David Haye lost his WBA Heavyweight belt in a pretty poor fight against the now WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF champion, Wladimir Klitschko, in Hamburg last night. And well, if you didn’t know this either you live under a rock or you don’t have any form of social media or a TV.
Haye was utterly outclassed by the giant Ukrainian, losing almost every round on points and having his bum hit the canvas more times than his gloves hit Klitschko’s face. After two years of build up to the fight, two years of hype, two years of trash talking I don’t think I was the only one that was disappointed with David Haye’s performance within two rounds.
While his iPhone app may have made Haye knocking Klitschko’s head off seem easy, on the night the Hayemaker showed that he was all talk and no action. Klitschko looked relaxed the entire fight and seemed almost embarrassed by Haye’s performance. I know the Brits at Hamburg and at home were.
Just to add to his pitiful performance, Haye claims that his boxing was affected by a broken toe, suffered just weeks before the fight. But he didn’t want to pull out; he thought he could beat him with or without the injury… Klitschko hit back (not literally this time) and called him a sore loser (you can see his point after Haye claimed to be in the best shape of his life just before the fight, no mention of an injury until he lost).
It’s not only Klitschko that’s speaking out about Haye
being a whiney bitch fighting with an injury. Former Heavyweight champ, Frank Bruno said: “David Haye – you can’t punch straight, you can’t balance yourself, you can’t even move. A broken toe’s a serious thing,”
So there you have it, not only did David Haye lose, he’s also an idiot.
Haye has made his desire for a rematch quite clear after the fight. I doubt he wants to retire knowing that he looked like a little boy in the ring after getting schooled by Klitschko but his tantrums are annoying. I’ve never been a fan of David Haye’s trash talking, mainly because he talks shit. He said he proved he was a genuine champion by getting beat on points… no that proves you were the poorer boxer for ten rounds of a twelve round bout. Silly boy.
Boxing fans have been all over Twitter making their opinions on the fight heard today; though some fans have stayed loyal to David Haye the majority have been making some amusing commentary. So far my favourite joke has been “What’s the difference between David Haye and my trousers? My trousers have a belt.” I almost hope that he gets a re-match, just for the abundance of David Haye jokes I’ve been sent today.
