Default Adam Booth's tactics.

Firstly I have a lot of respect for the Dark Lord.

But since the Haye - Wlad fight and his comments afterwards I can't help thinking this fight has shown his limitations. He just didn't seem to have any plan b and even after the fight he has basically suggested that David Haye's style isn't the right style to beat Wlad. Haye is a fantastic athlete, a talented fighter and I can't help thinking that someone like freddie roach or Manny Steward could come up with a fight plan for Haye to be more effective against Wlad, those guys would have a plan b.

When has he ever got his fighter to switch up his plan midfight with any success?

His main fight strategy seems to be to make the opponent miss, and make it obvious. Oh, and a whole lot of gamesmanship too, like getting Haye to slump to the canvas everytime Wlad got close to him.

Adam Booth is a good trainer and a smart man. Not in the league of Eddie Futch, Cus Aamto, and M. Stewart but he is a good trainer...he speaks with alot of the sense.

Catchy but a bit David Brent, C-Pole. Sometimes a guy just isn't going to win the fight and this recent obsession with trainers and "gameplans" can't change that.

Exactly Claypole, his tactics for Valuev, Harrison, Degale, Wlad all have the focus on defence.

Haye's defensive performance was good against Wlad, but offensively he was next to useless.

Haye only just got the balance right with Valuev, and it was all wrong against Wlad.

He didnt barely threw a punch. A man with the talent of Haye should at least throw 30 punches a round not 12. He could have stopped Valuev.

Truth is, Booth did anything but think outside the box against Wlad. Haye is better than what Booth allowed him to be.

I thought Haye would pull it off and it's easy to be wise after the event but Wlad was too big a mountain to climb.
