Fury to Haye: Sign the contract; I’m going to rip your head off pretty boy
By Scott Gilfoid: Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) no doubt must have read the news about David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) saying he hasn’t agreed to fight him because Fury is now telling Haye to sign the contract because he wants to give him a beating. Last Saturday night, Fury jumped the gun by saying that the fight between him and Haye was “99% done.” Haye laughed at this, saying he hadn’t agreed to anything.
Here’s what Haye’s response was to Fury on his twitter: “I read that Fury thinks a fight with me and himself is ‘99% Done’ HAHA At best i’d say there’s Light Discussions, that are moving slowly. For everyone asking if I’m fighting Fury. I currently have no agreement, or contract in place. But a fight later in the year would be fun.”
So there it is. If Fury wants a fight he’s going to have to do some waiting. I hope Fury doesn’t make a mistake of trying to slip a fight in between because if he looks as awful as he did last April in his win over Steven Cunningham then I can definitely see Fury getting knocked out. His chin is too fragile for him to be fighting guys with any kind of power. I mean, if a former cruiserweight like Cunningham was able to have Fury down on the canvas just imagine what a full-fledged heavyweight with power would do to him. It would be bad.
Fury said this today on his twitter: “David Haye, I want you sucker, so sign the contract and let me rip your f ing head off pretty boy. David Haye, you’re gonna get it boy. Within 5/6 rounds spark out.”
Fury is just going to have to wait. The fight has to be negotiated and those things take time. Fury needs to make sure he doesn’t scare Haye off by asking for too big of a slice of the financial pie for the fight. Haye obviously is going to get the lion’s share of the fight because he’s the name and a former two division world champion.
Fury doesn’t have those credentials. He’s the Irish heavyweight champion. Somehow I don’t think that’s going to be enough for Fury to get anywhere close to a 50-50 deal with Haye. If I’m Haye, I’m offering Fury an 80-20 deal, take it or leave it.
