Deontay Wilder and Mariusz Wach join David Haye in UK for sparring

David Haye Deontay Wilder Tyson FuryBy Scott Gilfoid: American heavyweight Deontay Wilder and Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach have joined David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) in the UK to start assisting him with sparring for a couple of weeks for his September 28th fight against big 6’9” Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) at the Manchester Arena in the UK.

Haye has already been sparring with Alexander Dimitrenko and Richard Towers, but now Haye is getting a big upgrade in the power department with Deontay and Wach.

Haye says he wants to conquer the styles of these fighters so that he can be ready for Fury, but I don’t think he’s going to have much luck conquering Deontay’s fighting style; unless it’s one of those things where Haye takes a beating, and gives a different picture of what took place in the sparing session. I don’t think anyone can conquer Deontay’s fighting style right now, so Haye can pretty much forget all about doing that.

Having big punchers like Deontay and Wach in Haye’s camp is really overkill to the extreme for him. It’s like bringing in a sledgehammer to pound in a tiny nail.

Haye doesn’t need these guys to help him out with the slapping Fury. He could have found any light hitting 2nd tier heavyweight to do the job. I mean, the whole idea behind sparring for a fight is to get guys that are similar to the person you’re supposed to be fighting. Deontay and Wach are worlds apart from the fighting style of Fury.

When you take away all the power and speed from Deontay, what you have left would still be too much for someone like Fury. You don’t use a one-punch knockout artist like Deontay to get you ready for a feather-fisted slapper like Fury.

I don’t know what Haye was thinking when he came up the brilliant idea to get Deontay to help him. How can Deontay help Haye other than blasting him around the ring with power shots that Fury would never be able to approximate?

I just hope Haye doesn’t get hurt by one of Deontay’s big right hand shots, because even though Deontay will be wearing big 16 ounce gloves, he’ll still be able to knock the sense out of Haye when he connects with his head shots. Of course, I’m sure Deontay has problem been given firm instructions to take off 75% of his power so that he doesn’t brain Haye.

Deontay is a super heavyweight, while Haye is just a pumped up cruiserweight. Deontay is a much bigger puncher than Haye, and he’s capable of hurting him even with a glancing blow. That’s why Deontay is probably going to have to go easy on Haye so that he doesn’t hurt before his big fight.
