I thought Holyfield clearly won against Valuev. I was not as convinced Haye had won at the time, or would even be given the decision. Even a couple British commentators were very unsure that he had done enough.

Haye threw very little, but Valuev landed even less...from what I saw anyway.

Haye fought like a coward and got a gift to boot... against one of the worst HWs in history.

So far we have 72% saying Haye either was boring or embarrassing.


Not one excellent vote yet.



Truly Jack needs to get his eyes checked then. And glad I do not have to watch this fight based on comments so far.

Thanks fellas.

It was boring but I don't blame Haye for using the tactics he did.

Round 12 was good because it's the first time I've ever seen Valuev in trouble; Haye rocked him pretty badly he almost went down. Apart from that the fight was boring & Valuev hardly laid a glove on Haye; I think Haye deserved the win.

However another poster on this site as basically made it sound like Ali vs Cleveland Williams in domination and performance.

How did you see it?
This gif has some great clips of the high intensity action of that and other SNV fights. Intense enough to cause religious visions.

Very boring fight. SNV looked horrible--slow, 1-dimensional, didn't adapt at all.

Haye ran the whole time but it's not like he could have won banging with SNV.

SNV hardly landed anything so can't disagree with the decision.

As an athlete, good performance by Haye; as a boxer/entertainer, pretty mediocre.

Not what I would call a championship performance. The irony of it is, the same nuthuggers who were claiming Dirrell didn't do enough to take the title from Froch were quite happy to see Haye walk away with Valuev's title for doing **** all for 12 rounds, certainly less than Dirrell did anyway.

Haye fought an exciting fight compared to the last few fights of the Klitschko sisters.

It was a boring fight but it was a decent performance from Haye, who was outweighed something ridiculous.

As a side note, if you scored the fight for Valuev, take up golf.
