I know that I will probably get a barracking for this article but something inside me feels that David Haye will NOT be World Champion after November 7th.
I really hope he does win against Valvev but I have a bad feeling that he won’t be able to last 12 rounds.
The main attribute that Haye possesses is speed which we all know.
But this speed has been proven at Cruiserweight, we have no idea if he can carry this to Heavyweight. Monte Barret aside, this has not been proven.
David Haye also hasn’t been in action for quite a while now.
The way I see this fight panning out is
1. Haye comes out, moving fast, goes to the body, some head shots for the first 4-5 rounds.
2. He will get caught a few times with Valvev’s jab and pushed back a bit during these rounds.
3. The head shots from Haye will eventually get lower due to Valvev’s jab and Haye will begin to tire between rounds 5-10.
4. I personally believe that the last 2 rounds will be the storytelling rounds. And I have to choose my head over my heart and say that Valvev’s heavyweight experience will shut this down with Haye either being stopped or not coming out from his corner due to Valvev’s pressure in the late rounds.
Can I also just point out that I believe the referee will jump in to stop this fight after the smallest bit of pressure from Valvev.
I really hope this dosen’t happen, as I want Haye to take on the K Bros and excite the division.
