I commend Haye wanting to prove he is the best at heavyweight, but this time I think he has bitten more he can chew. He went for the "wrong" Klitschko brother in my opinion. This guy has a chin of granite where his youngerbrother is more chinny. I think Klitschko "senior" will KO Haye in less than 5 rounds.
Had Haye fought Klitschko "junior" then I would have given him a slight chance because of the reason he is more chinny. It will be a similiar outcome as to when Klitschko "senior" destroyed another cruiserweight in the name of Herbie Hide who was another reknown KO specialist like Haye. I think Haye will suffer the same problem as Hide, when he fights these so-called "super" heavyweights like the Klitschko brothers, Haye will be found wanting.
totally agree with you ,haye is not a true heavyweight ,but he is bigger than hide and has more power than Herbie did, i was a big fan of Herbie hide the guy gave it is all standing down to no man .
he did get his #$%$ kicked yes but he kicked a few himself great
fighter , Hayes is on the cusp of doing something great ,i do think he can go all the way to being the undisputed champ the klitschko brothers are slipping ,age and power is on Hayes side
go on my son give them the beating no other has done , then put yourself on the $100 dollar bill after you spank the yanks .
the world belongs to Britain once more.......
The outcome of such fight is not certain at this point. The Brothers do not have the best jaws in history of boxing. Both of them have been seriously rocked out in the past. True vitali on both occasions via injury including a fight in which he was dominating Lennox.Vitali is definately the best boxer out of the two brothers. Haye on the other hand has not been tested and was knocked out cold by an old thompson while he was young. the jaw does not get better with age even though it reaches a peak of resistance in the late twenties but declines at the thirties. Wlad will be destroyed by haye if he stands in the way. He cannot sustained that power remember Brewster and sanders let alone journeyman purity. Vitali is a rock and a better boxer than haye. Condionning may be his problem. He has never been knocked out cold and it would take a lot to make him fall. The brothers are two different people and neither are indestructible on the other hand haye is not either.
haye will win this convincingly. klitschko is a boring fighter, he cannot be regarded as one of the greatest ever heavyweights and i think when they eventually fight you'll see klitschko on his back.Haye hasnt avoided im, he just didnt wanna be locked into a stupid contract like klitschko wanted
It is finally startng to look like the Haye vs Klitschko fight is going to happen. There aren't really all that many big money waits to be had at heavyweight, so I honestly do feel that it wll happen. I worry about Hayes weight, and whether it could turn into a 'Herbie Hide' affair, but Haye isn't quite that small, and has a powerful punch.
I do think Haye will be the outsider, but he certainly has a chance. He's not scared of anyone. He won't be defeated before he enters the ring, which is the problem with most of the Klitschko brothers opponents.

Sad to say Haye hasn't a chance went to the MEN to watch him, he's just not good enough talks a good fight but when it comes down to fighting these two im afraid they are different class, took him nearly all his time with a washed out journeyman put him in with someone who can punch.As a devout englishman my head says he can but in reality my stan james account says NO WAY!!
I don't really get excited about many fighters, but David Haye has the whole package. He is a showman, he can fight, and he likes to take on the best.
I know that his chin isn't great, but I honestly think that he stands a chance against either brother, and it'll be a macthup I relish (assuming that it actually happens).

Describing Lewis as a master is a bit strong. KO'd by two very average fighters (McCall and Rahman) although he did avenge them.
Look at who Lewis actually beat.
Ruddock - Coming off two very gruelling defeats by Tyson.
Tucker - Already beaten by Tyson.
Bruno - Gave Lewis all manner of trouble and was drawing on two cards and winning on another when the fight ended.
Jackson - Hopelessly mismatched with an inflated recorded.
McCall - Has lost 5 of 29 fights coming in and KO'd Lewis in 2.
Butler - 22-10-1 - Need I say more.
Fortune - Total mismatch.
Morrison - Savagely stopped by Mercer and beaten in a round by Michael Bennt,
Mercer - Losses to an ancient Larry Holmes and oft-beaten Jesse Ferguson
McCall II - Beat a man who had a breakdown in the ring during the fight!
Akinwande - Unbeaten, difficult opponent, Lewis did well.
Golota - Coming off the two hard Bowe fights and never achieved anything afterwards.
Briggs - Beaten by Darrol Wilson.
Mavrovic - Unbeaten but unproven at world level.
Holyfield I & II - Holyfield was already SEVEN years past his prime.
Grant - Relatively untested at world level, but good performance from Lewis.
Botha - Already stopped by Moorer and Tyson.
Tua - Arguably Lewis' strongest opponent - Brilliantly outboxed by Lewis.
Rahman I & II - More proof of Lewis' susect chin and concentration.
Tyson - A totally spent force over a decade past his prime.
Klitschko - Lewis was down on all three cards.
To me, Tua and Klitschko were Lewis' best opponents. I know you can only beat what's put in front of you and Lewis did that, but the two losses, despite being avenged. are major blots on his record.
As far as Lewis being the best British Heavyweight ever, yes he was, but who did he have to beat? Bruno, Cooper etc. IMHO Bob Fitzimmons beating Jim Corbett was a much bigger achievement than Lewis beating Ruddock.
