Video: Wladimir Klitschko vs David Haye Gets Rolling with HBO Faceoff

Well, here it is. It was hyped up as soon as it was filmed, and now the full, 12-minute video has hit the internet.

Language Not Safe for Work

I think this one lives up to the hype. I don't think it's quite as good as the Pascal vs Hopkins rager, but Haye's a great talker and Wladimir's ability to hang with him verbally has become more and more clear -- and his ice cold stares at Haye when David gets rolling are just great. Just terrifying stuff. Like his brother, Wladimir is a wonderfully nice man with the ability to scare the living crap out of people.

This is just great stuff on both sides, though. Big heavyweight fights always attract attention (as much as I don't care for the division, it would still be by far the marquee division with more compelling fighters and fights), and these two are mixing the heavyweight intrigue with true hype and promotion.
