Haye Klitschko Picks

Across the Net, Gambling911.com has sought out Haye Klitschko picks from the experts.  In this case, the fighters themselves, past champions and promoters.

With Wladimir Klitschko a 1-2 favorite and David Haye at 7-4 odds, this one can go either way. 

Let’s check out some of the picks.

Boxing champ Joe Calzaghe is backing David Haye.  He believes that the fight will be over inside five rounds and it will be the Brit that emerges triumphant.

In an interview with talkSPORT, Calzaghe said: “Haye has tremendous speed and looks in the form of his life. As long as he sticks to his game plan I think he’s got an excellent chance of beating Klitschko.

“I think it’s going to be a chess match, it’s going to be cagey, but I don’t see the fight going longer than five rounds.

“Haye needs to be careful of Klitschko’s right hand because he’s got good power. Whoever gets the first shot in, his opponent could be in trouble.”

WBA light-welterweight champion Amir Khan’s Haye Klitschko pick was on the Brit:

“I think Haye could shock Klitschko - if he's smart, jumps on him early, hurts him and puts him on the back foot. But if Haye lets Klitschko settle in and work behind that jab, the fight could become very hard work.

“But my money's on Haye, I think he could even take Klitschko out towards the end of the fight. He's got the speed and the power to knock him out, but I don't think he'll rush into anything just in case he makes a mistake.”

Frank Warren is boxing’s premier promoter in the UK says: “Klitschko will be too big for Haye and stop him inside the distance. I know people straightaway will say, 'well,  Nikolay Valuey was big’, but Klitschko has got more mobility, he's got a great jab and he's got more boxing ability.

“Haye says before every fight he's going to have a tear-up, but he never does.”

Oscar De La Hoya, the former six-weight world champion, believes that Haye has a fighting chance against Klitschko.

“David Haye is a great champion and a very charismatic person, but he's also a great athlete, which is one of his advantages over Klitschko. He can be one of the fighters who can knock out a Klitschko - he's that powerful.”

It’s a dangerous fight for Haye, De La Hoya admits, but Haye can get the job done.

Richie Woodhall, the former WBC super-middleweight champion believes that Haye will knock out Klitschko and the odds of this happening are pretty substantial at William Hill.   Former boxing champ Bernard Hopkins agrees a knockout is going to happen and Klitschko will be at the receiving end.  John Murray, the European lightweight champion also agreed with this sentiment.

James Degale, the former Olympian and British super-middleweight champion was going with  Klitschko.

In Hamburg, against one of the Klitschkos, it's a difficult task for Haye. Although, being British, hopefully he can go out there and do it and unify the division.

I see Klitschko knocking him out late on, that's the way I see it. He's just too athletic, too big and hits far too hard. But you never know - it's heavyweight boxing, all it takes is one punch, and David Haye can dig.
