Haye defeats Valuev: Look familiar?

By Dennis Broadhurst: After watching Haye win a twelve round decision last night over Valuev I was hardly inspired. Haye just ran and ran and only hit Valuev about three times every round. Valuev himself showed how bad he is, how little power he has and proved how boring he is. Haye showed good head movement and ring movement but he didn’t follow it up with anything.

It was clear that Haye was the dancer and looked pretty much intimidated by Valuev and Valuev was just a plodding caveman, this reminded me of Dirrell vs Froch, one man running the other man plodding forward and swinging all over the place. The only thing different was that the caveman lost.

If we continue to see fights like this then boxing will die. They are boring fights with very little action and no knockouts, please fighters show some bottle and slug it out! It also came to my attention with all this dancing and mouthing that Haye was trying to imitate the great Muhammad Ali, this failed because 1) The public have seen it before and 2) Haye didn’t follow his dancing up, Ali used to throw loads of punching even while he was dancing away (Watch Ali vs Williams 1966).

I hope Valuev retires and I can see Haye being toppled by Klitschko (either one). Well done for winning Haye but next time put on a better show.
