Cancelled David Haye fight has left Tyson Fury broke

It’s just over a year ago that British Heavyweight Tyson Fury was all set to land the fight of his life and a huge payday with a date set against former world champion David Haye which would have seen him pocket a cool £ 10 million.

But twice after a date for the bout had been set, his rival pulled out of the fight at the last possible minute, leaving Fury empty handed and furious. His bad luck continued when his scheduled bout against Dereck Chisora this past July was also postponed due to an injury sustained by his rival.

And that has led Fury to count the cost of his inactivity this past one year.

According to Fury, he is in such dire straits and need of cash that he cannot even afford to pay the £ 15,000 fine that has been imposed on him by the British Boxing Board of Control for a foul mounted rant at a press conference earlier this summer.

Fury, who still hopes to set up a fight against David Haye sometime in the future, said that the board must wait until after the rescheduled fight for him to make the payment, adding that he is not going to run away for as little as fifteen grand.

Around this time last year, Fury was set for his biggest payday after his proposed clash against the former World Boxing Association or WBA Heavyweight champion David Haye was sanctioned and a date set for a fight at the Manchester Arena.

Fury said that one time, he was rubbing his hands in glee as he had struck a lottery but now he is absolutely broke. He says the cost for training is a lot and one can’t prepare for all that and he hopes things will turn with the Chisora fight.

The Picture Of Perseverance: Dominick Cruz

The reality of a fighter is that the one who can get up even after he faces the punches and the setbacks, make a mark in the world and rise above all and those who cannot tolerate this are usually carried away and never have a chance in a sport like this. Dominick Cruz has been facing and tolerating every pain the game has given him in the last three years.

In a sport as violent as MMA the injuries are a mere thing now but Team Alliance got a shock as they had no idea how devastating n setback that seemed very little can actually be. Today athletes even come back from knee injuries and so Cruz was pretty confident that he would come back to the Octagon very soon. Unfortunately, it did not work out as he expected as one injury led to several other setbacks that could destroy his career. His determination showed the world that there is a life beyond self-pity.

Now that he has recovered and there is only two weeks left to the night of the fight, Cruz is having a different feeling. The last time he was in Octagon, he was the best bantamweight champion. He became the last fighter to hoist the UFC 135pound title and got the WEC crown. Between the years 2008-2011, Cruz has given the world the best performances ever seen one after another and showed that he had the skill to have the tile of being legendary. Although at first he won his games depending on speed, athletics and wrestling, with time he learnt to make his footwork the most strong point in a fight as the opponent always has a tough time solving the riddle.

Cruz says that his goal is to create history in the world of mixed martial arts and also become the best fighter that has ever competed. He wants to earn his position back by entering the mix all over again.

Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold set to lock horns

The Dragon as he is known as Lyoto Machida is a renowned name in the UFC Championship but he does not continue to remain the same mysterious invidual as he was a few years ago when he won the lightweight championship for the first time. The experts had identified as the next big thing but he failed to come up to expectations in the past few months. The stiff challenge that is coming up for him in the near future is the match up against Luke Rockhold. Luke Rockhold has been having a stiff competition going on between him and Michael Bisping but it has been kept on bay by the UFC President Dana White. Going by the current standings of the player the fight between Lyoto Machida and Luke Rokchold seems to be apt. Both of these players will be raring to go against each other and the fans can be ensured of a great match up.

The different style of the fighters will also be something to watch out for. Both of them are poles apart in this regard. While Lyoto Machida prefers staying back and waits for his opponents to make mistakes, his counterpart is an aggressive persona on and off the field. The fans are looking forward to catch this match and each of them is looking forward to this opportunity to prove their worth in front of the crowd. The most intriguing part of the duel is going to be the strategy that each of them is going to follow. Machida had never been a fan favorite but his last match up where he put up a stiff challenge to his opponent despite trailing by three games to none proved to be a major positive point for the fighter. The crowd shouted for his success anticipating one of the best comebacks of UFC.
