not bad, a tad dissapointed after all the talk and rumour. Probably more dangerous than james Toney to be honest, but nowhere near the same buzz. Also, not a big puncher, so lowers Davids risk factor right down.

Interesting that he aint rated by WBC who David has always been ranked by.

It's not an inspiring match up.
I want to see how Haye deals with Heavyweight power, so wanted Maskaev or someone of that ilk.

He had a draw with Ibragimov in only his 4th fight, Timor was 13-0 at the time. Aside form that there aint nothing special on there is there.

Johnson was hyped a few years back on these boards, but if he struggled with an OLD Bruce Seldon then he can't really be up to much...

i think over 3 rounds rahman and maskaev would offer a bigger text, but johnson will give haye at least 8-9 rounds of action i think.

I really like this fight. Kev is a good boxer and on the way up. This is a far better fight than some old peice of shit like Toney or Rahman.

Don't like it, because it will be slated by the yanks. Toney, Thompson or even Maskaev would have been better in terms of silencing the haters.

Seems ok to me, for a first fight (I know he fought Bonin but of course took the weight off again). He's been running his mouth but it's just part of the game.

I think Haye is not only trying to get a top 10 ranked opponent but he is also pushing for the biggest purse he can get, that's why he can't get Rahman or Maskaev signed, those guys won't come in for 20-30% of the purse.
