Fury: Haye is going to sleep on September 28th
By Scott Gilfoid: The light hitting heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) is predicting a knockout of former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) in their fight next month on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in the UK. In other words, Fury thinks he’s going to accomplish what IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t do and that’s knock Haye out.
Not only is Fury flapping his gums about being able to stop Haye, but he’s also included the talented American heavyweight knockout artist Deontay Wilder on his list of heavyweights that he thinks he stop.
Fury said on his twitter “Hayemaker is going to sleep September 28 in my hometown of Manchester UK. Be there or miss the biggest heavyweight fight in British history. Line these b*** heavyweights up: Haye, [Seth] Mitchell, Wilder, Klitschko; line them up and I’ll knock them down. ASAP [as soon as possible], please.”
I’d like to see Fury knock even one of those fighters out on his list. Even the weakest guy on that list, who I personally feel is Seth Mitchell by far, would stand up to Fury’s slaps for 12 rounds with no problems. I could see Mitchell getting to Fury, though, long before the 12th round, because Mitchell can actually punch very hard. Mitchell is a damn good fighter when he has a guy in front of him with no power, and no defense. Fury would be tailor-made for him.
There’s not much to say about Deontay and Fury except to say that Fury would last about as long as Sergei Liakhovich did last Friday night. No, I take that back. I think Fury wouldn’t even last as long as Liakhovich before Deontay knocked him out with a big right hand.
As far as advice for Fury in terms of his fight with Haye, I think he needs to try and use his feet to stay as far away from Haye as possible, because once Haye gets near him, it’ll be all over. Haye will brain him with a right hand to the head, and Fury will hit the deck in a heap of arms and legs. But if Fury runs, and leans his head far backwards to keep from getting hit, he might be able to last a 4 or 5 rounds before Haye knocks him out with a body punch.
