Big boxing match this weekend in England as defending world heavyweight title-holder David Haye is fighting Audley Harrison, former Olympic super-heavyweight gold medalist.

For better or for worse, this fight has really got people interested in the UK. There is talk it could break PPV records in the UK.

I think Haye must be favoured to win, but really, Harrison is a big man who can box (for a man of his size that is) when he's in the mood and there is no doubt he has genuine one punch ko power. Anything could happen.

Anyone any thoughts on the way it will go?

Harrison is terrified of being hit. Anytime he is put under pressure, he backs off with bad footwork, panics, and launches hit n' hopes. He was schooled mercilessly by Sprott, who is barely a national level fighter, and saved his career with a punch thrown while sat on the ropes. He is a joke as a fighter, and delusional as a man.

That being said, Haye is not a pressure fighter until he has his man hurt, so the pace may suit Harrison.

Haye has the footwork and skills to avoid big men (his performance against Valuev was a masterclass of boxing), and the power in his jab alone to drop Harrison.

Common sense and history of performance says Haye wins by KO/TKO within 5 rounds.
That being said, history also shows Harrison to be annoyingly lucky, so anything is possible.

Just what I expected. Harrison fighting negatively, creating a boring first 2 rounds while Haye found his range, then a quick destruction job in the 3rd round.
Doesnt improve Haye's standing internationaly, as the oponent was not worthy of a title challenge.
I just want him to hurry up and sort out a fight with one of the klitchko's.

Just finished watching it. Harrison was poor. He almost had me fooled in to thinking he was going to do something in this fight. He landed one jab in the whole fight. As you mentioned Cord, Harrison looked terrified in the 2nd round when David Haye came close to connecting with a good shot.

Terrible (but sadly typical) performance from Harrison, but Haye showed poise to get him out of there.

Agreed. You can only fight the man in front of you, and Haye made Harrison look as mismatched as he was. His finish was clinical, and he proved once again that a functional, powerful 15-16 stone physique is more than enough in the heavyweight division.

I really hope that the klitchko's stop ducking him and agree to a sensible financial split so we can see a real championship fight or two next year.

Failing that, i wouldn't bet against a Haye vs Holyfield defense, though I wouldnt wish it on either fighter.
