Enzo made a silly mistake. It can happen to anyone. If he hadn't made the mistake he would have won.

Also, as FW pointed out, we knew it was just a matter of who landed first and it just happened to be Haye. It could just as easily have been Enzo.

Enzo is clearly the better fighter. Take nothing away from Haye.

It was never a matter of who landed first, it was always a matter of when Haye first landed.

Trying to start an arguement with such silly statements.

I know. I was just kidding.

It's quite funny, the fight made it apparant that the two fighters are in different leagues but Enzo Calzaghe and Frank ****** are trying to make it seem like either man could have won. I suppose it's just damage limitation for when Enzo makes a comeback.

Frank ****** will know that Enzo was outclassed but I have no doubt that Enzo Calzaghe believes that Big Mac would have won if he hadn't made the "mistake".

Early stoppage? I was worried the ref might jump in too quickly but if the ref had let the fight go on it would have been criminal. He was wobbling all over the place.

But his chin by far had to be the worst in the hisotry of boxing. All the power he was able to wield didnt make a blind bit of diffrence and his professional career was over in 3 years. Obviously those are extreme examples and Hayes chin isnt that bad. BUT to be shook by a career super middle, KO`ed (although via exhaustion by Thompson) and dropped with LEAD RIGHT hands by Mormeck is bad news. These are all technical flaws that Haye can fix defensively.

At heavy he wont have a chance to fix them if his busy eating punches.

The lack of a decent chin will hinder any fighter laboured with it. But even the guys with good chins get put down when hit by the best. Look at Peter, he's a beast with a huge punch and good chin but Mcline put him over and over. Whether Haye's punch is big enough to do that we do not know yet but it will definetly level the playing feilds out.

More important to Haye than his punch is his skill, the bloke is talented and only Wlad will be on his level.

The big problem with Haye is not his chin but his low left hand, like I said before even granit chinned guys can not afford that.

Haye can not improve his chin but he can improve his defence. He still may get clocked and who knows he could get KOed in his first fight back against some bum but it would be good for boxing if he did actually end up being a force.

Any one else notice Enzo's hair sticking up at the back? It looked like he'd just woken up. Maybe that's why he lost?

He did look really silly for all 5 minutes of the fight.
