Fury plans on sending Haye into retirement

David Haye Tyson FuryBy Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) isn’t satisfied with just trying to beat David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) on September 28th in their fight at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.

Fury wants to send the 32-year-old Haye into permanent retirement. I guess it’s some kind of thing where the 6’9” Fury will feel validated as a fighter if he’s the one that sends Haye into his retirement. I don’t understand it, but to each his own.

Fury said this – “After I have sorted him out in the ring, there will be nowhere left for him to go. He will be finished. This could well be Haye’s last fight, believe me. But it will be one of many more for Tyson Fury as I had for the world title. If anybody can carry that torch for British boxing, then it’s me.”

Now that’s a scary thought. Fury carrying the torch for British boxing heading towards a title shot against Wladimir Klitschko. It’s a massacre waiting to happen. If we play pretend for a moment and assume that Fury does beat Haye, it’s going to be a total slaughter if you toss Fury into the ring with Wladimir.

That would be like picking someone at random from the crowd and shoving him into the ring and giving him the old ‘Good luck.’ Fury doesn’t have to tools to compete with Wladimir, and it would be a sickening mismatch if you ever saw one.

I don’t see how Fury is going to be able to defeat a guy like Haye. First off, Fury’s jab is too limp to keep Haye on the outside for even a fraction of a second. As soon as Fury throws one of his limp jabs. Haye will either block it and nail him with a right to the head or dodge it and smash Fury in the head.

Either way, Fury’s going to get nailed in the mandible with a big shot and sent down flat on his back on the canvas. It’ll be like a replay of Fury’s fight against Steve Cunningham, but I see Fury visiting the canvas in the 1st round and not the second. If Fury gets up, Haye is going to make sure he puts him out of his misery by finishing him off with some well-placed power shots to the head.
