David vs. Goliath: Nikolai Valuev vs. David Haye
After pulling out of a fight with IBF and WBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko in the summer, David Haye instead travels to Germany to challenge WBA Champion Nikolay Valuev for a piece of the title. The former Cruiserweight Champion wins the majority of the rounds simply by bouncing a few power shots off the dome of the Russian giant. With only a minute left in a dull fight, Haye suddenly comes to life, blasting Valuev with a combination to the head and wobbling the champion sideways into the ropes. Haye fails to get the knockout but shockingly gets the win from the judges on German soil albeit by majority decision.
