Now that the fight has been signed for May 2nd, unfortunately for me in Las Vegas, how do you guys see the Hatton V Pacquiao fight panning out?
I am a huge fan of both fighters and I am drooling at the prospect of watching them fight. I see the fight being much much closer then Pacquiao's last fight and could actually see Hatton stopping Pacquiao late on with relentless body shots. Having said that, I think it depends on Hatton getting cut...he hasnt been cut too badly recently which is a good sign but if he gets cut early, I can see him being stopped due to that. Let me know what you guys think. Peace.
Thanks for all your comments guys/(girls?). I am in agreement with the majority, in seeing that the Klitschko brothers possess too much power for the "Hayemaker"...although I would love him to KO both. I am in agreement with the previous comment, which suggested that Haye had to act the way he has in order to get to fight either Klitschko. Haye is vulnerable as we have seen, but it will be very interesting to see how his speed makes a difference, if you look at the Klitschko's recent fights, they haven't fought many people with the speed that Haye possesses. Many didnt think that would be enough for the Pacman against De La Hoya, weight drained or not. I think his speed would have a significant impact if he fights as a counter puncher..who knows how he will react when he gets caught however...
In addition to reading Clive Bernath's article titled "Be Careful What You Wish For, David" I wanted to post my thoughts and see what you guys thought. I am a fan of the "Hayemaker" but I can't help but think that fighting Vitali or Wladimir in his next fight would indeed be too much too soon. Haye has got a lot of talent, and is an extremely powerful puncher but I think that fighting either Klitschko brother is aiming a bit too high at this stage. In my opinion, Haye needs more time to settle into the division before he takes on either of the brothers. Haye has never fought anyone of the size or power of the Klitschko's, and I think they would be too much for him at this stage. I think Wladimir would be an easier fight for him, given the history of his chin, but I am struggling to see Haye himself take a solid jab from either, let alone a proper power punch...I hope he proves me wrong, but thats my thoughts!
