Now let us take ROBERTO DURAN, and judge him on only two

on the top ten worst champion list. But, that is not reality as to the real
Duran.
Haye's resume has no depth none.

This was the case before Wlad...it got even worse after he disgraced himself.

Everyone missing the point he has always ducked Vitali he only ever wanted to fight Wlad and still does as he knows Vitali can walk through his best shots.

Now, at HW, anything can happen, so we can chaulk his wobbles vs Arreola up to getting caught, then grant, getting caught, but McBride....really no excuse to be caught vs McBride.

Haye is just too fast and too strong for Tomasz at HW, just IMO, and not basing it off the Vitali performance either. I fully expected Vitali to stop him when he first caught him, but Vitali LITERALLY carried Adamek, for whichever reasons, respect, money, admiration or empathy.

A fight with Haye wouldnt end so nicely as did his fight with Vitali. Haye punches with ill intentions on every throw, and with his speed, and Adameks ease of being caught, it's a surefire combination for disaster for Adamek.

At 2CW. I could see Haye being weight drained and sluggish like Byrd vs George, but when Haye is able to come in at a good natural weight of 220-225, he is a huge man comparitively speaking, faster, stronger, and more athletic....and dare I say.....a better set of whiskers.

Haye gets taken out.

Those amatuer punches are useless against Adamek.

I thought Wlad made him wade through the crowd and had preplaned to have someone come up with heavy boots and stomp on that toe?

I thought Haye recently claimed it wasnt the toe.

I have been a harsh critic of Haye. He took an easy route at heavyweight and talked himself into the fight for all the titles.

But, it takes a lot of balls to step into a boxing ring and Haye beat Valuev and some quality cruiser weights so he has won a respectful strap IMO at cruiser. He gave Wlad the best fight Wlad has had since his reign began and it takes a lot of balls to get in the ring with a guy who hits as hard as Wlad.

Best of luck David. I suspect we will see you back at only age 31.

Obviously not, otherwise he would have kept his license. This one is REALLY not hard to figure out. If he actually came to fight Vitali would be more than happy to end his career but that honor no goes to Wlad.

That's what he showed the world after the fight. Obviously I don't care enough to follow along....
