Tark .Seems like you saw a different fight to what others saw.Anyone calling pro fighters cowards is stupid .How many pro fights did you have tark.?
Bowe didnt fight Lewis cos he remembered their olympic fight.Lewis twice fought guys that had KOd him .And you call him a coward .You oughta be ashamed of yourself.He had earned his retirement after about 15 yrs as a pro.

Chisora lost to a slowed down 40 year old fighter who fought him with a torn ligament in his left shoulder, essentially using one arm. Chisora won 2 rounds….how does that make you world class?….Anybody with any sense knew that Haye saw it was all smoke and mirrors otherwise he wouldnt take the risk…thats just Haye…..4 years in the heavyweights, he fought 2 ranked fighter, barely beatinfg Valuev and losing badly to Vladimir. Its time for Haye to fight a decent fighter, not just hope that Vitali will get injured or be slowed down enough he can win….that just Haye being his usual cowardly self. just like he flopped on the floor when vladimir pinned him in the corner, I dont want to see another David Haye flop fest. If Haye just fought Solis while he was waiting around I’d be all for him getting another shot…but I want to see him face a top 10 fighter….maybe 2…why is that so much to ask?…

Lewis opened a vaginal wound on vitalis face. One of the most serious cuts I have ever seen in boxing, if that fight went on Vitali would have one eye left. If vitali hides behind his jab all night he will win, but if haye gets through unlike chisora did, i belief haye could ko vitali, sanders almost did it and haye is way faster than sanders. Its the only fight left to watch in HW, unless its klitschko vs klitschko.

Posted September 28, 2012 5:07 pm 


Vitali had ONE round where he was dominant and he did not even produce a KD during that “dominant round” he dominated Adamek and received NO return fire from the smaller boxer… Against Lewis he was bleeding like a virgin after a gangbang after 3 short rounds…. Get your ass off fantasy island it was a back and forth contest that saw Klitschko the worse for wear and ultimately pulled out due to his inability to stop right hands that left him bleeding profusely from 5 cuts…. Domination???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Posted September 28, 2012 12:08 pm 


Even at 41, Vitali kicks Hayes ass.
Haye may decide to trade with Vitali
since he is now 41 years old. Mistake.
Vitali is a master counter puncher and
takes all the openings Haye offers with
his wide open stance and haymaker tactics.
Haye may land a few bombs, but his punch
is not as powerful as Corrie Sanders punch
was. And Vitali took Corries wicked left in
full force on the chin. This will be a good fight
and I think Vitali Knocks Out David Haye. Vitali
has excellent footwork, good counter punching,
punches from all angles, and Vitali closes the
distance to mix it up. Haye gets KTFO by Vitali.

Tark is not an idiot in this post. He is absolutely correct. Haye had one bad night against Vlad who is the best in the world. Vitali will be a different fight and although I think that Fres should get a shot before David notmany ppl can challenge the Klits especially Wach or Charr. They have destroyed Adamak, Areola, Thompson & Chambers so Mitchell, Wilder or Jennings with rounds less than Areola wont fair any better. Oquendo is the only American who stands a chance to win and has NOT FOUGHT a Klit. Hay did KO Chisora which Vlad could not do so it is at least reason to believe it would be a competitive fight. At least with Haye & Oquendo you would get 2 experienced, amateur pedigreed in shape fighters to show up game day which is a lot more than last few opponents Klits have faced…….

People who think that Vitali would easily defeat Haye are fools. Look at the Wlad vs Haye fight. Why was Haye not succesfull. In my opinion, Wlads reflexes and speed combined with the longer reach/better jab neutralized Hayes strenghts. Vitali has a similar jab, but his reflexes/speed are not near to Wlads. I am convinces that Haye will land a lot more on Vitali then he would on Wlad. On the other hand probably also the other way around. It’s a fight that could go both ways. Vitali is inb a difficult position here. On one hand beating Haye would add to his legacy. On the other hand, he’s 41, there is a real chance he loses. When he loses, it won’t matter he was 41

Posted September 28, 2012 1:12 am 


Only fools think that Wladimir dominated Haye in their fight. Wladimir won by a TINY margin in most of the rounds. It was a cautious fight by both the fighters. David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko both possess the best reflexes/athlecticism in the HW division and hopefully it wont be too long before the two will meet again….

