    Ibragimov beats haye. So does Parker and Peter. The rest is the same.

    Good list and analysis.
    Haven't read the front page story. My first thoughts are that you're being charitable to Haye. All the ones you have Haye losing are spot on.

    However some that you have Haye winning, close or not, I think are pick 'em fights. One example: Sultan vs. DH. You very reasonably have it as a SD for Haye. Now Sultan was a small HW, but so is Haye. Going from memory but Sultan looked about as bad vs. Wlad as Haye did. To me that's straight up 50-50 fight. Not so sure Haye UDs prime Peter & Ortiz. He definitely could on a good night, but I could see Haye losing one of those.

    Reality would probably be that few if any of these fights would eventuate.
    There would be fight negotiation sagas taking up most of a year, Haye pulling out at the last minute, postponements.

    Many of those fights could have actually taken place but Haye was too inactive for whatever reason.

    I don’t think Haye lasts 8 rounds with Povetkin personally. If he heard the bell for round 5 I’d be impressed.

    That’s Fair but favouring haye a lot. Ruiz would definitely come close to stopping haye if you ask me. Haye also wasn’t that brave when he wasn’t a big favourite to win.

    Hayes best fight at HW was chisora. That’s what we go by I guess. Chisora is a iron chinned pressure fighter who cannot take a step back, it was a perfect opponent for a sharp ko artist like haye.

    I’d agree with nearly all that bar Wilder an pulev, I think he can turn that the other way, and a niggle suspicion he might be able to do something with Pov if he stuns him same with Joshua

    I don't think he would have won against Tschagajew (who performed a lot better against a fresher version of Walujew, just as tried more vs. Klitschko) and the Byrd one could go the other way too.

    Haye was out of his feet in the first round and got saved by the referee and the bell there. He was lucky that it got stopped after the second knockdown, 6 seconds before the bell in round 5.
    I scored it just 3 - 2 for him.

    Nonpovetkin is too hard headed and consistent for haye, I mean when pov finds his range he isn’t rushed he keeps his form well. Haye gets sloppy.
