Klitschko v Haye

Anyone else watch it? Great fight.

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.

I'm a HUGE Klitchko fan, and was planning to go to the Ukrainian Bar to see it, but had issues with my tire ((((

Unlucky! I have a lot of respect for the guy too. Haye was talking a lot of shit before the fight and now just looks like an idiot. Don't get me wrong Haye did win a couple of rounds IMO but he just wasn't able to land anything on Klitschko to do serious damage.

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

I'm 100% sure Klitschko had the reach advantage. I'm sure it was 78in v 81in.

after looking back... it seems you are correct. But i do know for a fact that HBO put it up on their Tale of the Tape as how i listed it cause i even paused the DVR and started a conversation with my friends wondering why Haye had a longer reach than Klitschko.
