Default Reaction to the "controversial" haye wlad pic

the pic of haye holding wlads decapitated head is old news but I was amused by some of the reaction to this article on the Setanta website...

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

so, was this a "classless act" with no place in boxing or just good pre-fight hype?

just good pre fight hype, maybe even vitali is hyping about it to get better interest in fight because vitali is a educated guy he knows boxing and he seen worse then that.

my favourite comment on the setanta website is...

"My only comments are for the good of boxing and its relations this picture should have an 18 certificate. I seem to remember children got hold of the video Childs Play and we all know what happened after that. Boxing is for young and old and this picture should be heavily censured. How can you advertise this picture before the watershed? It should be on the top shelf along with Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Kruger... Appalling taste... Another black eye for my favourite sport."


probably thinks children will start decapitating each other after seeing the picture.

Yup. Haye is an amicable fellow. I havn't seen a malicious bone in his body. It's just a bit of fun and pre-fight hype...I think its been taken that way in most quarters.

Best not let the kids into the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, where the version of Caravaggio's 'David With The Head of Goliath' referenced by the Haye photo is housed.

Won't somebody think of the children?

Just a bit of pre-fight hype.

Everyone likes a grudge match, so why not portray it as one; Haye posts picture of himself holding Vlad's head minus the rest of the body, Vitali gets mean and angry and says he must defend his family honour against such slander, each promises to knock the other guy out because there is such mutual hatred; game on.

Of course it will be ruined after the fight when they are kissing each others lips, crying on each others shoulders, and whispering sweet nothings in each others ears; the winner will be saying how much he respects the loser, and how he can still make it at the top level of the HW division; the loser will be saying what a great champ the winner is and how he wishes him all the luck in the future (he'll probably wink at the winner and say I'll be back, just keep that title warm for me - they'll both laugh). Then Haye will slap Vitali in the ass, and Vitali will cuddle David's balls, and they'll both declare the the pre-fight stuff was just to boost ratings and get extra money.

It;s just some pre-fight banter. Did the job for Haye as it lured Vitali into the fight.

btw First post of 09 on Brit Forum!!! lol

Personally, I think "haha I've cut your brother's head off" jokes are a bit tasteless but it's all in good fun innit. No harm done.
