Lets face it, David Haye isn’t really interested in fighting anymore. All he does is run his mouth about how great he is and how much he should be paid. Gotta win a big fight first David. Im getting bored with reading the same old crap about him.

and you all know what will happen right? a few weeks before he fights fury, he will be “injured” in training, &then he will go back on the shelf for a while, like he’s been doing.

On to the next….

Dundee was wrapping Cassius Clay’s hands when Heavyweight Champion Ingomar Johansson walked into the gym with a single trainer…

Johansson’s trainer looked at Clay and said, “Hey… you’re Cassius Clay the gold medal winner aren’t you.” … “Yup” Clay said.. “Do you want to spar with the champ??” Clay said, “Ingo.. You sure you want to spar with me? I’m pretty fast.” Ingo said, “Yes.. Patterson is fast too.. That will be good..”

Clay jumps to his feet and singing and jumping around shadow boxing, “I’m going to be dancing with Johansson… I’ll be a-dancing with Yo Yo Johannson.”

Ingo said, “Is he always like this.”

Angelo says, “You have no idea what it’s like some days … with this idiot.”

E ZE: Those are some fascinating stories! I tell that you’re a older and wiser than I thought you were if you were watching the young Cassius Clay with Dundee at the old Gleason’s gym. I can tell that you totally grew-up around the sport and that must have been really cool. My boxing experience is limited to a lot of training and a few amateur fights when I was in my early 20s — after playing some college football (Strong Safety).

Fury vs Wilder, battle of the duckers

Posted June 29, 2013 1:54 am 


Fury, ducked price, ducked Pulev, ducked Haye. Fury is the GOAT of ducking contenders.

Posted June 29, 2013 1:53 am 


Fury will most likely duck the Haye fight like the Pulev fight. He’ll probably go after Oquendo and say it was Haye’s fault.

Speaking of the douchenozzle- he scribbled “I wouldn’t in a million years take Cunningham over Wilder”.
Of course not, you will blow massive amounts of hot air, then give the favorite 8to5 odds at fight time. Your odds never give precise outcomes like would be needed if you were to actually make a legit bet.

Note: I am taking a sabbatical for a while due to a major surgery. To all my clones, impersonators, and fans, please cover for me in my absence. I am flying to Portland Oregon this afternoon for a battery of tests over the weekend and will be under the knife early Monday morning.

Posted June 27, 2013 9:33 pm 


SQUARED CIRCLE A.K.A. Oh yes, most definitely without a doubt. Truely unforgettable times that bring back great memories. As a 9/10 yr. old youngster I first visited the old Gleason’s Gym with my dad & uncle, when it was located in the South Bronx, on Westchester Ave, a block away from the 3rd ave El subway line and 149th street. I later trained there myself. That was way before it was finally relocated in Brooklyn. I got to see Ali (then Cassius Clay) who trained there before he became champ. Angelo Dundee would usually bring his fighters like Luis Rodriguez, Jimmy Ellis & Willie Pastrano up from Miami to train days prior to their fights in the Garden.

Assyrian God…., “I would take USS Cunningham over Mitchell, Banks, Arreola and Wilder also.”

I wouldn’t in a million years take Cunningham over Wilder… Mitchell would just over power him too… Banks??? A tough fight but Banks can be very lazy like this last fight, so yes, Cunningham might win on desire and effort.

Cunningham beats Arreola all day long. Chris has nothing going right now… No desire… No ambition… Nothing.

Wladimir flew over from Germany to support his trainer in action against Mitchell.. They interviewed Wladimir during the fight. Wladimir sounded extremely downcast and disappointed in Banks’ effort. He knew Banks was giving the fight away and he had a sorrowful look on his face.

“IMHO there is another FURY who is leages above him and that is his cousin (?) , HUGHIE FURY who had decent pedigree as an amateur and is already starting to look good in the pros!” – TJ is correct. I saw Hughie Fury fight recently. He’s got great fundamentals and better skills than Tyson.

Posted June 26, 2013 8:22 pm 


I personally think Haye is a clown because of all his Klitchko, and”I’m going to retire” BS, but I can promise you he will beat the chit out of Fury. It won’t take much of an effort on Haye’s part.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it. That was once crazy night! I never met Gerry or this trainer Victor Valle, or his notorious managers, Rappaport and Jones. But I heard a few stories about those guys from Gerry’s brother — who really liked to talk boxing.

That was an interesting digression about going to that fight at MSG and reunited with and/or meeting all those dudes in the dressing room. Must have been great times back then and some cherished memories. Never bean to Gleason’s Gym, but it must be one of the most famous boxing gyms in the world. Didn’t Ali, Duran, Tyson, Hagler, Hearns, Lamotta, Judah, Julio Cesar Chavez, Pryor, Arguello, Toney, Whitaker and Malignaggi all fight out of that gym too?? The place is simply legendary.