Posted September 28, 2012 12:16 am 


I’m not a big K fan (and I was a Lewis fan), but you need to pull your head out of your ass. Vitali was dominating lewis until sustaining that awful cut. He basically lost to bad luck, and Lewis retired instead of redeeming himselfm in a rematch. Lewis didn’t spank Vitali, it was the other way around. Lewis just got lucky and stopped him on cuts.

Haye won rounds from Wladimir? How many was that again? 1? Haha. In a fight completely dominated by Wladimir, you use that as an argument to defend Haye? Just because he beat a fat chisora, a shot Ruiz, a clown like Valuev, a washed up Barrett, a fraud like Audley and no talent Maccarinelli, the Boxing public are supposed to get behind this overhyped bigmouth? Well actually I did feel sorry that he hurt his toe. Showed alot of pride that did, on national TV and all.

Posted September 27, 2012 9:58 pm 


Haye was the last guy to hold a piece of the HW crown and he went all 12 with Wlad in a serious borefest….He destroyed the guy that gave Vitali the most trouble in years…If Charr was worthy then ALL bets are off its anything goes as it pertains to Klitschko…. Haye brings the most money and offers a degree of legacy enhancement should Vitali put some hurt on him…What other fight in the DEAD HW division makes more sense? Povetkin vs Rahman??

Posted September 27, 2012 9:38 pm 


how dumb aand delusional are you? haye with a broken toe hahhahahaha

Posted September 27, 2012 9:35 pm 


No harm, but Haye has never beaten a quality opponent. Mormeck, Barrett, Valuev. Okay Valuev was a shareholder of the belts, yet he retired after Haye hit him 14 times, the other 2 have tried yet massively failed. I myself hate the K-domination as they bring absolutely no entertainment yet get the job done. I like Haye, until he talks. He has the goods, he can command a fortune, but why doesn’t he? One last roll of the dice, at our expense. How arrogant of him to suggest that only the Klitscko’s are worthy of HIM! When is Macklin fighting again?

Posted September 27, 2012 9:28 pm 


Klitschko can retire saying “hey I spent MOST of my relevant career having to discuss Lennox Lewis bashing my face in and pretending a rematch would have made me a certified ATG”, or he can take the best fight available against Haye and say that he tried to take on some level of risk on the way out…. Ending a career like this which is LOADED with ????????????? fighting Manuel Charr will assure Klits an HOF berth but he will mostly be forgotten when guys like Lewis, Holy, Ali, Foreman and others are mentioned and I’m not convinced beating Haye will move the needle that much but it’s the right fight for him to take if he continues…Klits is a professional and he is always in shape and ready but his list of opponents is NOT impressive despite off the wall attempts to sell them as a murderers row…His fans tremble at the thought of a small HW/Crusier possibly getting to Klits who has a MASSIVE size advantage that should give them comfort…. I would favor Vitali in the bout but the reality is that Haye is faster than anyone he has fought and the guy can hit….. If Klits can fight the YOUNGER, BIGGER Charr then why not a smaller man with some talent and a punch????

It does not qualify as an article. It is same kind of crap that come from these haters who cannot stand fighters like Mayweather and Haye who refuse to shuffle and genuflect before them. They live vicariously off of the exploits of time fortunate boxing champs like the Klitchkos.

They are angry because Haye did not go into the fight with Klitchko crazy and got himself knocked out so they could go home and masturbate happily. They live to see Mayweather or Haye humbled, so they can masturbate their egos. I hope both of those guys retire UD, so these haters could burn up with bitterness.

Why does he deserve a fight with the old VK, he wouldn’t fight him 3 or 4 years ago, and Fury beat Chisora before anyone does he deserve a fight too.

