WBA Heavyweight Titleholder 23 1 (21)
Last Year s Ranking: 66
Status Report: Haye bombed out once promising Audley Harrison in November (KO 3) to set up, allegedly, a fight with Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko. Haye had a good year, outpointing mountainous Nicolay Valuev (W 12) and then stopping and retiring human barnacle John Ruiz (KO 9).
Future: There s no end to the number of pitiable heavyweights the WBA could trot out to keep Haye s sanctioning fees flowing, so if he doesn t face one of the Klitschkos, don t fret. He ll still be around.
