Tyson Fury: I’m going to put Haye out of his misery
By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated British heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) thinks former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye’s seen his best days, and he feels it’s his time to accomplish things in the sport of boxing, not Haye. Fury says he wants to finish off the 32-year-old Haye when he gets him in the ring on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in the UK.
The weird part is Fury is hoping that Haye comes in and tries to slug with him, because he thinks it’ll be easy to KO Haye then it would be if he fought defensively like he did against Nikolay Valuev.
Fury said “He’s had his glory days. He’s done what he’s going to do, and I’m just going to put him out of his misery, because this is my time to shine. If he wants to come for a slinging match from word one, then that will play into my hands because I’ll keep a tight defense…if he thinks he’s in for an easy ride or he thinks he is going to fight someone like [John] Ruiz again…he’ll be waking up before Christmas.”
This is kind of funny. I mean, I know there are heavyweights out there like Deontay Wilder and Tony Thompson that would likely put Haye out if his misery if he ever made the mistake to fight them, but I don’t picture the light hitting slapper Fury as having the power or the skills to be the one that sends Haye into a permanent retirement. It takes power to do that, and Fury doesn’t have any of that.
I see Haye putting Fury out of his misery rather than the other way around; although I don’t think for a second Fury would choose to retire if and when Haye knocks him out. Fury will simply reload after facing another group of 2nd tier fighters to get himself within striking distance of a title fight like he’s at now. We could see Fury get to the same point where he is now many times in his career only to be smacked down viciously whenever he faces a halfway decent heavyweight with a punch.
