    Default haye or wlad fans, who will be more embarrassed?

    considering the members of this forum, if the man they are supporting loses which set of fans will be more embarrassed?

    I'd have to say the Wlad fans.

    Wlad is a bigger Heavy, a more experienced Heavy, if it goes to points - it's in Germany etc etc a Wlad loss is far less excusable than a Haye loss would be.

    Wlad getting smashed off of a greener, smaller fighter? I'd be pretty embarrassed if I was a fan.

    All Haye fans would have to get embarrassed over is that they over estimated their fighter too much.

    Most Haye fans with their heads screwed on should be giving Haye a very good shot, but realising that he is still a sizable underdog in this fight.

    I consider myself as a fairlly good Wlad's fan and if ever he loses, I will be very disappointed but not embarrassed one second. That will be a "sad" day so to speak but that is about it, appreciating sport is all about cheering for our favorites but win or lose, "TV sports" are first and foremost entertainment, not a visceral need.

    i think adam hits the nail on the head

    i think the general opinion of haye fans (reading the posts on here) is that haye has a very good chance but is the underdog

    and the general opinion of the wlad fans is that haye has no chance, he was an overrated cruiserweight, he doesnt have the power to hurt wlad, he wouldnt have beaten byrd or chambers, etc etc

    so id say in general the wlad fans will have some egg on their faces (if haye wins obviously)

    I am the first one to think that Haye has no chances and would Wlad lose, I wouldn't be embarrassed one second and will take the mockeries like a big man. As Bad Religion once sang "because it's only, entertainment".

    I root for wlad but if he looses it won't be the first time a fighter I root for has lost nor will it be the last, don't see why there should be shame in it. I think its just a few people on either side that have been fanatical about it and those are the ones that will have egg on their face for talkin so much crap...

    Yeah not a fan of how haye went about things over last few years, been a fan of wlads for years. People call him borring but I think he's not any more borring than most other dominant fighters.he doesn't take risks because he doesn't have to its up to his opponent to push him and heck haye might be able to. If haye wins fair play to him and I hope hell act classy in victory, or more likely defeat. All I know is I rewatched lewis vitali earlier, and god if this fight is only half as good as that ill be happy regardless of outcome.

    yep Adam has it bang on

    the majority of us Haye fans realise the enormity of his task - but that it's achievable. Will be nothing to be embarassed about at all

    those who are saying ( very few but they are out there !) that he will take Wlad apart easily and in no time are deluded.

    But I am happy to be proved wrong

    And if he does will look forward to reading Lyle's postfight post

    I'm the total opposite and don't see a way Wlad can win unless by Hayes mistakes

    Anyone who thinks Haye will stand directly in front of him is off their head.

    Booth will have a gameplan no question.!

    i can see Haye stopping him inside 7 rounds infact the earlier the better

    Here's Freddy Roach on the fight!

    That's at least the 3rd time that Freddy Roach article has been posted.

    I won't be embarrassed if Wlad loses. I won't be happy about the loss, but losses happen in boxing.

    I'm not worried about the other side because they'll just say "He was the underdog" and what not and there's nothing wrong with that. I just think if the guy is going to talk a whole bunch of trash then the way he fights will determine if his fans should feel embarrassed.

    So you're saying that you'd rather see haye lose well than win badly?

    Probably the most unbiased you've been on the subject...

    what do you like about wlad, do you find his fights entertaining?

    would you be happy for him to reign like he is for the next 5 years?

    do you think that the HWs are just as exciting now as in all the eras before lewis retired?

    Ha, well that's not exactly what I meant. You guys are of course aware of when fighters that may have "a puncher's chance" vs Wlad but instead of pushing the envelope and pressuring Wlad trying like hell to land a big punch they load up and wait and eat jabs all night.

    I would like for the WBA title holder to have a good fight, Wlad needs a test every now and then. And it would be nice for the heavyweights to have a fight that lives up to the hype.
