    I like watching a bit, wouldn't call myself an avid fan, if there's an interesting bout on, I stay up and try and get a stream up or I check who won in the morning and try and catch some highlights. Not having Sky doesn't help, I used to watch boxing all the time when it was on BBC and later ITV, now there's zero boxing on free TV.

    David Haye will take on Wladimir Klitschko on July 2nd in Hamburg. Biggest Heavyweight fight in years. Heavyweight boxing has become so boring.

    Sounded like a good one, and a close one. Could be the start of a few fights between these 2.

    Klitschko bigger and more reach. Heavyweight boxing has been crap for years. It was expected. Overhyped. Haye did well to go 12 rounds though I thought, could have done better, stupid to blame the loss on breaking his little toe 3 weeks ago.

    Had Haye won he wouldn't have mentioned his toe.

    Klitschko was the better fighter on the night- end of story.

    I think Haye's antics before the fight was possibly a display of cockiness for the cameras- but not shaking Klitschko's hand was nonsensical. Both were as bad as each other as far as bravado goes- happens with both boxers most big fights- predictable.

    But Haye's grumpy attitude beforehand was daft.

    Was embarrassing when Haye used his broken toe as an excuse. In his defence he was asked immediately after the fight when emotions are high, similar to when football managers are interviewed immediately after a match. They sometimes say the wrong thing.

    If Haye had won it would of been mightily impressive Haye is 6'3 and he looks small next to wladimir.

    4 inches shorter, reach is smaller. Haye is a cruiserweight who stepped up and has made the heavyweight division interesting again to be honest, there hasn't been as much interest in Heavyweight boxing for 10 years until last night, Lennox, Tyson, Holyfield was the last time the division was interesting. Klitcshko is a big heavyweight, he had a chance but Klitschko's tactics were spot on. Haye couldn't get near him as Klitschko was throwing jabs at him every second. Just too small for him. Size matters.
