Ok your entitled to your opinion and I enjoy a debate, it just seemed to be nonsensical to be referred to as “delusional” because I’m from England, not that I’m thin skinned or anything and took the comment to heart.
In regards to your though on British boxing, your a little of the mark in my opinion. Whilst the likes of Haye and Amir Khan take a large amount of the publicity we have some exciting talent. Most noticeably Derik Chisora.
Hayes thought big fights, my favourite was the fight against John Ruiz, were he made a VERY well respected fighter look like very little. Even his only loss to Carl Thompson was a good fight, dominating in the open rounds but ending up punching himself out. A smarter Haye now a days would win that fight.
Irrespective of if people think I or the brits are favouring our fighter, I’ve heard neutrals all over regard Haye as an incredibly exciting fighter. [/quote]
See, this is why people are calling you delusional…
First of all, calling Dereck Chisora an exciting talent is so widely off the mark that, where this an archery competition, you would have taken someone’s eye out. Dereck Chisora may be a ggreat fighter when it comes to biting some guy’s dick off in an alley, or beating his girlfriend’s face to a pulp, but he’s not a great fighter in the ring. In fact, he’s not even a good fighter. In fact, he makes Primo Carrera look like Muhammed Ali. I mean what is his claim to fame? Beating some guy who barely beat some guy who may have driven a cab?
Now on to John Ruiz. Who apparently was a VERY well respected fighter. Well I got new for you son. He wasn’t. In fact, not only was he a categorically mediocre fighter but he was an old categorically mediocre fighter. A bunny rabbit hit by a pick-up truck would have offered as much resistance to David Haye.
And finally we reach your statement that neutrals “all over” regard David Haye as an exciting fighter. If you mean all over England, you are correct. But if you mean all over the world you should bear in mind that in several places the name David Haye is synonomous with “The Ducker”. Now don’t get me wrong, Haye is fast, and fit, and he likes to throw leather… BUT he has fought absolutely no-one even approaching the level of a Klitschko. So if you’re going to watch the fight I suggest leaving the cans at home and bring a pallbearer.