Great article, Haye because of his mouth and, arrogance and indifference is a wasted talent, either let the fists do the talking or keep talking and retire, so much for Muhhamad Ali legacy, Haye is taking this the wrong way

Posted September 27, 2012 8:13 pm 


Jeff Meyers — please retire from writing.. Haye is one of the few challengers who won rounds off Wladimir.. Even with a broken toe, leaving him unable to punch off that foot effectively, and with Wladimir leaning all over his back, Haye put in 12 rounds and caught Wladimir with the hardest punches—according to Wladimir—that Vlad’s been ripped with in many years.. Vitali said he very much wanted to “put Haye in the dust” when Haye demanded another shot at a Klitschko.. At the press conference following Vitali’s 12-round sruggle with Dereck Chisora, it was suggested to Haye that he fight Chisora and the winner fight Vitali.. Since that request Haye clobbered Chisora twice, and pinned his badass to the floor–something Vitali failed to do.. So where’s all the talk of putting Haye in the dust now?? Since Haye destroyed Chisora Vitali’s no longer interested.. Funny thing isn’t it??? Haye showed how he can punch without a broken foot. Vitali made the unknown and unaccomplished Manuel Charr his last opponent instead of Haye …. Pretty big switcheroo right there. I think Vitali is the GHOAT, but he should have made Haye his last foe. It’s only right.

Now… sometimes it makes me laugh that some commentators can’t read between the lines.
Now no one has ever stopped Vitali let alone hurt him to the extent where his legs have buckled even slightly! Haye will not KO Vitali!!! If the fight takes place in the Ukraine Haye will not get a decision which is his best chance in winning. Again you have to read into things a little more than at face value. By Haye making something bigger than it is, Vitali’s camp may relent and have the fight in Germany!

Posted September 27, 2012 7:49 pm 


he doesnt deserve a shot at vitali after the vlad fight (which to be honest i thought haye would win)
maybe beat povetkin and solis and maybe he deserves it then

Posted September 27, 2012 7:43 pm 


Vladmir K beat David Haye on points at home. To read this article you would think that he was beaten up and KO’d.

If you look at Vlad K’s record you have to go back many years to find a more closer fight than the one against Haye.

As for the comments on bottle, there speaks a man that has never got into a boxing ring before.

Of course Make huge money of what he though would be an easy win over glass chin Wlad now he goes for past his prime Vitali.Haye will never learn will he,what a clown.If the fight does happen david will complain about his pinky next haha.Hope he gets Ko’d again this time for good.

E in Denver – Haye is ranked in the top 3 or 4 and I don’t really know why. Sure, he beat a guy named Dereck Chisora, a guy who previously lost to Tyson Fury and Robert Helenius; Chisora’s KO percentage was 47%, and the last guy Dereck beat was some guy with 43 losses (no kidding). David Haye still has lots to prove.

Ideally a box off between Haye & Adamek decides who will face Vitali. Haye isn’t in a position to dictate terms. But the guy is brought up because of the lack of experienced, talent in the division. Name 3 HWs that you would rank over Haye that aren’t named Klitschko? After Haye’s performance vs. Wlad, a winner take all purse offer or a purse based on how many rounds Haye wins w/ a bonus for winning the fight seems fair.

Im not humble. Im educated. I have been around most HW and Fres has either fought or sparred just about everyone out there including Vitali. Yes I do know more than about 99% as far as HW go. Ive been around them and study them and know them. I am partial because David is one of my best friends and he talked the talk but didnt walk the walk. He admits it, I admit it. I also know that in most cases boxing is a joke, a dirty business and 99% of the time fighting has nothing to do with boxing. You are on another promoter’s card you lose no matter what barring a KO. Holyfield beat Valuev. Marco Huc beat Povetkin. Chambers beat Adamek. Pac beat Bradley. Marquez probly beat Pac. And on a final note Vitali sells tickets in Germany and Ukraine. Haye got Klits their biggest payday and he can sellout and sell TV better than them. So they can go on beating bums or they can fight Haye for money or a guy like Fres for legitimacy. Manuel Char and Maeruiryfje89jz Wach or whatever his name is just does not cut it for me.

