Klitschko Haye, After the dramatic destruction of the talk, what we get from David Haye Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday night was 12 rounds of boxing hit and run one of the missing ingredients. Haye was disappointing; Klitschko was fighting expertise and waited heavyweight title proved a fiasco. (“Wake me when the fight starts,” HBO’s Larry Merchant said laconically wise in the eighth assault.)
More Sky Sports, do you really listen to the study team to describe the performance of Haye as brave? To me, Tommy Farr was brave going 15 rounds with Joe Louis and make a fight of it, Don C**kell survive brutal beatings and taking Rocky Marciano in the ninth assault, or Danny Williams is harvested from the canvas four times before being removed after eight rounds against Vitali Klitschko unilateral. Haye’s performance against the youngest of the brothers Klitschko was more the character of Joe Bugner going 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali, except that Bugner heard the final bell through cover behind a defense shell, while Haye did get on your bike.
It’s hard not to evaluate the performance of hard Haye. For months – or years it was? – Haye has been saying to the world of boxing that was going to demolish the Klitschko brothers. Klitschko even asked one of their face to face if the tower would be willing to Ukraine to meet him at the center of the ring and fight. However, when Klitschko advanced in the sound of the opening bell, Haye began to move away from him as fast as he could.
Klitschko was the broken toe Haye-made excuse for their lack of aggressiveness with disdain, perhaps with reason. Elite soldiers of the “war damage” as they say in the trade and often find a way to win.
Larry Holmes went into his fight with Ken Norton suffered a biceps injury, Floyd Patterson fought with a broken right hand for perhaps the last six rounds in his first fight with Tommy “Hurricane” Jackson, Ali was something and 10 rounds with a broken jaw in the first fight with Ken Norton.
Haye strategy seemed to be to keep out of the way Klitschko and try to get lucky with a big knot right. Most harvesters were missing Hayemaker wild, but that seemed to shake his biggest rival the few times I connected, and no doubt Klitschko was battered in the final round to feel the need to hold. However, the fight ended as it began, Haye Klitschko chase around the ring.
Am I missing something here? Haye Klitschko said he wanted right in front of him, got his wish, and yet, in essence, he rescued from the fighting.
Look, if anyone, in any field is going to talk the talk they have to be prepared for criticism if they do not walk the walk.
Haye did not want to be knocked down, and therefore to go 12 rounds could be called a moral victory of any kind – but only if you ignore all the over-the-top trash talk. As said Klitschko, Haye had mocked rival beyond the big man for failing to fight aggressively and later adopted the same pattern of survival – “super-defensive,” as stated Klitschko.
Larry Merchant called the action of the Haye “humiliating” although it seemed slightly amused by frequent British boxer thrown from his hands and knees, suggesting that Haye had turned the arena into a “flop house.”
Although Klitschko took to win, now I feel ashamed for suggesting that it was a dangerous fight for him. And yet, watching the coverage of HBO, I really thought Haye was an opportunity for the early rounds – but then it was as if he quietly retired from combat. There were a lot of feints, but very little fighting – Haye was simply “moves” like the old days of British boxing chapters would say. To paraphrase the title of an old comedy film Peter Sellers, who was the mouth that does not roar?
