    Official - Wladimir Klitschko vs David Haye / Boxing. - Official

    Looking forward to the fight.

    Hayes looking nervous here, but has still got the gift of the gab.

    Hayes toughest fight so far, Klitschko will wear him down but i reckon Hayes fitness will come through. If Haye doesn't pull anything special out of the hat then my bets are on Wladimir.

    I'm hoping for a klitschko win personally, but I feel Hayes speed and power will be victorius.

    Come on wlad

    I'm hoping Klitschko beats seven shades of **** out of him.

    Loving Klitschko right now; the man just oozes class!

    Haye has been a right idiot beyond measure and Vlad has simply been strolling around winning over fans.

    Haye has wanted to rile him and that's been achieved, will the Kazakh go all out or being the psychologist he is, simply play his game ?.

    The first proper Heavyweight title in a while.

    This should be a corker!

    Big boxing fan, I don't mind Haye, he has a glassy chin but is the first to admit it. Has good power though,stamina (Nope), to be honest though it proves how crap the heavy weight division is that we have to depend on a cruiser weight to move up and shake it up. The Klitschko's I find terribly boring but you cant deny how good they are at pulling out victories, battle of the minds, Klitschko's are very smart,Adam Booth is very canny, for the good of boxing Haye wins. Heavy weight boxing doesn't quite excite me like it should though

    They certainly knows how to apply that PhD in Sports Science; grind or bore the opponent down!

    Prediction: Probably Haye on points.

    He speaks too much trash though IMO, whereas Klitschko comes across as the respectful one.

    I'm warming to Wladamir. I want Haye to win because he's English but he doesn't have to be such a bell end lol.

    I agree.

    Will always stick with English boxers over any other country. But I'm starting to like Klitschko, seemed very calm in the HBO face-off and very respectful.

    Think it will be a very good fight, with Haye winning on points up to the 5th round, but Wladamir will get a deserving win.

    My first reaction to all this was that Haye is an idiot, Klitschko is a class act and I want Wladimir to win.

    But then two things occurred to me.

    Firstly, the Klitschkos have been poison to an already poor heavyweight division. They're boring, uninspiring fighters who any fighter brought up on Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis or even Rocky Balboa must despise. Fortunately, they've led to the rise of UFC.

    But more importantly, without Haye's mouthiness and disrespect he wouldn't have got this fight. He's also exactly right about bringing Wladimir out of his comfort zone. You HAVE to do that in a fight, and Booth is starting to remind me of Mourinho in the sense that he puts a psychological advantage ahead of being liked or popular.

    Plus they have to sell the fight and Haye is doing a good job of that. So I would say to people who think he is being disrespectful that yes he is, but I think there is a method to his madness.

    This fight reminds me of Ivan Drago Vs Rocky.

    As in, Klitschko will wear Haye down none stop with his jab-jab-jab-right, Hayes the fastest boxer Wlad has ever fought so will be moving around the ring continuously throwing the odd roundhouse punch in here and their wearing him down with his speed. Until either Haye gets on the end of one of Wlads Big heavy punches or vice-versa.

    Both good fighters in my opinion, but both haven't fought good enough fighters to prove themselves.
    both Klitschkos fights are hand picked to suit themsleves, i dare say all have been slow, boring etc.
    But been good knockouts and good wins.

    Whereas Haye is very similar, he brings a Naseem Hamed style cockyness to each fight (which does liven up the ''very dull'' Heavyweight division) but hasn't fought any decent strong fighters in their prime,(ie. they have mostly been class B & C).

    Respect to them both though as they are both the best fighters out there in their division/class.
    Will be a very good fight.

    Hats off to the winner.

    The biggest problem with Haye is that he has already said he will retire in October. Fair enough for wanting to get out when you're still healthy, but it's bad for boxing and bad for his legacy.

    He goes out having beaten Klitschko and he becomes the 'what if?' man. If he loses then he's remembered as a cocky fighter with a decent record. Either way, the heavyweight division is still weak.

    I remember a couple of months ago Haye was talking trash about the fight. It was pretty pathetic. He was pulling the whole tough guy routine, but it failed due to his stammering. Made him look like a complete fool.

    If he backs it up, no-one cares.

    Talking trash has been in boxing for ever.. If Haye can genuinely wind up Wlad then it will be better for him.

    Also it gets the fight more noticed so more £££££

    Basically rush on to him and he starts shaking.

    That should be the plan.

    Mayweather uses retirement to increase his fight purse, and I wouldn't be surprised if haye doesn't do the same if he wins.