I just have nothing concrete to base his worth on….. Nothing whatsoever!

SQAURED CIRCLE…. If USS had been a genuine heavyweight he would have smashed Tyson to pieces last time out.

USS wasn’t even a big puncher at Cruiserweight but was beating Tyson, until he gassed and Tyson employed dirty tactics on him before finishing him with an elbow smash against the ropes.

Against a genuine heavyweight (of which there are almost none out there), say a PULEV, I doubt Tyson would get away with these antics and take a pasting!

Let’s also NOT conveniently forget to mention that the 21-year-old greenhorn Fury knocked out McDermott in their rematch. TF knocked him down three times before the Ref saved JM. So I think It’s a mistake to try and define TF’s entire career based on his first fight with McDermott — even though TF won that decision.

Fury has admitted that he was partying way too much, not eating a clean diet, and slacking off up until the last 6-12 months. Personally, I have seen a noticeable improvement with his new-found dedication and lifestyle changes. I’m not saying that this kid is gonna go dethrone the Klitschkos, but I am saying that he’s being underestimated by many — especially after his brutal KO of U.S.S. in NYC. Real talk.

And you hold rematches where they’ll pull the most fans and money, and try to save yourself travel, hotel rooms and per diems and the whole deal as well.. He’s going to have to travel for a really big fight..

I don’t think Thompson was expecting to win the fight.. It’s the biggest win of his career.. But he did win and now it’s going to be tougher to beat him.. Pacquiao was taken out twice in early fights.. Wladimir lost 3 times before he really benefited from Emmanuel Steward’s teachings.. It’s Boxing. It happens.

correction, “the only chans Fury has”

Posted June 25, 2013 4:25 am 


This story shows who Fury really is. I lost all respect for him as a fighter.
He obviously knows exactly what’s going to happen if he ever steps into a ring with Haye. He’ll get kayoed 98 times out of 100. The only chance Haye has of not getting KTFO is if he punches himself with that mean right uppercut again and goes to sleep.

Posted June 25, 2013 4:24 am 


Haye ducked Vitali at one point… He wanted to fight Vitali at a more optimum time for Haye and a less optimum time for Vitali… I said he was working a scam at the time — Haye said he wanted to get a World Championship so he could negotiate a K Bro fight on more even terms. Vitali and his promoter said, “You fight Chisora and we’ll fight the winner.” … Haye said “Great Deal — That’s a deal.”

After Haye destroyed Chisora while barely getting touched with a hard punch … suddenly it didn’t seem like such a wonderful option for Vitali and his promoter anymore. That wasn’t the Haye they remembered. They fought Charr and now want to fight Stiverne, a new and punchable guy who beat Arreola. The name David Haye hasn’t crossed their lips since DH took out the so-called iron-chinned Chisora like he was Danny Williams.

I understand these things. Every Heavyweight Champion going back to Joe Lewis has maneuvered past certain fights.

But let’s not give Fury a pass when he says, “Price is my challenger and I’ll live up to my obligation to fight him” and then ducks out… Say “The Pulev fight is next and the winner gets Waldimir.” and ducks out of that fight… And then talks big about fighting Haye and ducks out of that fight.

We know all three Heavyweights are dangerous and can punch a ton… and a certain 6’9″ X 250lb heavyweight got cold feet when faced with signing to fight them… Just keeping it real as opposed to offering excuses, explanations, and likely stories for either side.

Show everyone how you can destroy and humiliate me. You are defending the indefensible. Fury is a loud mouthed, coward who runs when his bluff is called. It’s for all to see vs Price, Pulev, and now Haye. You go off on tangents that have nothing to do with the story, in order to deflect the realism of facts mounted against your version of the truth. Continually you tell half truths and only spruik bits and pieces of “conversations” that suit your pathetic arguments. Your deep seeded bias for and against fighters blinds you from a broad scope and alternative observations which leaves you with a tunnel visioned view.

Sounds to me like Haye responded by trying to negotiate a 50-50 deal in private.

The Fury calls him unprofessional when he makes Fury’s refusal to sign public.

Fury is the one who took everything to twitter previously.

I don`t hate Fury I have a grudging adminartion for him, and I don`t think he is scared. I think he is cynically manipulating the environment to try to stick to tier 2 until the 30+ year old threats retire or look bad.

But he has been outmanouevered here.

He’s like the guy who will only say something when he has friends there to “hold him back”, but now he is isolated.

