Last night on Showtime’s Championship Boxing, cruiserweight title holder David Haye 21-1 (20) tacked on his third 200-pound title by defeating Enzo Maccarinelli 28-2 (21) in a two round romping. In victory, Haye earns himself the WBO strap to go along with his WBA/WBC cruiserweight titles.

Haye, who was riding a three fight knock out streak looked to reign supreme as he took on Maccarinelli. Maccarinelli has not lost a bout since early 2000. Haye's only loss came in 2004 at the hands of Carl Thompson. Since his loss, Haye has stopped ten out of his last eleven opponents, and last night continued his domination.

Round one was the usual feeling out round, but round two was something to talk about and would ultimately belong to the “Hayemaker” who landed a barrage of blows that sent Maccarinelli to the canvas. Although Maccarinelli beat the count he was in no shape or form to continue on. Referee John Keane had seen enough and called to halt the bout at 2:04.

Haye, who holds three of the four titles in the cruiserweight division, (the fourth which is held by Steve Cunningham, the IBF portion) has plans on moving up to bigger people and bigger paydays as he has spoken out on taking the jump to the heavyweight division.

Only time will tell what Haye decides to do. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with taking on Cunningham to see who could be the unified cruiserweight champ.
