Boxing Breakfast: The Klitschko vs Haye Buzz

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Is Wladimir Klitschko Mentally Dominating David Haye?

I'll admit something -- I think I've watched the Klitschko vs Haye episode of Ringside about four times now, and I just can't get over being fascinated by how it seems like Wladimir Klitschko has taken David Haye's cocky, trash talking persona and turned it around on him to such a degree that it now seems the guy being annoyed is David Haye. Here's just a brief bit:

It just seems like Haye can't do anything anymore to truly get under Wladimir's skin. He's trying. But it just isn't happening. And it also seems like Haye's attempts to "hate" Klitschko are being exposed as fraudulent. He doesn't really look legitimately displeased by the presence of Klitschko. He instead seems to be trying not to laugh with him, trying not to admit that tough guy act is just an act.

Fascinating. Or I think so, anyway.
