Default Do you think Haye genuinely believes his words?

...or it is just BS hyping up the fight? Will Haye enter the ring supremely confident as per his words expecting to KO Wlad..or will he enter bricking it thinking "oh shit i've gotta really do it now for real"

I'm in two minds...which way to take him. Your thoughts?

I think he believes it and I hope he achieves it.

Does he honestly believe that Wlad only fought crap opponents and he (Haye) himself comes of a series of fine victories against credible opposition (Valuev, Ruiz, Harrison)?

That's what he says and if he believes that then he's totally nuts. I don't think he believes it though. I mean nobody can be that stupid.

I would bet he believes he can do it, he's a fighter. Although I think Wlad is more confident about victory. I believe they both realize they are walking into a more dangerous fight than either has been in, in at least a while.

I think a lot of what he says is to get attention and buys for the fight. With regards to nerves, I really hope he is nervous cos he'll need to be better than ever to beat Wlad and a few nerves will sharpen him up!

Haye hyped himself up. You can tell by the press conferences haye knows he ****ed up Wlad's going to school him big time.

All Haye's words only dug him into a hole anything more devastating than a close points loss and he will never be able to hold his head high again.

Pretty much agree with this.

I'm don't know whether he believes all the stuff about Wlad's crap record and whathaveyou but I'm 100% certain he thinks he can win. I think he can as well for what it's worth and I think he will.

I think that he halfway believes it, but there's that little voice i nhis head saying "dude you're gonna have to back all ths shit up now" and he's questioning himself. He's not the first guy to talk trash before facing Wlad in the ring. It's one thing to say this and that, but another thing to actually be standing opposite that man in the ring and then have to actually do it. Personally, I think once Haye tastes a few stiff jabs that little voice will be more like a scream and I fear we're gonna see a very boring fight with one guy in a track suit (running) and the other guy unable to make the adjustments to get him out of there (jab, jab, grab). I see it going Wlad by decision the more and more I play it out in my mind.

90% the former 10% the latter due to the nature of HW boxing

He knows he can destroy Wlad and is very confident of beating him.

I doubt he believes any of the the shit he says about his own or Wlad's former opponents etc, but I think he believes he will beat Wlad.

In 40 years of following the fight game,i've yet to hear an opponent say he expects to be outclassed,and brutally beaten.So i'm saying NO,Haye is doing what he needs to in order to sell the fight and potentially increase his pay cheque.
