    i agree with your assessment, except for the speed factor. I think Haye is naturally a little faster coming from Cruiser and Tommy being a big Brolic natural Heavyweight.

    dont get me wrong neither one of these fighters are Muhammad ali. But coming up from Cruiser I have to give a slight edge to Haye. But wouldnt matter. i think Morrison would deal with Haye punching power and knock his ass out afterwards. It would be guns-blazing from the 1st bell though. A fight I would love to watch.:bbb

    Ive been watching alot of Morrison lately and i do feel he is slightly underrated, he was pretty good but his really bad losses do affect my judgement. He had pretty much everything, apart from a decent chin, he could have gone on to be a decent HOFer with his skills

    I know neither of them are Ali and im glad 2bh.....if every guy was like Ali, boxing would be a very boring sport

    Haye might have the edge for single shot hand speed, mainly the right hand.

    For hand speed in combinations, Morrison kills Haye. Haye's hand speed is as overrated as Sandra Oh is ugly.

    They both can hit and have leaky chins, so this fight could be a real wild one. While I'm inclined to pick Morrison, I cannot confidently pick a guy who get stretched by Michael Bentt.

    Maybe he is shacked up with Floyd, cowering like an abused child.

    I say this with the utmost respect for David Haye but Morrison would probably knock him out. The guy was actually a pretty dam good fighter.
