Haye-Fury has new date of February 8th – but Team-Fury not convinced, say Haye might “cry off again”

fury54David Haye and Tyson Fury will now meet on February 8th of next year, various media reports have confirmed. The fight, postponed due to Haye suffering a cut eye in sparring, will still take place at The Phones 4U Arena in Manchester.

Haye is delighted with the news:

“I was absolutely devastated this weekend, and felt as though I’d let a lot of people down. But now, with this new date, I couldn’t be happier,” Haye said. “My fans will still get the chance to see what they all wanted to see this weekend – they’ll get to see Tyson Fury sparked out in spectacular fashion. Fury might start to get brave now that he’s received a stay of execution – and he might call me names and accuse me of ducking him – but that will all be short-lived, I can promise you.

Haye-Fury is off, but could next Saturday’s show be saved? – How about Fury-Deontay Wilder?

wilder33Whenever a big, exciting fight is cancelled, as bad as it is for the fighters who would have headlined the action, it’s also time to have some sympathy for the under-card fighters and of course the fans who have bought tickets to the show. Fans, and under-card stars such as Scott Quigg and Yoandris Salinas (who would have fought for the vacant WBA super-bantamweight title) are currently reeling over the news of next Saturday’s Tyson Fury-David Haye fight being postponed due to Haye suffering a nasty cut in sparring.

The main event is obviously now destined to take place at a later date, but could next Saturday’s show be saved? I think it can be. Here’s how. Instead of scrapping the whole card, why can’t Tyson Fury get it on with a suitably intriguing/Box Office-worthy late replacement? You know who would, in my mind at least, be ideal? Deontay Wilder.

David Haye “gutted” at having to postpone Tyson Fury fight due to cut eye

If fans didn’t know already, September 28th’s all-British clash between Tyson Fury and David Haye has been postponed due to Haye suffering a cut above his left eye during training.

Haye suffered the injury on Friday evening and will require six stitches. According to reports, the stitches will remain in place for five to seven days and Haye is waiting on further medical advice when it comes to when he will be able to return to action.

Haye’s injury could be good thing for Tyson Fury

fury2222With the news today about former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye suffering a cut during sparring for his fight next week against Tyson Fury, it means that the fight will be postponed or possibly be even cancelled depending on whether Team Fury still wants to reschedule. However, it might be in Fury’s best interest to forget about facing Haye altogether, because it’s not as if Fury stood a real chance at winning the fight.

The odds were heavily in Haye’s favor to the point where it was hardly worth it for Fury to take the fight. Let’s be honest here; does anyone really think that the 6’9″, fragile-chinned Fury had any actual chance to beat Haye in this fight?

Fury doesn’t have the power, speed or the chin to have any chance at beating a big puncher like Haye. That’s why this injury might actually be the best thing for Fury because it let’s him move on and save face at the same time. I mean, Fury now has a ready-made excuse for why he shouldn’t have to face Haye now, and no one will blame him if he moves on and resumes fighting the likes of Martin Rogan, Kevin Johnson and Vinny Maddalone-types.
