His biggest Downfall Is His Biggest Problem’- Boxing Icon, David Haye
His biggest Downfall Is His Biggest Problem’- Boxing Icon, David HayeDavid Deron Haye is a British former professional boxer who competed from 2002 to 2018. He held multiple world championships in two weight classes, and was the first British boxer to reach the final of the World Amateur Boxing Championships, where he won a silver medal in 2001.
Boxing icon David Haye has explained what he feels went wrong in Deontay Wilder’s loss to Tyson fury in the WBC heavyweight belt clash on Sunday morning. Fury battered Deontay Wilder from the opening bell until one minute and 39 seconds into the seventh round, when Wilder’s corner threw in the towel, to beat the Bronze Bomber and claim the Lineal Heavyweight, WBC and Ring Magazine championship belts.
David Haye, a former Heavyweight champion during his own time, was sitting at ringside for BT Sport during the fight and he couldn’t believe what he witnessed, saying Tyson Fury exhibited ‘greatness’.
“I don’t know what it looked like to everyone at home, but watching it here, I witnessed greatness. That’s what that was.”
Haye also perfectly explained what led to Wilder’s loss.
“That kind of pressure is hard to negate,” Haye began to explain.
“He’s coming out, he’s coming back in and look at Wilder; his legs are straight and that’s what happens when you don’t have quads to hold your weight a little lower, to ride the shots. But he’s never needed to do it because he punches so hard.
“His biggest downfall is his biggest weapon. His power has allowed him to go through boxing up until this level with no problems. He didn’t know that existed. He didn’t know that pain he felt there existed in boxing, and now he knows.
“Fury was so calculated in every department and as you can see, I’m pretty impressed [laughs].”
