Default Wladimir Klitschko has faster hands than Mike Tyson

Thats according to a man who should know.

Former Mike Tyson trainer :

Tommy Brooks.

Who worked with Tyson for a number of years and also did some gym work with Wladimir at some point made this comment.

Tyson was known for being very quick for a heavyweight with his hands.

Alot of Wladimirs opponnets have also said how shocked they were at how fast he was - with both his hands and quick on his feet.

Chris Byrd - who was thought of as a defensive elusive smaller and nimble type - like Haye is thought of - was cut down and destroyed by a motivated Wlad a few years a back.

Some would argue - Wladimir is even more powerful than Mike Tyson was too.

Emanuel Stweard another man who has worked with both Lennox Lewis and Wladimir has commented that Wlad is more powerful on the pads than Lewis was.

So with faster hands than Tyson and real serious power - how will David Haye fare against this ?

What makes it intriguing is - Haye has described his speed for this fight to be "insane" - so lets see who really is fastest with their hands and quickest on their feet in that ring on fight night ?????

Im told by a number of insiders that Wladimir is more proficient at the famous "one inch punch" than Bruce Lee.

One of his former trainers also claimed he is harder than Chuck Norris, cooler than the Fonze and has a bigger **** than Ron Jeremy.

(Hmmm. This post just doesn't have enough emoticons to get my point across.)

THIS, is why Klit fans are worse than Mayweather/Pactards.

I heard a whisper that Wladamir is actually Jesus and he can walk on water.

Apparently Wladimir is much more nimble than the great Muhammed Ali, and also has a better chin than him. He's also quicker than a prime RJJ, and defensively, is much more sound than the young pretender Floyd Mayweather Jr. He also has the fighting heart of Joe Frazier, let it be known. Its for these reasons that all his fights have been gripping, edge of seat viewing, that audiences around the world have craved. Basically the greatest 'fighter' ever?

Ahh right. In that case it's quite easy to believe.
