Legendary English boxer David Haye doesn’t believe that his countryman Tyson Fury is too serious about getting inside the ring with him. Haye, a former two division world champion believes that Fury is only using him as a tool to make a name for himself and isn’t that keen to finalize the deal that will see the two Englishmen go head to head with a £ 10 million blockbuster fight late in September. The fight is being mooted to take place in Manchester or London.
According to the 33 year old Haye, Fury has already called out several fighters in the past and came very close to securing some of those fights as well and in turn, huge paydays against the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and David Price to name a few. However, he managed to find some excuse or the other to back out and walk away from those and this is something that is making David Haye inclined to think that he is being used in the same manner.
According to Haye, Fury, who has a record of 21-0 with 15 knockout wins under his belt called out David Price, then announced he would fight Wladimir and then named a few others as well. But he didn’t end up fighting anyone he called out and now, he apparently wants to take him on. He is however unsure that the fight will happen but he hopes that it does happen.
David Haye mentioned that Fury is a guy who always says he wants a certain fight and then shies away from it. But he stated that he is eager for the fight to happen although by his own admission, the future of the fight doesn’t depend on him but on Fury and the people who advise him on things.
