comment on the article

Just booked my tickets for the Haye/Value fight and I can’t wait. I really hope Haye goes to town on him. Haye is a good boxer with some speedy hands and a big punch. I appreciate that Valuev is like a large tree and seemingly can’t be KTFO but I don’t think he has beaten anyone near Haye’s class.
My biggest worry is that Haye gets carried away early doors and then the big ogre just cuddles and saps Haye’s energy resulting in a similar result to the Carl Thompson fight.
Anyway, if anyone knows where the parties are going to be at after the fight let me know ;-)

I would love Haye to knock Valuev’s head off because I really want to know how much Valuev’s spud head weighs?! I have a 3 ˝ year old nephew and reckon he weighs less than Valuev’s spud!

james, have a look at the original comment and realise that you also are struggling here. He was trying to say "you are".
What any of this has to do with my original point is beyond me. Anyway, I still think Valuev is the most entertaining boxing around, I am from planet earth and am certainly not a grammar geek ;)
Good try though mate

I must add however, 'most entertaining boxing around' - you need to get out more!

Leaving Frankfurt in 50 minutes and heading to Nuremburg. Can't wait. Hoping for the ref to not let Valuev hold too much. Also hoping that haye doesn't break his hand on that beast's head when the hayemaker starts to land.

You are going to see why Valuev has been my favourite boxer for years. He will come forward relentlessly, and when Haye tires, and has no power left, Valuev is going to make him and his big mouth look stupid. Just my humble prediction :)

The market is closing towards Valuev, it seems strange. The hype around his size is playing a part in this, but most of that hype has come from Haye. The other source is from the question "what if Haye punches himself out?"
David Haye would be faster than Valuev even if he punched himself out to the point he could only throw 5 punches a round.

In summary, Haye at nearly evens, put your house on it and buy yourself a second home.

Well check my last post out?! I said he might hurt his hand. Well done David Haye. Atmosphere last night was great during and after the fight. Bring on Ruiz in London and then a megadeal showdown with the K brothers (not both on the same night)!

Listened to the fight on the radio. Doesn't sound like Valuev achieved a great deal, but the truth is he was never going to test Haye overly cos he just aint very good, and he was never gonna be entertaining.

Just got back from a week in the canary islands :)so have no idea how the fight went. Anyone shed some light? Great news for Britain and David Haye that he is now the champion. I wish him well for the future because he certainly can back up his mouth. Wander where Valuev goes from here because he still has plenty to offer?
