saw David Haye at UFC 120

Post by junior pepa seed »

So i saw the champ shouted hayemaker from my wheelchair as he walked past...snubbed not once but 4 times, dude was mad moody head down with security guards and was blanking everyone crowd all giving him love he pretended to be on phone and shit...untill the camera came on him and he was all smiles and waves...twat unlike miguel cotto who was a very humble guy as where all the ufc fighters i met day before at expo.

I only brought this up as someone said a while back Haye was up his own arse and moody at Mg 7 and i didnt believe it..now i do shame a smile and waves and a few handshakes cost nothing.

BTW Ufc had an expo at earls court boxing could do same...promoter like hennasey or frank could make money and a buzz doing it.

I am waiting for back surgery from an accident (nhs waited since last year)it was only way i could have made the fight and expo as in too much pain to walk round cant walk over 200m in one go.

I understand what you are saying and agree how ever i just wanted a wave as did most the crowd...frekin dizzy rascal walked past i shouted oi dizzy as no one saw him then a few others shouted he looked up and gave the thumbs up and a clap cost him nothing...to a "waaaaaaaaay" cheer from crowd Haye could have done same didnt wanna be his friend :) .... Just a shame as did the same to Cotto and he was all smiles came over did a photo i just wanted a thumbs up..lol :TU:

Shame about Haye that.

I was there too and met Wanderlei Silva. He didn't turn down one photo or autograph request and was very generous with his time.

Good photos.

Haye was the same at the boxing in Birmingham. He was all smiles for about 2 minutes then spent the next 4 hours scowling and ignoring everyone.

Maybe he's just tetchy when training, maybe he got the low-down on PPV sales. Who knows.

Great photos.

Anyone on Twitter could ask Haye about his behaviour directly perhaps?

Likewise, it would be a real shame. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt for now though. I'm thinking of my journey home from work tonight and thinking if everyone I saw wanted a pic/autograph/chat with me, it would be tough going. On the flipside I'm not being financially rewarded by the public, and I think I could have managed a quick wave if I was. It's a tough one though, there isn't sufficient preparation for the kind of exposure he is getting these days.

I want to clarify that I didn't even bother approaching him all night (he was sitting directly in front of us) because of the way he (and his minders!) responded to everyone wanting to say hello/get a photo/autograph. The only person he seemed to have a bit of time for was the WBO ref who did the Clevery/Murat fight whose pretty girlfriend (?) had to literally beg him to sign their Hayemaker magazines.

I thought about saying to him look, I appreciate it must get boring people wanting to do this all day every day but some of us are genuine "fans" and it cost me nearly £1000 to watch you beat Mormeck in France so drop the attitude (I must have been one of the "handful" of fans he mentions in interviews about the Mormeck fight).

Its a real shame that he's like that!To be honest though he's never struck me as the most modest of guys!He's always seemed a little up his own arse to me!

was at o2 london hurlock.

Yeah i just felt he let Boxing down a little he was at a fight event he must have expected to get recognised and have to smile and wave a bit to attract new fans from the mma world.

I hope he is a nice guy i can only go on my experience and what i saw and what i have read before.

It was a good two days thanks for comments guys

I have heard that he will ask for a favour in return for an autograph or photo - Usually a kiss of the girlfriend if she's cute or 10 or 20 push-ups from you. Luckily I broke my collar bone so had that excuse in waiting :D

I met Haye in Nurenburg the night before the big fight with Valuev and have never met a more approachable down to earth guy. He stood chatting with me and my brother for a good while asking questions about how we were finding the place and where we were from back in the UK etc etc. Posed for pictures no problems.

The day after the fight I saw him again at the Airport and he didnt turn down one autograph, despite the right hand being smashed up and strapped up.
I cant stand arrogant ignorant people and Haye has never come across like that. Even with the media and in interviews I find alot the stuff he says tongue in cheek and for me comes across as a top bloke.

Guess it all depends on the timing or maybe has his mind on other things?

I think so - Factor in that a. the night before he was probably all hyped and not bothered by a score of fans b. the day after he was on a complte high after winning another title.

Excellent.

The Jon Jones Bones is superb....the hurt was no doubt worth it for the picture. Class. So much better than the traditional 'fist photo'

And the Cotto pic? Yep. One to be envious of mate..

Miguel Cotto is such a absolute gent.

You can tell he's a family man and down to earth.

On another site lots of lads have put their pics up with Cotto and made expo trip 100% purely to see him and they were not dissapointed at all.

Shame about Haye though. I've met him a bunch of times, mainly stood with women's sunglasses on. Sometimes he is outgoing and other times he is like he is in a hurry and comes off a bit rude.