Didn’t both Wlad and Vitali come out and say they’d fight him at Wembley but as soon as it got going, it had to be in Germany. I’m seriously sick of these internet warriors, sitting behind their blog desks while saying a lifelong fighter who’s gone to America, Germany (twice) and the outskirts of Paris to fight and to fight for titles. All the while, you are most likely a masturbating 17 year old, who would cry if someone like Haye even flinched at your face. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with him not wanting to fight in Ukraine, and I think Vitali should just STFU and take the fight in Germany or the UK – as a fan, who the F cares where the fight is held?

featherfisted Valuev , could not even
come close to hitting a fast running target . If there ever was a joke of a
” fight “, this had to be it ! Hayes tried to do this with Wlad , but all he got for his pains , was a lot of pain ( pardon the pun ) , all night long ! Oh wait , Wlad DID say he would knock Hayes out ; but he
thought he was going to have a fight
not a running circus act with a flopping seal !

Haye is looking for another easy payday.

Posted September 27, 2012 9:54 am 

Tommy Boy

David can care less if he fights or not. He is a wealthy man who will always make great money in the UK. He had one bad fight in his career (notwithstanding his early loss) to a great, experienced and cautious champion in Vlad. So he talked the talk, promoted the fight made $25 million pounds but instead of coasting like the Klits do with EZ opponents, (which he could have kept doing) he took a chance, went for broke and tried to unify the belts. So he screwed up and lost. It is not like Vlad went for broke either. I think it will be a completely different fight if its Haye vs Vitali. Fres has sparred Vitali and Vit has weaknesses. Heart and chin is not one of them but he lacks the power he once had and Vlads power. He can be hit easier and he is not the same fighter he once was. He is less agile and slower than Vlad and for sure David. Haye will connect against the less defensive brother Vitali who certainly is not cautious like his little brother. Now we never know what will happen, that’s why they fight. But given my experience and knowledge with HW, which is more extensive than 99% of boxing people out there, I do see a more competitive fight in Haye vs Klit. I was completely wrong in Haye vs Vlad but I did predict how Haye would fight and he boxed, did not go for the KO but we all have a plan on what to do but once inside that ring things change. I knew the experience Vlad had would be the only way he would win and I told this to David. Experience is key because experience makes fighters cagey in there and those losses, rounds, wins and age does not compete with being young, inexperienced and dumb thinking you can take over the world. That is why Klits fight these inexperienced young guns. They are young, big, strong, undefeated but the Klits know they are EZ wins and babes in the woods when they get in there. And so it goes until or if they get into the ring some day.

Vladimir K. vs. Haye: 118-108, 117-109, 116-110. You’re wrong. And it’s true: Haye did close to NOTHING in 12 rds. except for running and throwing two bombs that Vladimir took without any problems. Haye ran. Delboy won rounds because of his bravery and going forward through the fire. Yes, Haye defeated Chisora. True. But Delboy’s performance was better than Haye’s refusal to fight.

Exactly, this looks like the writings of an upset fan, not that of a real journalist.

The standard of articles on this site has gone downhill dramatically in recent times.

Im sure Haye with his multiple world titles,millions in the bank and pretty much intact health couldnt care less about the rambling of some glorified forum warrior.

Haye sets traps for his opponents and then capitalizes on his combination of speed and power. Wlad fights behind the jab and only opens up if little risk
When they met they both sticked to the strategy that had brought them much of success. You can blaim either of them for not doing what they promised in the press, but at the end they both fought to the best of their abilities, and Wlad turned out to be the better men. The only thing that I blaim Haye is for not trying “all or nothing” after 8 or 9 rounds, when it was clear he needed a ko
Haye does not really deserve another shot, but at the end who does? The winner of Pulev – Ustinov should be first in line, but after that why not Haye?
His excuse for not fighting in Ukrain is a bit ridiculous; I agree. Maybe there is a slight chance of getting murdered if you walk alone in the dark alleys of Kiev, but not if you go there to fight for the worldtitle

idiot g ay toeboy has already lose to klychko

If “deserving a fight with Vitali” were this hard criteria then perhaps 80% of his opponents would not be on his record…Lets get real the bar for fighting Klitschko has NOT been that high throughout his career and fighting Charr which was HORRIBLE only shows that the price of admission is cut rate…. David Haye has done MORE than enough to qualify as a Vitali opponent at this point, he was the last guy I believe to hold a piece of the HW title other than a Klits…He went a full 12 with the best HW of the era albeit he stunk out the joint, he destroyed Vitalis last viable opponent and the guy who gave Klits his hardest fight in years….Why not David Haye? and if not Haye then just retire Klitschko fighting Hasim Rahman or one of these other dead men is not going to do anything but pad and pretty padded record as it is….

