David Haye is not known for his fortune telling, and a video compilation posted on Reddit shows all his misfortunes as every boxer he names to win goes on to lose their fight in question.
The Hayemaker retired from professional boxing in 2018 and now uses his platform as a pundit.
The former unified cruiserweight champion does seem to have a slight bias, however, always picking the Englishman when there’s a fight against an overseas boxer.
To list Haye’s errors:
- Chose Deontay Wilder to succeed via stoppage against Tyson Fury in their rematch (Lost via stoppage)
- Predicted Usyk would not cause much trouble to Anthony Joshua (AJ lost by unanimous decision)
- Backed fellow countryman Ricky Hatton to beat Manny Pacquiao (Hatton lost by knockout in the second round)
These guesses have made for a hilarious watch, maybe it’s because the self-confidence Haye has when he’s making these predictions.
He usually gives his opinions in the build-up to fights on BT Sport or on his social media platforms.
Despite his lack of prediction form, there will always be respect, and rightfully so, to Haye for being one of Britain’s best ever boxers.
Alongside with Usyk and Evander Holyfield, Haye is one of only three boxers in history to have unified the cruiserweight world titles and become a world heavyweight champion.
But he does make his audiences laugh with his comments, regardless of his impact on the sport.
