Me old Mate Marra - Again you tell it how it is ! Nothing like world class live fight.... I do miss the big fights here in Sydney, I am stuck watching Mundane knock out powder puffs. I am Glad to hear you and the boys kept your cash in your pocket for this one. It was never going to be a Joe V Kessler
Fraudly thought he could hang on for 7 rounds and do what Carl Thompson did and come to the party after Haye was blowing. Two problems with that.....
1) Haye was kid when he punched himself out back then and he is far more conditioned complete fighter. Fighting at a more mature pace.
2) Carl Thompson was a warrior with a good chin with near supernatural powers of recovery and was only too happy to have a war... Dragging the young Hay into the trenches.....Saturday night Haye was never going to punch himself out against Fraudly cowering and backtracking with a high guard. He was expending no gas at all stalking him ready to unload.
Fraudly had one chance... A punchers chance, to come out blazing round 1, like he did against Williams 2nd fight and sprott 1 st fight....!
In those two fight he won one with a great stopage and an got countered and sparked in the second. The point is he rolled the dice and was threat in both fights because he was using his size and power. If he had done that on Sat he would of very likely got counter and stopped however he would of had a small chance and he would of made a fight of it for the fans. He could of slumped off into retirement knowing he never made it but he gave it a go. Now he will be rembered as a joke.
I will be intrested to hear what everyone thinks we learned from Haye on Sat ? Is he Ready for a pair of Kilts ? Did he look better at his new skinny 15 stone ? or do we want him up at 16 stone or even heavier ? Will the brothers be worried at the new smaller Haye ?
