IBR on The Cruelest Sport


“Once the regal darling of HBO, Klitschko was essentially sent packing for his almost pathological devotion to caution, a devotion that reached its zenith in his 2011 fight with pretender to the throne, David Haye. Haye spent far too much of his desultory fight with Klitschko playing the maimed beggar; and Klitschko, despite advantages in every category except gall, did nothing to spare himself or the audience Haye’s performance. Klitschko-Haye was supposed to be the heavyweight fight to set the world ablaze; instead, it burned audiences out.”