TARK: You’re right that we do agree on an awful lot. However, we will have to agree to disagree about this issue surrounding Fury, Price and Haye.

Haye actually had t-shirts made of himself holding the decapitated heads of both K-Bros in his hands. Then he ducked VK 2-3 times and had an totally embarrassing performance vs. Wlad — running and falling down the whole time while refusing to exchange.

Then he said, in so many words, that he’s retired from boxing unless he can get another K-Bro fight. What the F is that??? He’s not Prince Harry or Little Lord Fauntleroy, he supposed to be a pro-boxer who fights top-5 contenders in the world. The dude is a straight up con-man. For real,

Posted June 24, 2013 11:29 pm 

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

TARK: We’ll see if Fury is ducking Haye. Personally I believe that Fury wants to fight Haye and will eventually fight him. Fury will also fight Price, if challenged, after his fight with Thompson.

The only Fighter Fury has avoided is Pulev… and that was to focus on negotiating a BIG MONEY fight with Haye. And I don’t believe the negotiations are over yet.

If you want to bash on someone for ducking, why can’t you admit that Haye ducked Vitali 2-3 times? Mago just called out Haye on a 80/20 split. Let’s see if Haye accepts his challenge?? Personally, I see right through Haye’s “semi-retirement” tactics. He’s been able to duck quite a few top contenders that way while begging for another fight with Wlad.

Posted June 24, 2013 11:00 pm 


After refusing to fight Price for the British title he fought cab driver Martin Rogan for the Irish title, taking him precisely 0% closer to a world title shot.

Winning a LOnsdale outright is prestigious for British fighters on their way up. Lennox did it. Price wants to do it.
The only reason Haye didn`t is that he was already above that level when he got to the division in terms of money and ranking.

Posted June 24, 2013 11:00 pm 


Squared-Circle, I agree with you a lot …. but Fury DID duck Price..

He gave up his British and Commonwealth rather than fight a super big money fight with David Price.. That was after Fury had a very rugged 2 fights with John McDermott … and Price smashed McDermott out easily in the 1st round. Price didn’t look weak chinned at the time.

Fury doesn’t walk the talk … and he’s ducking Haye.

Posted June 24, 2013 10:51 pm 

The Truth

Lion King – You are really trying hard to convince yourself of Fury not being a coward. You often make laughable rants when decisions, stories or the plain truth doesn’t go the way of your favourites. Hahahaha. Of course Fury ran from Price. You don’t drop 2 titles and face Rogan, because a win against Rogan will get you further from World Title fame than a win against Price. He ran from Pulev plain and simple, when a win would of given him a title shot. Now he is running from Haye after being shown as a coward by social media.

I am a Fury fan but asking for 80% is laughable, you don’t even deserve 50% mate.

I like how Haye has started looking for fights against credible contenders like Chisora and Fury, he needs to earn a Klitschko bout, he’s only one fight removed from a loss. Haye should fight Wilder, end the hype train.

Clear duck from Fury.

Posted June 24, 2013 10:00 pm 


Fury has just walked into someone who plays the media game and is a better talker than him.

Noone in the world thinks he deserves a bigger split than Haye.

He`s used Hayes name to get out of fighting Pulev, and now wants to extricate himself and fight safe until Wlad takes care of Pulev, but Haye has exposed him publically.

If he won`t take 50% of a Haye purse then he can`t offer money as any kind of motivation.
If he won`t take an eliminator vs Pulev he can`t offer rankings/title shot as a reason.

He has misunderstood the public here, since he is positioning himself to fight noone until the threats retire, when the biggest plus he had was the crazy gypsy fight anyone thing.

Posted June 24, 2013 6:49 pm

Really this needs to be highlighted. After calling out Price he then AVOIDED him when a serious offer was made. After calling out Wilder he then AVOIDED when another serious offer was made. After being ordered to fight Pulev for the right to fight Wlad for all the glory he AVOIDED that fight too. Now after calling out Haye and being offered the fight he is now once more AVOIDING.

Posted June 24, 2013 6:44 pm 


The truth is BOTH of these fighters have played delay and bait n switch games during their careers – Fury is just younger than Haye.

I think this could be a fairly entertaining fight. If Fury gets past the early rounds could be a hell of a night for Haye.

Agree – if truly on the table – 50/50 purse split is good for Fury. Don’t forget Fury is about as much of a draw as Haye. And while less accomplished than Haye, what exactly is Haye’s claim to HW glory? Barely dec. Valuev, stopping Harrison LOL? His best win at HW was most likely the KO of the rugged Chisora. Meh.