This list lost all seriousness when you named Wilder. :mrgreen:

Posted September 27, 2012 7:39 am 


Vitali and K2 fans trying to back out of a live fight. Any risk over 0.01% is unacceptable to these guys – hence they fight Charr and little Adameks. Vitali has basically had two good fights, Lewis and Saunders – the rest was a joke and insult to boxing.

Author – you may want to look a little more into the Ukraine risks. I’m not saying they are all like that, but there is a problem with it. You may have noticed from the recent Football tournament in Ukraine that there was a similar concerns from footballers and fans.

Pointless Haye bashing article and trolling. No bottle? rubbish. A natural cruiserweight got in the ring with the biggest and hardest punching heavyweight out there.

Haye had no answer to the jab. Wlad had no answer for Hayes movement. Klit fans will claim it was a ‘destruction’, a ‘demolition’ or a ‘domination’. In reality it was a win by default.

Posted September 27, 2012 7:22 am 


Haye has a big mouth of that there is no doubt but to suggest he has no bottle is the sort of diatribe that comes from someone who sits safely at a distance commenting on a subject they themselves would never have the ‘bottle’ to indulge in physically.
Given all his bluster the performance against Vladimir was poor and the toe excuse was embarrassing. However we judge Haye’s ring performances on different standards from other heavyweights because of his mouth. He lost to Vladimir by some margin but it was a far tougher fight than any other recent opponent he’s faced. Haye looked worried about letting his shots go in case he got tagged but then again I didn’t see Vladimir going all out for the knockout either.
Vladimir did what he had to do to win the fight, as does Vitali and I’d suggest its easier to have bottle when you’re five inches taller and two stone heavier than most of your opponents.
We lauded Chisora for his performance against Vitali yet he lost terribly by a far wider margin than Haye had done against Vladimir. Hayes subsequent performance against Chisora proves his credentials as an extremely good heavyweight and a far more threatening opponent to Vitali than his recent conquests.
I agree if Haye truly believed in all his bluster he’d fight Vitali anywhere but he knows Vitali is a scary proposition for anyone and he’d like to reduce the number of things in his favour as much as possible.
Anyone who steps in the ring has bottle, anyone who wins a world title has bottle, anyone who gives away height and weight to two of the best heavyweights of their generation most definitely has bottle, anyone who sits at a computer and writes otherwise ought to get themselves in a ring and see how their bottle is doing!

This assertion is baseless and created to inspire a reaction, probably by some Klit appeaser. I appreciate that a lot of tubby, lank haired, weaselly web addict types and white supremacists have a deeply ingrained dislike for Haye. Haye talks a lot of cr”p and toegate was pathetic. But the guy has plenty of bottle. The guy won the unified cruiserweight titles in Paris against the French fighter, he fought Valuev in Germany, he fought Wlad in Germany. He is willing to go to Germany again to fight big Vit. The same people said he lacked the bottle to take Delbum on after their scrap – yet he did and smashed him up. The guy was pushing himself into all of this when after the same number of fights the K Bros were still fighting no marks. You window lickers can congratulate yourself figuring out that Ga y rhymes with Haye all you like but facts are facts and the Toefairy has proven his mettle on plenty of occasions. Sure, he came up short against Wlads Jab’n’Grab in a dull shut-out but in doing so he overcame physical disadvantage and made Wlad look anything but an ATG, in Germany. He’s not a bottle job at all. The hack ‘journalism’ and lack of objectivity on this site is apalling at times.

David Haye represents Vitalis only chance to retire having people speak about a contests OTHER than Lennox Lewis… His last bout was a JOKE from the moment it was announced and sadly typifies the low quality of the bulk of his opposition…However he and Haye come to terms it offers a bout with someone who has a high profile and is coming off a devastating win against a guy that Vitali defeated backpedaling and looking uncomfortable for 12 rounds…. Haye one upped his performance against Chisora by a HUGE margin…

Vitali made very hard work of Chisora ….. whereas Haye blitz’ed him. Vitali would still beat Haye though.

