    Haye did his usual chatting before the fight of course, what he was going to do bla bla bla. That's what got me mad. OK, if he'd have crashed in there he'd have probably been kod but he did just enough imo but not in a encouraging manner. He probably remembered been stopped by the big Cat Thompson!

    Awful fight where very little happened apart from the last round where Haye wobbled Valuev.

    I think Haye landed early, and either hurt his hand and/or was shocked that he didn't budge the giant. He was very reluctant to engage, and Valuev was incapable of applying effective pressure.

    I expected more from Haye coming in, and in my view both Chagaev did a lot better and won without running for most of the fight.

    There seems to have been a lot of revisionism about the job Haye did. I wouldn't have had a problem with Valeuv getting the nod. A lot of the rounds came down to which style you preferred.

    If I recall, Valuev landed only a couple few punches a round than Haye. Please don't make me rewatch that fight.

    They both landed under a hundred punches (hahahahahahahaaahaaaaa) but it was like 95-65 or something.

    However, Haye threw way less and was running, which looks terrible.

    Don't worry we can just forget it. Was a tough watch.

    Remember how Pep (supposedly) won a round without ever throwing a punch?

    I give you Nik o' the Wisp.

    Most Brits and even the BBC commentators had Walujew winning, as they argued Haye did not enough as challenger (and away from home).

    Haye always did a lot of that. He talked a great game but (at heavyweight) he delivered precious little. His best result was stopping Chisora who's little better than a fringe contender and a washed up Ruiz.

    He got overrated out of all proportion to his achievements on account of his big mouth. It was always he was going to obliterate this or decapitate that but if he didn't pull out with injury he simply didn't deliver. Even as late as the Bellew fights when he'd ceased being relevant at heavyweight he was doing it and getting unwarranted attention because of it.

    Very good cruiserweight but as a heavyweight he was a hype job.