I’ve been a big fan of Tyson Fury, but if what David Haye says is true, that Fury declined a 50/50 split of what is sure to be one huge purse, then he’s lost a whole bunch of credibility with me. I don’t blame Fury if he doesn’t want to fight David Haye; it’s a dangerous fight that may derail his title fight aspirations; but if Tyson doesn’t want to fight he should stop talking like he wants the bout because public opinion being what it is, he might be forced to take the bout or lose his fanbase. Come on, Tyson Fury, I love the way you talk the talk, but sooner or later you have to walk the walk.

We’ll I’m not on Twitter so can’t go get the full story for myself. But I did go through all the Tweets on the ESB homepage (right-hand margin) and all I saw was Fury talking more trash to Haye… and Haye refusing to respond. So…. something is very fishy here.

Official negotiations for mega-million dollar boxing matches should never be done via Twitter. If that’s what Team Haye just did, then they just took the sport to a whole new low. Twitter is for making jokes, stupid little comments and talkin’ trash. Twitter is NOT the medium to be negotiating the terms of major prize fights.

I’ll have to learn all the background details before making a final conclusion about this clouded mess, that was apparently stirred-up via social media. One reason why I’ve NEVER been on Twitter or Facebook — and never will.

Posted June 24, 2013 5:41 pm 


@Squared-Circle…, Think about it bud… What are Fury’s people going to say??? They DIDN’T acknowledge Haye offered them a 50/50 split which nobody in the world thinks Fury deserves.. They DIDN’T acknowledge that Haye started pushing and negotiating hard for the fight..

They said, “We been ready from day No 1 and still are” … They’re ready??? FOR WHAT???

Not to sign for a 50/50 purse split.. Or to accept any reasonable offer coming from Haye’s people over the last week or so.. They don’t want to face Haye for ANYTHING that’s reasonable. They don’t want to fight.

It’s like Oscar De La Hoya offering Bernard Hopkins 25% of the money to 75% for De La Hoya and 24 hours to make his decision — and then going incommunicado. Bowie Fischer said, “It’s not a serious offer. It’s a bluff. We have to grab it. They just want to say they made us an offer and we didn’t accept it. Let’s catch them with their pants down.” Oscar had been known to make insincere offers to Mosley, Trinidad, etc. That gave all the money to Oscar.

The Fury team doesn’t want to face Haye, and get KTFO, and lose Fury’s marketing value as an undefeated heavyweight contender… But they do love free publicity and know how to bally hoo it up.

Posted June 24, 2013 5:34 pm

Posted June 24, 2013 3:42 pm 


FURY (a legend in his own mind) has done absolutely nothing in boxing to deserve a 50/50 split with David Haye. He should have been gateful, got on his knees and licked David’s boots and thanked him for that sort of offer.

Tyson reminds me of the dog with a bone in its mouth that spots a dog in the water with a bone in its mouth, not realising it is his own reflection!

In his greed and avarice, he tries to bark and grab the bone and in the process he loses the bone in his mouth and ends up with nothing!

Fitting summarisation of Fury’s career so far!

He’s done absolutely nothing but bark, without delivering any bite!

Posted June 24, 2013 3:08 pm 


Fury pulled out of fights with Price, Pulev, and Haye… He took fights with pushovers instead… There’s a pattern of behavior here.

He uses the fights that fans are drooling about to get a lot cheap publicity… Then he says the other side won’t meet his terms and pulls out… Going to 50/50 was a monster move by Haye… He obviously can see the monetary potential in the fight and did everything he could to get it … Why not out a four flusher on Twitter???

Fury wants no part of Haye as he and his family know it will be an easy night’s work for Haye. Fury will fight another journeyman for sure

Don’t really like Haye but 80/20 is ridiculous.

Fury is CRAZY! He thinks he’s worth more than 50/50 when he’s never won a world championship of any kind. He’d get knocked out so asking 80/20 in his favor is his way out. Looking at the big picture he avoided taking the fight which, if won, would have put him in front of Klitschko. There is no way that he could beat Klitschko so he didn’t take that path. The excuse? A possible big fight with Haye….he’s realized that too is a short path to losing his unbeaten record. His way out of that one? Ask for a ridiculous split that nobody in Haye’s position would accept. Solution: 80/20 to the winner, 50/50 in the event of a draw. Let see how Fury squirms his way out of that one.

If all of this is true it proves that Fury is all talk, calling out a fighter that has the goods to obliterate him, but hypes himself up in order to keep the money machine rolling. I don’t mind Fury, he adds a bit of entertainment to the heavyweight scene, but knows rightly that it’s only a matter of time before the brakes are slammed and the hype job is derailed.
