Klitschko just beat someone who is absolutely shot to pieces and who in no way, shape or form deserved a title shot and you think he's unbeatable?

That fight wasn't a masterclass, it was a laboratory dissection of a cadaver.

You can't really judge anything from that fight! Briggs was just a punching bag. I agree though that Vitali is still the tougher fight of the 2 brothers.

Briggs is a joke these days.
The bothers ain't that good and never have been, but Haye is not the guy to beat either of them. The division has been shit for years.

I agree; Vitali who hasn't scored an early stoppage in seven years- is very likely to stop the first decent challenger he's faced since Lewis early. Makes perfect sense.

I think Haye would beat both but he doesn't fancy the fight. So doesn't really matter.

Haye destroys Vitali no credible good opponent since his comeback, I think Haye box circles round him

The fight will happen just be patient.

Oh come on. Wlad is a much tougher fight than Vitali.

Not saying Haye will spark vitali as he does have a good chin but Haye will be able to land pretty quickly and should be able to outbox him for most of the fight. Vitali only starts putting his punches together of late when the opponent is too tired to throw anything back/defend themselves. Even a shot to shit briggs took him the distance and was able to land on him, Haye would land at will.

More skilled fighters than Haye, like Larry Donald or Byrd, couldn't box circles around Vitali. And if you say no credible opponent since his comeback, do you really think Bonin, Barrett, Valuev, Ruiz at the ages Haye fought them beat are better than Arreola or Gomez? Even Briggs would take out Bonin and Barrett. Gomez would easily outpoint anyone Haye ever faced in his career.

I think the time that you posted this thread suggests you were making a drunken attempt at humour.

Nice try anyway.

It does when you consider that Haye has sruggled agaisnt inferior super-middleweights and crusiers.

I'd give Haye a chance alright. Opinion seems to have swayed back towards Vitali on this after watching him batter Briggs around. Briggs should never have been in there in the first place, he's ancient.
