Who wins this fight?
Povetkin by knockout!!!
its a good intreging match!
Where are the guys who claimed Haye will win by KO in 2 rounds? We all know Haye didn't look good vs. a limited Chisora for the first 3-4 rounds. I wonder how he'd look vs. Povetkin if he jumps him like that.
Too bad the top heavyweights do not fight each other.
Povetkin retired what are u guys talking about lol
If Povetkin can take flush punches from Vlad all night, he can take them from Haye.
Haye, on the other hand, has a shaky chin. The only reason he went the distance with Vlad is that he ran away all night. Povetkin pressed the action.
Povetkin beats Haye by KO in a shoot-out. If Haye plays defense, he'll lose on points just like Eddie Chambers and Ruslan Chagaev did.
'aye would kill that guy.
Did you see Povetkin's footwork ? He has none. Haye will simply slide to the side everytime povetkin charges in straight forward outscoring him on the way to a wide UD. otherwise possibly catch him coming in with a shot. This is heavyweights brah, a correctly timed power punch will put almost anyone down. Also he never really ate a solid right hand from Wlad seeing as wlad wasn't really throwing rights and he got dropped/stunned all through the night... hardly this unstoppable chin you are eluding to.
Also alot of commentators believe that Wlad could have finished him off if he wanted to after the 7th, but he held back for reasons unknown, I have to agree because Povetkin was extremely shaky and had no legs left - he was ready to go!
Also a massive question mark hangs over Povetkin's conditioning, he was breathing like a horse since the first round, I think his conditioning is pisspoor, and will also be exposed vs Haye.
Povetkin proved against Wlad that he is tough and won't just fold and that he could cut off the ring well based upon the number of clinches he forced Wlad to make. So he could be a very tough fight for Haye.
But Haye tends to stop fighters who come at him, Mormeck, Chisora, Ruiz etc all walked into his power and came off 2nd best. Also unlike Wad, Haye will look to finish it when the opportunity presents itself. If he can KO Chisora he can KO Povetkin.
If Povetkin can not get KO'ed and take the fight late where his pressure will tire Haye he can maybe win. But I have always favoured the faster, slicker, harder hitting Haye and I still do. Haye KO.
This fight will sell well, I'm sure of it.
Going for Haye KO but Povetkin UD is likely too.
Haye by KO.
povetkin wins..out of shape povetkin loses by stoppage tho
Well I've heard that David looked better against Wladimir who looked really good in their fight.
There might be KD's on either side in this one but I think it will go the distance and Povetkin wins a close but clear UD on activity (except if held in the UK of course).
