I wouldnt mind seeing both "Clits" lose tho..
Amen to that brotha!
I think BOTH have an excellent shot at pulling off an upset!
WOW...could you imgine if they both did and then told the Kilts to piss off on any rematches and then you could have Haye/Adamak for a HW unification bout....what an awesome matchup that would be.
That would be the BIGGEST breath of fresh air in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time!
I think Vitali has looked a little slow in some of his last few fights despite being in with corpses for the most part. Other than Solis, he has gone 8+ rounds with his last 8 opponents. He's 39.
I think a very skilled, defensive guy like Adamack could pull it off. Although I have not been impressed with his power at HW....Adamak has put together a VERY nice HW hit list in the last couple years that has included all that a guy would need to see when stepping in with one of the Klits. He's fought GIANT men like McBride and Grant to get a feel for the height.....he fought hard power punchers in Arreola and Golota....so he has tasted hard HW power. Although I could knit pick flaws in all of that opposition, it's better than most have put together, including the Klits themselves in the time period AND when you consider how shallow the division is...I CANNOT hold too much against him in terms of the age and skills of some of those I listed.
And to be honest....I really don't see a (by fight time) 40 year old Vitali being the HUGE threat he's alwas been considered. He has looked slow and has not been in with a live body since MAYBE Sosnowski....so I can see the age and even ring rust being a factor with an active HW that Adamak will no doubt be!
Haye on the other hand has a very good shot too. I think all of his BS spewing has really gotten under the bros. skin....enough to where I do think Wlad may be just the tiniest more open due to maybe trying to hurt Haye early, that he himself may get caught.
Again I see Haye's fight with Valuev as invaluable in terms of already being in with a HUGE man....it will not be SO overwhelming when the night comes.
Sure we all know Valuev does not bring even the smallest of skill and ability and work rate that Wlad does...BUT...at the very least Haye will have seen the Height before. I've often thought that is an aspect that caused a LOT of guys to freeze up like deer in headlights when they got in with the Klits. that will not be an aspect this time.
And once again...you have to go back to 2008 in Thompson to find the last fight where a guy really made an effort and actually fought Wlad. That's 3 years of not being in with a viable live body...and I really do NOT look for Haye to set outside all night like most, I think he's too smart for that. Even if it means getting KO'd...I think he will bring it for sure with all of the mess he has run his mouth about...PLUS that's the only way to make the stock you put into all of the shit talking pay off!
AND of course there is always the GF aspect with that blonde of Wlad's....for any of you that are in your mid 30's and have dated a MUCh younger woman...you know what I speak of....come fight night he may be too damn tired! lol
One thing is for sure....they will both be interesting....which is something Klitchko bouts have not been in some time!
