Boxing: Haye versus Maccarrineli

Last night's match between Enzo Maccarrineli and R-Kelly look-a-like, David Haye, only lasted a couple of rounds. It was sad to see Enzo despatched so quickly, but it does at least give us hope that the rapid, hard-hitting right hand of Haye will introduce a bit of spark in the heavy weight division.

Haye will be away from the action for a while as he needs to pile on quite a few pounds to battle with the big boys. Then, when he's ready, he'll go wherever the heavy-weight action takes him. As Haye confidently says "If I've got to go to Russia or to Vegas, I'll go there. As long as there's a ring and a referee who can count to 10, I'm sorted."

I don't know how long this fight will remain on Youtube, so enjoy it while it lasts:
