    on HBO right now.

    I hope WK whoops that Brits pompeous, disrespectful behind.

    I wish the Klitschko brothers were American, I love the way the fight and how they carry themselves in and out of the ring. Even though they are from the Ukraine (a major part of the former USSR) I have no problems rooting for them.

    BTW, this fight depresses me, because it just shows how far American Heavyweight boxing has fallen.....and I honestly do not see it coming back anytime soon....for shame.

    What a snoozer this fight was. Glad to see Wlad win though.

    Haye, who stirred most of the hype with often crass trash-talking, said he hurt a toe on his right foot in training three weeks ago and lost some of his explosive power because of it.

    ''I couldn't give everything I needed to, it was really frustrating,'' Haye said in the ring. ''I had to knock him out and unfortunately I couldn't do it.''

    Just to prove it, Haye stood on a table during the post-fight news conference and showed his swollen right foot to Klitschko and dozens of journalists.

    ''There was a bee that bit you?'' Klitschko joked, and advised Haye to avoid appearing like ''a sore loser.''

    Is boxing ever going to not suck again? Seriously, that fight was downright pathetic.

    I didn't know if I was watching boxing or soccer......Haye looked in true soccer flop form.

    My favorite part of the fight, was the announcers mocking Haye and his non-fighting, soccer flopping style of boxing. Too talk all that trash, then to not fight, to flop around the ring like a dying fish, and to make silly excuses after the fight......what a waste of time and space....he went out like a female dog

    no harm in getting beat...but at least fight....especially if you run your mouth, go down swinging.

    Yep. If he at attempted to fight and not back peddle then at least we would know he tried to back up his talk. I'm sure he will enjoy his paycheck (50-50 split) but I doubt he will enjoy the fallout from this fight.

    The sad thing is that the Heavyweight division is so poor that Haye will still be in high demand. As for the trash talking, that's just common fight promotion. Mayweather does it all the time. Ali had the biggest mouth of them all.

    But Ali and Floyd (as much as I hate him) back up their talk
