Peter Fury: David Haye will be an easier fight for Fury than people think
By Scott Gilfoid: Peter Fury, the trainer for unbeaten Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s), sees the 6’9” Fury having an easy time beating former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.
Peter has a secret strategy that he’s going to have the 25-year-old Fury use to easily control and negate any advantages the faster, stronger and much more mobile Haye has going for him.
Peter said to Sky Sports, “I don’t think it’s going to be as hard a fight as people think it is…I think it’s going to be a lot easier and people are going to be shocked at how Tyson deals with it.”
It’s pretty obvious what Fury will be doing to try and beat the 32-year-old Haye. Fury will try and get Haye in close and rough him up, lean on him, give the forearm across the face like he did against Steve Cunningham last April, In other words, Fury will try to use his size and weight advantage to beat the smaller Haye.
That’s about all Fury can do to try and win the fight, because if he’s incapable of fighting an outside fight due to his inability to extend his arms far out in front of him to throw jabs. Fury is just like David Price in that respect. Neither of these guys is capable of using their reach to throw jabs from long distance.
Instead, Fury throws his jabs at medium range and is never outside of the reach of his opponents, even his shorter ones. The only time Fury has an advantage over his smaller opponents is when he leans all over them and roughs them up.
Other than that, the only thing that Fury has going for him is he tends to throw a lot of punches. If you can’t keep up with him, he’ll beat you that way, but it won’t be pretty and he’ll take a lot of head shots.
Where this fight is different from the fodder that Fury has been facing is that he’s going to be facing a much better puncher than anyone he’s fought before. Haye is going to be nailing Fury with huge shots and I can’t see him being able to take Haye’s shots for 12 rounds without hitting the deck a half dozen times and either losing by a decision or getting stopped.
