David Haye Vs Nikolay Valuev

David Haye Vs Nikolay Valuev

Click Here For the David Haye Vs Nikolay Valuev Weigh In

David Haye has arrived in Germany today, with just under a week to go until he faces the biggest test of his boxing career. He looked very tired and said he had been up since very early to catch the flight. Haye also did not finish training until 1am, then having to eat food etc. Haye still was nice enough to fight the sleep deprivation to let the press interview him, and he also signed some autograpths for the fans.

Ok, with that said back to the fight. David Hayes trainer has said Haye will try to knock out Valuev, thats what his aim is. Adam Booth said that Haye always goes for the knockout and this fight will be no different.

Personally i think this is the wrong kind of tactics to use against Nikolay Valuev. He has never been stopped, he has never even been down. I was watching a video on Youtube the other day titled "Valuev Can Take It", and i must say, Valuev was taking some brutal shots to the face (this was earlier in his career when he had less experience and less boxing skills), but he did not go down! Valuev can take some serious punches. I can not see David Haye knocking Valuev out. David Haye has power, but it should not be overated.

With David Haye going for a knock out, Haye could actually punch himself out and get knocked out himself. This is what i beleive will happen. Haye is too trigger happy, he wants to trade punches with the beast, if he does that will be the end for David Haye. He needs to fight with controlled aggression, something Haye does not really do very well. If Haye does not fight the type of fight tactics that the legend Evander Holyfield used, but with more aggression, and being prepared to take a few more risks he will lose. Saying that, i don't think Haye could fight that fight if he wanted to: Haye does not have fast footwork, not when it comes to jumping in and out. When he has fought that way in the past he has tired very quickly, and that was against opponents half the size of Valuev.

Valuev is just too big to stand in front of and trade punches with. David Haye does not have the chin to take Valuevs big tree trunk arms in the face. David Haye does not have the chin, stamina, or ring craft of even an older Evander Holyfield, and i think maybe David  Haye knows this, and that is why he is going to go all out for the knockout. The other reason being that he knows he wont get the decision is Germany if the fight goes the distance. Haye is playing a very dangerous game, could he be the first man to knock Valuev out? Well, this is heavyweight boxing, anything can happen, but i think the chances are slim.

My prediction for this fight is: David Haye comes out strong, trading with Valuev for the first 4 - 5 rounds. Valuev gets rocked but does not go down. Valuev uses his weight to lean on David Haye through the next few rounds, landing his own punches on Hayes suspect head and chin. By around the 9th - 10th David Haye is all out of steam, Valuev knocks Haye out through Haye's sheer exhaustion. Either that or Haye's corner refuse to let Haye come out for the end part of the fight.

I would love David Haye to win by KO to be honest. But i can't let my heart rule my head. If David Haye, from the start of the fight goes for the knockout, he will lose this fight by either KO, or just being so tired he's falling all over the place and the referee stops the fight.

Just to let you know, the fight starts at about 9pm, or just after 9pm UK time. I beleive coverage starts at 8pm though. Don't miss it!

**Quick Update**

David Haye's camp are not happy. The mind games have started. Valuev's promoter has put the Haye camp in a hotel too far out of town, far away from anything, shops, people etc. David Haye was not happy about this and Adam Booth (Haye's trainer) had to find them another Hotel.

Nikolai Valuev to win. Odds are good

david haye is gonna change from his normal stance as a righty to southpaw in the middle of the bout.

Chagaev is southpaw. the only guy to beat goliath

herbie said...

Guaranteed, the Klitschkos will be watching this fight closely.

Rummy said...

The press, Haye and his whole camp. All have painted Valuev to look almost unbeatable. Giant of a guy, 1 loss. never been ko'd or down. Truth is, they know he's slow, not at his best, not in his prime, and cant punch that great. They have played a good game because when haye beats valuev, it will look like much more of an acheivement then what it really is, boosting him to the top of the heavyweight rankings...In line for fights against Vitali and Wladimir.

Everyone wants haye to lose. They hate his big mouth. Most tickets were sold to people that want to see haye kiss canvas.

My only concern is can haye last the distance against such a heavyweight mamoth of a man that comes after you none stop. monte barrett couldnt keep him off. haye wont as well

valuev is more skilled than people give him credit for. David haye will be shocked. It looks to me like haye has underestimated valuev.

Many doubted haye, even me. i thought the decision was not fair, valuev was the fighter trying to make a fight of it. Haye ran mostly all night. Full respect to him he did do it.
