Funny to hear Haye's excuses after the fight about his foot injury. I admit Klitschko might not be the most entertaining heavyweight to watch but his style is very hard to handle. He has such a great weight advantage and his reach is impressive too. It made it hard for Haye to get close to him.
actually Haye has a reach advantage. He has a 27" reach while Klitschko's reach is listed at 26". The real problem in this particular case was the height. Klitschko had a 3" height advantage and a 1" reach DISadvantage. Meaning Haye had about 2" of extra room to try and punch in an upwards fashion or lunging fashion to even reach Klitcshko.
i thought it was a boring fight really... It seemed like Haye didn't want to throw! If Haye can't beat the younger one, what makes him think he's gonna beat the bigger and stronger Older brother? haha
