Haye vs. Fury

Boxing ain’t dead, not by a long shot

‘Boxing is dead’ is a term I read, and heard, frequently in recent years. If any truth lay in that statement, 2013 proved to be boxing’s resuurection. Drama, brutality, courage and the art of boxing, 2013 provided every element, when combined, makes this the greatest sport in the world. Continue reading

Britain’s Got Talent : Tyson Fury vs David Haye

fury565By Fantana: It is a sad state of affairs when Kings are hung, drawn and quartered in front of their own people. Kings who have inspired many nations, even ones like Scotland, to feel good about themselves. Unfortunately Britain lost a king in Audley Harrison recently, obviously due to extremely poor refereeing, but beside Audley there has been undue flak headed Tyson Fury’s way. In my eyes as a boxing purist he has done nothing wrong.

Coming back after being floored by an American to win via devastating clobbering is pretty impressive. It was a performance that Tyson Fury can take pride in, maybe a bit rough around the edges but nevertheless impressive, a bit like a Land Rover. Tyson Fury squashed America’s heavyweight title dream and I believe he is going to do the same thing to Cyprus resident David Haye. Continue reading

Fury will win the press conferences; Haye will win fight

fury2222David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) and Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) will be meeting up on September 28th at the Manchester Arena, in Manchester, UK. This Thursday, Haye and Fury will be announcing the fight. The fight itself promises to be a rather easy one for Haye, because Fury hasn’t looked good against the mediocre opposition he’s faced thus during his 5 year pro career.

However, Fury should at least win the press conference this Thursday and all the remaining press conferences as well. Haye will likely let Fury do most of the talking in building this fight, because his chances of getting the better of Fury in the trash talking department are slim and none.

Fury is one of those types of fighters that are willing and ready to say anything. He tends to get heated when his opponents try and trash talk him back. Continue reading

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

“I did everything in my power to get Fury in the ring. Even gifting him a 50/50 split. But big chump won’t sign contract 4 the fans #AllTalk”, was the message the former WBA heavyweight champion delivered to his twitter follower population of almost 1 million fans.

“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

Haye: I have not agreed to fight Tyson Fury

haye54In response to a comment from unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) over the weekend where Fury said a fight between him and former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) was “99 percent done,” Haye answered the questions on his social media site saying that he’s not agreed to fight the 6’9” heavyweight.

Haye said on his twitter today: “I read that Fury thinks a fight with me and himself is ‘99% Done’ HAHA At best i’d say there’s Light Discussions, that are moving slowly. For everyone asking if I’m fighting Fury. I currently have no agreement, or contract in place. But a fight later in the year would be fun.” Continue reading
