The coverage has already started. The main event will be on nearer 10pm I think.
The commentary team mentioned Haye is scheduled to enter the ring at around 9:50pm so I'd assume 10pm is the start time.
hbo starts 21.45 ET is that 9:45 uk time?
sweet i got my dreambox out for hbo
Well the Haye ringwalk is 9:45PM, I think the local time in Germany is 10:45PM and EST in the US will be 4:45PM.
But the main thing you need to know is for us it's 9:45
Can i have a pm as well
Come on David, sort it out you muppet.
This is hilarious!
He stood Lennox up!
haha,just hope he backs it up ,round 6/7 will do me and my bank balance just fine l
Barry McGuigan analysing the financial cost of Haye's delayed entrance.
As they've said, it's all part of the plan to make Wlad angry and make him come for Haye!
Here we go!
Wouldn't it be hilarious of they played a terrible song for his second entrance instead of McFadden and Whitehead!
Well Haye might as well retire now. What's he going to do? He hasn't earned the right to call a rematch... Vit isn't going to fight him. He has nothing to box for.
Lucky for him he talked his way into 50% of tonight eh!
Yeah gotta agree with you there , wish I'd listened to my head !!
Thankfully I listened to my head with the betting, was only a small one but I couldn't resist the odds, managed to get £2 on Wlad on points at 5-1, pays for the take away at least
Haye fighting with a broken toe apparently......
dear oh dear.
Don't think I need to say anything else really
Oh but of course!
Ah well, I did say before I shelled out my hard earned that I didn't expect it to be an exciting fight, and it wasn't. Fair play to Haye, he's certainly answered the questions about his chin, but he looked out of ideas from the first tonight and all the jumping in and slipping made for a pretty poor performance.
He can say what he likes about his little toe, but he needed to get the combinations going, seemed to just want a repeat performance of the Valuev fight, who was simply much slower than Klitschko, and didn't seem to have a plan B.
Fair play to Vlad, best performance I've watched of his, and you have to admire his humbleness really.
Would think retirement is probably best for Haye now, he won't(and shouldn't) get a shot against Vitali, so might aswell call it a day if he's adament on retireing this October.
Haye, Wlad and Vitali all should retire. Haye has said that he's retiring this year. He's lost to Wlad therefore Vitali won't fight him. Vitali and Wlad won't fight each other obviously. Wladmir could fight Chisora but I can only see that going in favour of Wladmir. All got nothing left to prove, just want to keep on making money.
The Klitschko brothers should retire because they have no competition?
That's like saying Pac and Mayweather should retire if they're not going to fight each other...
And just to add to what Iccz has said above, why would they stop wanting to make money?
It panned out as anticipated, it's very very hard to fight against someone with such good range, straight shots and footwork. Haye should have taken more risks from round 9 onward. Whether he left on his back or lost on points, it makes little difference. He may have had to take a few shots to get his off but he was miles behind on points anyway.
I don't see why he wouldn't fight Vitali as well. As a minimum they will get 50k+ in an Arena in Germany (say £4-5m+) and a fair number of PPV. If he wins then he can call for a rematch, if he loses then he retires with a few million extra quid in the bank. It's not like there are many top heavyweights out there.
Yeah the two brothers should retire, unless they want to fight each other, which they obviously won't. They isn't anybody who can beat them in this era in the heayweight division. It's completely different to the Pacquio and Mayweather situation, because they both claim to want to fight one another and have something to prove.
Oh come on Mayweather doesn't want to fight Pac - everyone knows this. He's too scared to lose his 0.
Just because he says he wants the fight doesn't mean he does.
If he wanted the fight then the fight would happen.
Obviously it's human nature to be greedy, but what have the two brothers got left to prove? The fans need to wake up and smell the coffee. The only fight worth paying 15 pound to watch is Pacquio vs Mayweather.
Take the test.....that is all Mayweather is asking for. Take the test...
And who is he to order a drugs test?
He is not the governing body. I'm with Pac on that one. I'm a huge Mayweather fan but I have lost a lot of respect for him over this ordeal. Let's be honest, Pac hasn't got anything to lose really - at least record wise.
There's no reason for him to call a test on Pac other than mind games, and Pac's too clever to fall for it.
If Pacquio wanted the fight so bad he would take the tests Mayweather wants him to.
But that's what Mayweather wants him to do, take a needless test to add to the mind games, he doesn't have to take it unless the governing body request it.
If Mayweather wants it he will just let the actual authorities make the required demands and just go fight like he's going to get paid to do...
