Twitter Reacts To Klitschko Win: Haye To Be Praised?

Since its launch in 2006, social networking site Twitter is continually growing in user numbers, the latest being some 200 million active users. Although its still got a way to go before it catches up with the number one site Facebook, its attracted not just the everyday person but a line up of celebrities. These include music artists such as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, actors and actresses, sportsmen and women, writers and so on. Tweets which are referred to as messages have ranged from rants through to tributes of a passing star.

The latest trending topic to hit Twitter this evening is that of the big David Haye vs Wladimir Klitschko fight that took part live in Hamburg. Here at OSM, we were lucky enough to tune in to watch the action as it happened, ok, so it cost us to do so but it was worth the money, whilst many of you found other ways to view the full 12 rounds. Obviously if you have decided to pay for such a large event and with the build-up being so extravagant, all you can hope for is a worthy contest, for those of you who saw the fight, I’m sure you will agree we all got our monies worth!

If you didn’t see the heavyweights battling it out, then we can tell you that the winner was the Russian Klitschko who won on points to British Haye. Mixed reaction came from the judging panel who at times scored the fighters on a level pegging, but the general consensus was that the Ukrainian had the upper hand. No doubt there will be speculation as to some of the actions from either fighter including occasional knock downs for Haye and push downs from Klitschko.

We can report on just a few of the tweets coming in this evening. They vary from one saying that “Haye was unlucky but it’s hard 2 give away height reach and 2 stone+ at that level, and well done Klitschko he comes across as a class act.”

Another tweeted, “Also impressed with Vlad Klitschko’s conduct outside the ring. Must admit I like the man. Worthy champion.”

Tell us whether you tuned into the fight? Who was your money on to win, give us your comments, do you think that if given the chance to go another 2 or 3 rounds, Haye may well have been in with a winning chance?
