Neither one has lost since 2004. Klitschko has the height and reach advantage, plus he's dating Hayden Panettiere. I'm not sure how that factors into his boxing, but I'll give him the edge. I think a lot depends on the location of the fight. Klitschko usually fights in Germany or the United States, while almost all of Haye's fights have been in England.
If the match is in England I give Haye the edge. 2 of Klitschko's 3 losses have come when he fights outside of Germany, and England would not only be outside of Germany but right in the middle of Haye's home turf. One thing is for sure: that crowd would be loud, not matter who is winning. It certainly would be an interesting fight to watch. It's been a long time since I've seen a good heavyweight fight.
Haye will finally face a decent Heavyweight...and he will lose. If he really thinks that the likes of Bonin, Barrett, Valuev, Ruiz and Harrison are decent steps to Klitschko then he's deluded. He's too small and too chinny.
Hayes the one that said no. Klitschko wanted to have an easy night and extra payday, sounds like Haye didn't like his ego being taunted. "Hey little Mr Haye, first I will beat your country man, then I will beat you" "No Mr Klitschko, fight me, only me" "Ha, no, if you don't agree I'll get Adamek tied up hahaha" "Oh...balls"
Shake off some ring rust and prepare himself for Haye with an easy payday. He said he'd fight Haye afterwards, so why not take 5-quarters of the money he'd be getting for just fighting Haye?...And actually opening up the potential of re-writing the RTL contract he's stuck on and probably putting more money into the haye/Klitschko pot
