Fury says he’s doing Haye a favor by fighting him

Undefeated Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) seems to think he’s doing former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) by choosing to fight him on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK. Fury feels that the 32-year-old Haye didn’t have a lot of options for his next fight until he came along and agreed to fight him. Continue reading

Haye Vs. Fury Official – Press Conference To Announce Showdown Set For Thursday In London

haye54It’s finally official: British heavyweight rivals Tyson Fury and David Haye will fight on September the 28th in Manchester.

Haye signed the contract for the fight yesterday, and now Fury has agreed to the exciting-looking match-up that may well captivate British audiences.

“David Haye and Tyson Fury, both world-ranked, charismatic and dangerous, have agreed to a highly anticipated domestic showdown on Saturday 28th September at the Manchester Arena,” a statement from Hayemaker Promotions read. “It marks not only the biggest heavyweight encounter of 2013, but also the biggest fight staged in Britain in many years.” Continue reading

Haye-Fury bout will be in Manchester, says Peter Fury

fury54 (2)When trainer Peter Fury was asked if the September 28th fight between unbeaten Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) and former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) would be taking place in Manchester, England, Peter said “It will be Manchester.”

That narrows it down quite a bit. Now the only thing that awaits is for Tyson Fury to put pen on paper to make the fight a reality. It’s difficult to believe that Fury is actually going to take the fight because he’s been so selective in his fights since turning pro; turning down the likes of Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev and instead facing guys like Martin Rogan and Vinny Maddalone.

Haye Signs Contract For Fury Fight, Awaits Tyson’s Signature

fury5333David Haye has done his part to make the quite mouth-watering all-British heavyweight collision that is Haye Vs. Tyson Fury happen. Haye has today released a video of himself signing the contract for the September 28th bout on Instagram, as well as writing the following statement:

“I’ve just signed to fight Fury on September 28th, let’s hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn’t keep delaying. Word around the camp fire is Fury is looking to duck me and fight Tony “The Tiger” [Thompson]. Let’s hope they are just rumours.”

Haye, of course, hopes a win over Fury will get him another crack at the heavyweight title. Continue reading

Haye signs contract for Fury bout

haye4543Former two division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) says he’s just signed the contract for a fight against the unbeaten but totally untested 6’9” Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s). Haye is now hoping and praying that Fury doesn’t duck out and choose not to sign his portion of the contract.

David Haye said on his twitter “I’ve just signed to fight Fury on Sep 28, lets hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn’t keep delaying. Word around “Camp Fire” is Fury is looking to duck me and fight Toney “The Tiger”. Lets hope they are just to rumours.”

Gosh, I hope Fury doesn’t get a case of stage fright and head in the opposite direction for some of the journeyman he’s been building his unbeaten record. I’d hate to see Fury ending up turning down fights against Haye and Kubrat Pulev and then going back to the journeyman circuit to continue to pump up his inflated resume. Continue reading

A Coming Golden Age?

In many areas of life there are periods of excellence. Moments when a group of people explode with genius and set a higher standard for the future. The Ancient Greeks had it with philosophy, the Italian Lombards had it with art, and… I postulate that the British may have it with heavyweight boxing. Continue reading

“Can’t believe team haye outed me on twitter not very professional of you guys now where do I go from hear! I can’t blah any more”, replied Fury. Continue reading
