Vitali's not getting any younger or better. Wasn't particularly convincing against Chisora. Haye can use the lesson of the Wlad loss to his advantage.

Somebody needs to make it look like Wlad ****ed Vitali's wife or something so we get a decent fight.

Helenius lost all 12 rounds against Chisora, no way he is number 3.

Lol at even mentioning david haye. He embarrassed himself already, and his resume at hw consists of a shot ruiz, a journeyman bum and a not even journeyman bum.

Oh and valuev in where he did worse than shot holyfield and got lucky to escape with a w.

Surely Haye is never going to be able to get a license now anyway.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Theres 200+ Countries. He can get a license in 1 of them if he don't get 1 in the UK

Stupid to ban him for a one off incident

He will probably break a tooth or damage a fingernail b4 the fight anyways

snoozefest, the brothers should retire. **** it, just scrap the HW division.

Mormec is a ***** quitting ****er.

Tyson ****ing Fury, they have to be messing about.

What good would it do to have the only decent fighters in the division retire?

The rest will still be fat and unathletic, or in shape but with weak pinkytoes.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

the bums will be more competitive v each other without them.

50k fans in the stadium were suckered in, it was a farce and very very boring, i'm sorry i wasted my time on it.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

so it's better to see the "competitive" bums fight for a made up title than to just see them fight each other without a title? The only difference would be their ******ed fights would have a WBC/WBA/IBF/WBO fee attached to it.

They dont care if the fight is competitive or not, they just want to see one of the brothers fight and win. They got exactly what they were looking for.

I suspect that the fact that there is two of them hurts their legacy. If it was just one person completely dominating the HW division like this they would be lauded for their greatness, rather than the division as a whole being seen as weak. I mean, who was around when Tyson was in his heyday? A washed up Larry Holmes, and that's about it.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Tyson was exciting to watch, these guys bore the balls off me.

i'm in no real mood to talk about them either and if i had the power they'd never fight again unless it was v each other.

--

the other guy on the show, Olafabi (?) fought a Russian dude that was wayyyyyyy smaller than him, another joke fight.

compare this with the UFC show last night and it is no contest for quality and excitement.

lol mmm.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Haye will knock out Vitali or stop him in the same way Lennox did.

I truly believe Haye's ego is too big for him not to fight again after the Wladimir debacle.

Fans will only remember that fight when they talk about Haye and Haye just wont accept that.

Haye will come back and fight Vitali and this time he will just go out there and have a right go ...

Win or lose ... fans will know he had a go this time and will accept it far better than what happened in his previous fight.

Haye is the only guy out there right now that has the tools to beat a Klitchko.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Yeah if Haye fights Vitali like Lennox did it's over in the first round. Hayes chin makes Wladimir look sturdy.

No idea why people have this idea about Haye. What are the tools he gonna beat the klitschkos with? He's a low-volume counterpuncher with questionable skills. What he does have is great athleticism.

No idea what would be good about Haye = the hw champ either. He's just as boring when he fights. Good salesman i guess.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

There is a reason why Haye wanted Wlad over Vitali all these years. He matches up so bad against Vitali and he knows it. Purely taking this fight for the payday (nothing wrong with that) but he doesn't have a hope of beating Vitali. I don't care how old he is.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Yep if Vitali is borderline top100, chinny and won't throw a punch. Maybe.

Only chance Haye ever had against Vitali is if he's just grown too old to compete. I don't think that will happen this year. Haye just doesn't have a good style to beat either Klitschko, and with Vitali he can't hope for that single good punch like he could against Wladimir.
Vitali must have one of the best chins of the hw champs in history.

But i would prefer Vitali vs. Haye over pretty much any other Vitali vs. x. Just because it will be somewhat of an event out of it.
With that said Haye is not an exciting or spectacular fighter. Him becoming "the champ" wouldn't save the division in any way. He's a good heel but nothing more.

Personally i hope we get Chisora vs. Haye. That fight is competitive and almost as big as Vitali vs. Haye.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Vitali looked pretty poor against Chisora ... and lets face it .. Chisora is nothing special.

Imo ... Haye destroys Chisora .. and Haye would not even bother coming back to face him.

It was good to see old Skelton back in the ring ... saying that ... how poor was Dallas ??

He was so bad ... you actually felt sorry for him .. the poor guy just did not want to be there ... time to look for another job me thinks ... i would be surprised if he ever fought again.
