Haye: Fury’s delusional; people want to see him knocked out
By Scott Gilfoid: David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) thinks unbeaten Tyson Fury’s perception of himself is out of touch with reality, as he sees him as little more than just an easy stay busy fight to keep active while waiting to get a much bigger fight against one of the Klitschko brothers.
Haye feels the boxing public wants Fury to get knocked out and he’s merely doing a service by knocking him out on September 28th in their fight at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
Haye said to Sky Sports “It’s [Fury fight] marking time fight to keep me active, keep the fans happy. He’s really delusional and everybody wants to see this guy get knocked spark out. Who better to do it than myself? He says crazy things…I think he can be dangerous on his day and he’s young and fresh…just watch a clip of Tyson Fury. The guy is a lunatic.”
I see this fight as pretty much a replay of Haye vs. John Ruiz except with a much quicker ending. I don’t think Fury will be able to take the punishment that Ruiz took for 9 rounds before he gets taken out. There’s also a possibility that Fury could get gas out early in this fight like David Price did last Saturday night against Tony Thompson.
Fury looked pretty weak-legged last April by the 4th round against Steve Cunningham. Fury was standing straight up by that point in that fight and not using his legs anymore to get leverage on his shots. The fact that he got a stoppage was more due to Cunningham just being a spent force. He was too tired himself to do anything once he knocked Fury down in the 2nd round.
This pretty much is just a stay busy fight for Haye. Fury has nothing to beat him. He doesn’t have Wladimir Klitschko’s jab, hand speed, power, mobility, experience or talent. Fury doesn’t have Carl Thompson’s power or his chin. He can’t do what those two fighters did to Haye due to his limited talent.
