Saturday’s championship bout will be for the WBO, IBF, IBO, The Ring, and the WBA Heavyweight Championships. The event will air live on HBO on Saturday at 4:45PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bodog, Haye is the underdog in the fight with odds of +200 while Klitschko has odds of -260. The over/under for rounds has been set at 7.5 with the over at -140 and the under at +100.

Haye is the WBA Heavyweight Champion and he has a record of 25-1-0 with 23 wins coming by knockout. Haye stands 6-foot-3 and has a reach of 78 inches. Haye has won his last 15 contest, with seven of his last eight contests coming by knockout. Haye actually has only fought at heavyweight for his last four contests. He spent most of his career at cruiserweight.

Strengths: Haye has good quickness, which leads to him having good power. In his time at heavyweight, he has three wins by TKO with two coming in the fifth round or sooner. The native of England has a good reach to work with, which might allow him to get inside the bigger size of Klitschko.

Weaknesses: Haye will be the smaller fighter as Klitschko has a longer reach and bigger frame at 6-5. Haye is also relatively untested in the division, especially compared to Klitschko, who has been prominent in the heavyweight division for quite some time. This will be the biggest fight in his career, so the stage could be a lot for him to handle.
