Carl Frampton Feath­er­weight con­tender

Jean-marc Mormeck has to be one. Haye went over to Paris and knocked out the best cruis­er­weight on the planet. But beat­ing the big man Niko­lay Valuev was a big one just be­cause of the sheer size of him. When Haye rocked him it showed the dev­as­tat­ing power of the man.

It has to be the Jean-marc Mormeck win. He was away from home in an in­tim­i­dat­ing arena fac­ing the num­ber one in the di­vi­sion – whose style was all wrong for Dave – and had to over­come a bad knock­down. It was a night I’ll never for­get.

Prob­a­bly the Valuev win for the heavy­weight ti­tle and it hap­pened when I was at Hayemaker. But the mag­ni­tude of the Kl­itschko fight in Germany stands out, too – apart from the fight it­self. Then there’s the Mac­carinelli win and him hold­ing his arms out non­cha­lantly af­ter­wards.

The law­less na­ture of the build-up to the Dereck Chisora fight which makes that night at Up­ton Park stand out. Not even my lap­top get­ting cov­ered in rain and fly­ing beer took the edge off the mad at­mos­phere and vin­tage Haye finish.
