then so be it.
nope. they are delusional . if someone is a haye fan after the last 5 or 6 years they are at this point idiots.
