Deontay Wilder really giving it to David Haye in sparring action

By Scott Gilfoid: In just watching a little bit of sparring action between unbeaten 6’7″ heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (29-0, 29 KO’s) and David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) in training camp, you could see that Haye was really taking some vicious head shots from Deontay in training footage from

Haye did not look good in getting nailed by Deontay. Haye and Deontay weren’t playing around at all, because both guys were swinging for the fences. It’s a good thing that Haye was wearing head gear and Wilder extra large gloves because I don’t think that Haye would last long with Deontay nailing him the big fight hands that he was hitting him with.

I hate to say it but Haye’s sparring sessions with Wilder will likely be much better than the actual Haye vs Tyson Fury fight on September 28th because Fury doesn’t Deontay’s speed, power or athleticism. The two are world’s apart in the power department.

I’d like to see Haye fight Deontay in the ring because this sparring looked pretty interesting. Haye was landing some big shots of his own, but Deontay was able to cover up after getting hit clean by some big right hands. Once Wilder was covered up, he came storming back and nailed Haye with some shots that are far better than the big bombs that Wladimir Klitschko was landing on Haye. I mean, there’s no comparison really.

Wladimir fought like he was afraid to let his hands go against Haye for fear of being countered by him, but Deontay had no fears whatsoever in throwing his biggest bombs. Deontay looked really quick because I’m not used to seeing Haye get hit so cleanly. Deontay was like a cobra in landing his big right hands. Haye was too slow to react and he kept getting nailed once the first big shot from Deontay hit him. I have no doubts that if this was an actual fight, Deontay would knock Haye out in the 1st round. He’s just too powerful for him.

Haye is getting the best sparring that money can buy for this training camp. He’s got Deontay, Mariusz Wach and Alexander Dimentrenko. Heck, all three of them would beat Tyson Fury without any problems.
