    Seems no one thinks much of Haye's chances against Wlad in these quarters.

    Heavyweights traditionally mature late ,there is plenty of time for Audrey he will only be 39 when he meets Haye, no point in rushing him he is still learning his trade.









    Con man.:oops:

    Bruno easily
    Bruno racked up a decent heavyweight career.

    Haye hasnt even fought a decent heavyweight yet - just old men and a giant who was slower than middle aged men anyway.
    Haye is a classic cases of the emperors new clothes - I wouldnt fancy Hayes chances against Witherspoon, Tyson , lewis, McCall, Ribalta, Williams, Bugner ect ect
    and I reckon Bruno would be more effective against Hayes HW opposition.
    Haye is a chancer a KO waiting to happen once he fights a decent [ie not ancient] heavyweight.

    2 outcomes, Bruno inside 6 or Haye late stoppage.
    I'm more inclined to think big Frank will get to Haye first.

    I agree.

    Haye seems to have everyone fooled with just a decent punch and a sense of how to sell himself. He's a great salesman, a smooth talker, a pretty boy, and he can knock out some third-raters.

    As I said before, Bruno used to get savaged by the press for fighting the kind of fighters Haye is beating.

    I am a little surprized by the number of people picking Bruno here.

    The ridiculous Haye hype machine obviously isn't working on some of the more sensible thinkers here. :good

    Bruno wins 4 out of the first 5 and even cuts and drops Haye. Haye is in the fight but behind. Bruno starts to slow and Haye starts to take control by round 7 or 8. Eventually Haye breaks Bruno down and stops him in the 11th or 12th. Haye's speed is a big factor.

    Bruno

    Haye cannot bang with true heavyweights especially heavy handed Frank Bruno
