Fight Notes: 

After three years of talking trash, WBA Heavyweight Champion David Haye finally gets in the ring with IBF and WBO Champion Wladimir Klitschko to unify their titles in the most anticipated fight for the division since the retirement of Lennox Lewis. Despite the hype, both men fight very timidly, with Haye only taking chances in the third and fourth rounds to catch Klitschko with a few big leaping shots to the head. After Klitschko buckles his knees with a one-two late in the fifth round, Haye spends the rest of the night complaining to Referee Gino Rodriguez every time Wladimir puts a glove on him, which results in Klitschko losing a questionable point for pushing in the seventh round but also a point deduction for Haye on what is certainly not a knockdown but another push in the eleventh. A spirited twelfth round from both men is the closest the fight ever comes to the classic is it supposed to be, and Klitschko wins a landslide unanimous decision to finally shut Haye's mouth.

Champion97's picture

David Haye got a bit of a thumping here, he was very arrogant, very disrespectful before the fight, he made himself look very silly, and divulging the broken toe, that was definitely not clever.
Haye moved well, showed great hand speed, good reflexes, good head movement, but he couldn't bait Klitschko in, make him walk onto something, and as soon as Klitschko had established his jab, established his ability to control the range, Haye couldn't do anything other than gamble, and because he puts so much into every single shot he throws, he began to tire after 5 or 6 rounds, going down so many times didn't help either, it takes a lot out of you to keep getting up. Haye didn't want to engage with Klitschko, blow to blow, he could keep himself out of harms way, but you don't win a fight by keeping yourself away from punches, if you have no success yourself, and that was what happened, Haye couldn't work around the reach disadvantage. Klitschko, ultimately, won by a landslide, Haye not only lost, but he didn't do better than Samuel Peter, he didn't do much better than Sultan Ibragimov, and apart from 2 very good right hands, one in round 3, one in round 12, Haye didn't really have any success at all, and even in those rounds, which I do think he won because the rounds were narrow enough that one very good shot could be crucial, he could have lost them, they could have been scored to either fighter, round 3, for me, was the hardest round of the fight to score.

Haye did have a broken toe, granted, but Klitschko was not made to put everything into the fight, he wasn't made to get out of first gear for much of the fight at all, and had he had more of a gritty performance brought out of him, I don't think the fight would have gone much better for Haye, then again, you never know with a puncher like Haye, and Klitschko, hit him on his chin, and he might fall, and Haye's ability to fire that right hand was compromised by that toe injury, all ifs and buts though, and he got beaten in a scrappy, one sided fight.

dizzy's picture

People usually criticize Klitschko for being dominant in a weak era of the HW division (and I don't say it was really that strong), but Haye is arguably top-3 CW of all time, his run in that division was spectacular and HOF worthy, and his dominant win over prime Chisora only shows what a great fighter Haye was before injuries took its toll. However, Haye didn't do much better than any other Wlad's opponent, he won some rounds (3rd, maybe even 7th and 12th) and landed two solid overhand rights, but was overall completely shut down and dominated by Wladimir.

Champion97's picture

I disagree on Haye, I think he was always overrated, had power, was explosive, fast, but he gasses, has never had a good chin, wasn't technically as good as people said. I think Holyfield, Usyk were much better than he ever was, but I think as well, a prime Lebedev, and some other good cruiserweights. I think Chisora was at his best after the Haye fight, up until after Fury beat him the second time.

dizzy's picture

While the gassing thing might be true, I wouldn't call his chin bad considering his only losses came due to either gassing out, injuries or Wladimir. And while his technique is flawed, he made it out with some crazy speed and athleticism. You may not like his style, but Haye held 3 CW titles out of 4 (plus The Ring and lineal title, so basically 5 out of 6), which is something that can't be said about 99% of the former CW champions including Lebedev, Huck, Nelson etc. He had to do something right. Also, your last sentenced sounds kinda strange - Chisora hasn't faced anyone of note in the mentioned span of time besides maaaybe Kevin Johnson to say "he was at his best". Of course he's gonna look good against regional-level opposition.

Champion97's picture

He was down a lot of times in his career, I don't think he has a weak chin to the extent of David Price, Malik Scott, but I don't think he has a good chin because when he took a clean shot, flush on the chin, he didn't hold up well. True, and he is a good fighter, but I just think being a two weight world champion, holding 3 belts, makes him look a better fighter than he was, and he wouldn't have been a 3 belt champion had he been in a stronger era. I think Lebedev and Huck would have beaten a prime Haye.

Chisora, in 2012-14, was the balance of young, fresh enough, miles hadn't caught up to him at all, but he was experienced at that point, if you watch his fights, he was faster, sharper than he is now. I think Chisora was at his between Haye and Pulev.
