Boxing Betting – Haye’s Destiny to Be Decided In Hamburg
The much anticipated heavyweight contest between WBA champion David Haye and the IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko will go ahead on July 2nd as the pair go toe-to-toe at the Hamburg Imtech Arena in Germany.
The unification bout will see Haye travel to face Klitschko on his home turf, since the Ukrainian adopted Germany as his boxing base camp.
Relations between the two fighters have been poor at best after Haye announced himself on the heavyweight scene by continual mocking both Klitschko brothers, meaning there is a definite edge to this fight.
Wladimir Klitschko enters the fight as the 1.513* favourite on merit after a career which has seen him amass an impressive record (55-3, 49 KOs).
The Ukrainian will use tactics to utilize his massive height and reach advantage over Haye to ensure his opponent is out of range.
Considering he’s 6ft 6 240lbs his speed is impressive and it may surprise the ‘Hayemaker’.
Despite being a safe fighter he has a fantastic jab and immense power to match. This has been evident when he most recently destroyed Samuel Peter and Eddie Chambers.
However, questions still remain over whether or not the Ukrainian will have enough ring smartness to keep Haye quiet for 12-rounds. And what makes this fight all the more interesting is that Wladimir has been knocked out three times, most notably by Corrie Sanders and Chris Byrd.
David Haye (2.750*) also possesses a formidable record (25-1, 23 KOs) and will see a victory against Klitschko as a defining moment in his career.
Having repeatedly stated his desire to retire by the age of 31, Haye is entering the climax of his career, and a win over first Wladimir and then Vitali would ensure he is the best heavyweight by the time he retires.
Haye has undoubtedly conjured up interest in the previously dormant division and will now face his sternest test.
His main attribute is his speed, which was evident against Nikolay Valuev, when his movement and evasiveness ensured he was not hit.
Haye’s power is also a major attribute for the British boxer. He seriously rocked Valuev in the 12th round, floored John Ruiz in the first and destroyed Audley Harrison.
However, Haye, like Klitschko is also vulnerable to big punches, having been knocked down at cruiserweight.
