    Sorry man, but if he threw a hayemaker like that at the 280lb blob Andy Ruiz. He would have been gobbled up in no time. Even the bodybuilder Joshua managed to knock chinny Klitschsko down! lol

    I remember being so excited about Haye winning this fight. I know there wasn’t much action in the fight, but I found it interesting because of the size difference and Haye boxing rings around this huge behemoth.

    But let’s be honest here for a moment, Holyfield had already done what Haye did a year prior, and did it better imo.

    Wasn't Haye injured during the Valuev fight? I believe that's why he was so reluctant to let his hands go.

    Haye had massive power. Shame he never even tried against Wlad. Wlad couldn't have taken his power (and viceversa, but at least try a bit?).

    He went from a cruiserweight who would seemingly take on anyone to a heavyweight who managed his way to a title shot and put in a pathetic show against Wlad. He was one of my favourite fighters when he was at cruiser. His heavyweight career was a joke for the most part.

    My point being that his career at HW was so limited because he has pretty debilitating injuries.

    Wasn't exactly all his fault.

    Now that you mention it, I do seem to remember Haye breaking his hand during the fight. Possibly from repeatedly punching Valuev in his giant head.

    David Haye wobbled the last known Neanderthal. Valuev's skeleton will probably be in a museum one day.

    How could you miss hitting Valuev's head? It was bigger than a Volkwagon Bug.

    Yep all of the physical gifts and talents that a boxer could ever want....but a classless underachiever to a fault. This shameful disgrace of a fight was a prime example. Running like a baby the entire time....yeah what a way to win a title (PUKE) If you ain't big enough to stand your ground then get the hell out of the ring. Another farce of a fight. Valuev shoulda won that **** too.