Posted September 27, 2012 7:06 am 

Neil (pomy)

Vitali would beat Haye imho ….. but Haye is a 100x a better opponent than the likes of Charr and Ademek. A bit harsh on Ademek there but he was hopeless against Vitali.

Message to author ….. at least try to show balance. Articles written with no objectivity at all are not worth anything. Whatever legitimate opinions you might have are lost in such one-sided nonsense.

Posted September 27, 2012 7:03 am 


Jeff Myers you have no clue! Haye KO’d Chisora who gave Vitaly all he could handle and took him the distance. Chisora probably took more rounds from Vitaly than al his other opponents since Lewis put together. You are a keyboard warrior and not deserving this form to vent your rubbish.

Posted September 27, 2012 6:57 am 


90% KO rate….ye no bite at all…

Posted September 27, 2012 6:46 am 


Why don’t we all judge fighters by their worst performance…..o and while we’re at it lets condemn Haye for effectively promoting a fight with Wlad…..let’s also ignor the fact that Haye is brave for even getting in the ring with a man who is SO much bigger than him…..then let’s casually negate the fact that Haye is a counter puncher and Wlad hardly through a punch because he didn’t want to get tagged in return and was quite happy to hold the center of the ring and win on points in a boring fight…..o wait….didn’t Wlad say he would knock Haye out?! well by this writter’s logic he must have no bottle too then…

Posted September 27, 2012 6:43 am 


Haye destroyed a fighter who everyone knows beat the European champ and gave the world champ a tough fight…….guess what that equates to earning a title shot…..stop hating!

Posted September 27, 2012 6:37 am 


Kirk: sure styles makes fights, but i dont see haye slugging it out with Vitali, and i dont see Haye outworking and outpointing Vitali. Sure he could catch Vitali with a big punch, but i doubt that Haye could do what Lennox or Sanders wasnt able to do, even though they caught him with some clean and powerfull shots. IHaye would more likely use the same strategy as he did against Wladimir, and maybe he will land some more punches. Im fine with Haye getting a title fight, i just want him to earn it by beating a topranked fighter.

Posted September 27, 2012 6:28 am 


Does Haye deserve a fight with Vitail…. It seems vital thinks so and the fight should take place in his home land. The author and some posters are missing the point… both champs are discussing a fight between them…. Haye is just stating he will not fight in Ukraine. You have to ask yourself who proposed the Ukraine as the destination for the fight to happen…. LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS NOT HAYE… and apparently Vitail and his team thinks Haye might deserve the right to share a ring with him…. And as Vitail is the one getting in the ring… it’s his thoughts that count and on one else’s.

Kirk…. well said!!

What right does Haye have to grace the same ring as the Klitschko brother ? Please Mr Haye try rebuild you’re name after the whole Chisora thing by maybe giving us Brits a non pay-per-view all British affair against the deserving Pryce or even fury.

Since when was bravado a bad thing in boxing? Whether it is bad or good, it provides entertainment. As for having bottle, he makes a living by being a professional boxer not pushing pencils and starting a tirade about someone. We all know he was crap against Wlad but for a couple of mill id love to get knocked out by vitali.

Bill (KlichKO brothers are the best REAL HEAVYWEIGHTS ever)

In my opinion Davey Ga y has to fight guys like Arreola, Price, Fury, Povetkin, Boytsov, Stivern, Adamek, Chambers, Wilder, Jennings, Mitchell etc…Honestly, Ga y didn’t deserve another KlichKO fight. He is all bark, no bite.

Probably the worst written article I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading. It sounds more like a drunken, incoherent rambling. I’m surprised they put it on the site.

its a shame that they would let an article like this be posted on this site.. i would have done a million times better

Posted September 27, 2012 3:52 am 


Clearly – CLEARLY – it’s an attempt to rile Vitali into a fight. If the author of the article can’t see that, he realyl shouldn’t be masquerading as a boxing “analyst”.

Posted September 27, 2012 3:45 am 


How does this qualify as an article? There are more coherent and perceptive posts in the forum for heaven’s sakes.
