    50-50 fight. Haye is faster and more elusive than Morrison. But Morrison was tough as well . A fans delight, guaranteed PPV

    Harder to land on Haye than Morrison thought

    Questions:

    Would Haye be eager to engage with Morrison or would he be on his bike?
    Would Morrison actually train for the fight and quit the booze and drugs?
    Despite Morrison’s Glass Jaw he showed he could get up over and over. How would Haye handle that?
    Would Haye be able to get up if knocked down?
    Both guys were excellent at finishing a wounded opponent. Morrison could fight and he had heart. Haye has the speed and power to catch Morrison early if he pressed it. This would be one hell of a fight for the fans while it lasted. I could see either guy stopping the other.

    Haye is far superior to Morrison, and I know "but da 90s mayne"

    Tommy Morrison is an example of why the 90s are hilariously overrated, can you imagine what the klitschko brothers would do to Morrison?

    Haye is faster, more elusive and would simply land first and it'd be over, Morrison got ktfo by a literal BUM when in his prime, and it wasn't a case of him being an idiot and gassing like Haye vs Thompson, he literally just got straight murked by a bum

    Yeah Morrison looked impressive against 90s crackhead bums sometimes but take him out of that circus era he doesn't last long, he's basically Alexander Povetkin with no chin and one third the skill.

    Hayes trainer cuts him on the eyebrow to avoid the fight. Fight fans loose out again.

    whilst waiting for the cut to heal, a vast majority of fans approach Haye asking for the him to take on a better opponent such as Audley Harrison.

    This is exactly how I see this too. Whoever lands big first takes the cake.

    This is genuinely a very good match up, since Tommy has the advantage is power, technique and hand-speed but Haye has the stamina and style advantages. Chin too, although it's not actually by much and given that neither can take each others power, I don't think this actually matters all too much.

    I honestly have no idea. Tommy would have the advantage early on, but if he got overzealous Haye could time him and spark him out, if Haye survives 5/6 the it's likely he'll win by KO but Tommy could always pull a Rudduck type KO out and win that way. Baffling.

    One things sure, someone is getting KTFO'd, I can't commit to who though.
