With 24 knockouts from 26 pro wins, David Haye loved finishing fights before the final bell
1. JEAN-MARC MORMECK
Knocked down early, Haye eventually silenced the Paris fans with a tremendous comeback and seventh round knockout to take Mormeck’s world cruiserweight titles.
2. ENZO MACCARINELLI
Billed as a 50/50 fight beforehand, Haye made a mockery of pre-fight forecasts with his speed and counter-punching ability and ended the fight in the second round.
3. DERECK CHISORA
This ill-tempered grudge match was settled in round five when Haye cracked an onrushing Chisora with a left hook, and then conclusively finished him moments later.
4. ALEXANDER GUROV
It took Haye just 45 seconds of this European title fight to find Gurov’s chin with his trademark right hand. After that, it was a wrap.
5. JOHN RUIZ
In a defence of his WBA heavyweight title, Haye floored Ruiz in round one and then, eight rounds later, became the first man to stop him in 14 years.
6. GIACOBBE FRAGOMENI
In a York Hall brawl, Haye was cut for the first time in his pro career but managed to see through the claret, get a second wind, and break Fragomeni up in round nine.
7. TOMASZ BONIN
While waiting for his shot at cruiserweight gold in 2007, Haye dipped his toes in heavyweight waters and destroyed a shell-shocked Bonin in the first round.
8. LOLENGA MOCK
Although dropped and nearly defeated, Haye somehow recovered from a heavy knockdown to halt Mock with an uppercut in round four. He remains the only man to stop Mock.
9. GLEN KELLY
Kelly, famous for fighting Haye’s hero Roy Jones, represented Haye’s first major test since losing to Carl Thompson and was obliterated in two rounds.
10. ARTHUR WILLIAMS
Former IBF cruiserweight champion Williams was expected to take Haye rounds in 2004, but instead found himself bamboozled by speed and put out of his misery in the third round.
