Fury: I could beat Deontay and Haye on the same night
By Scott Gilfoid: British heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) was getting a little lippy today on his twitter about American talent Deontay Wilder in response to him advising Fury to try and fight David Haye.
Fury seems to want the fight with the 32-year-old Haye, but it doesn’t look for the 6’8” Fury if that fight – or a fight with Deontay is ever made. I’m not holding my breath on Fury ever facing Wilder, not now, not ever.
Fury said on his twitter “At Bronzebomber: I see you like to kiss the a** of David Haye. I have beat the best USA heavyweights [??]! The rest are sh**…You and Haye are a pair of bi*** pu**y boys who I could beat together on the same night.”
Oh my, Fury seems to be getting heated in response to Deontay’s harmless comments. Deontay has called Fury out countless times but he can’t the 6’9” Fury to agree to fight him, so he’s basically written him off as being scared to take the fight.
It is odd that you see Fury facing the likes of Steve Cunningham, Martin Rogan and Vinny Maddalone, not agreeing to fight the hard hitting Wilder. How do you explain that kind of matchmaking other than coming to the conclusion that Fury doesn’t fancy his chances in beating the 6’7” knockout artist Wilder. You must admit that it does seem peculiar that Fury is facing lesser targets than Wilder.
Let’s be real about this: Both Deontay AND Haye would likely knock Fury out in the 1st round EACH if he ever were to fight them. I honestly can’t see Fury making it to the 2nd round if he faces either guy. Of course, Fury won’t get a shot against Deontay because if Haye knocks Fury out cold in the 1st round, Deontay isn’t going to waste time trying to get sloppy seconds.
Deontay won’t be interested in Fury at that point and I can’t blame him. Deontay’s career is going forward towards bigger and better things. He can’t be fighting guys coming off of knockout losses.
Golden Boy Promotions are hoping to match Deontay with the winner of the July match between David Price and Tony Thompson.
I can’t see Deontay getting the winner of that fight regardless of who comes out on top because neither guy seems eager to get in the ring with Wilder after what he did with Audley Harrison in knocking him out in one round last April. Deontay did a better job of knocking Audley out than Price did.
