Fury and trainer now want new Haye date set

By Scott Gilfoid: Yesterday it was looking like Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) and his trainer Peter Fury were turned off at the idea of sitting around and waiting for 2-6 months for David Haye’s cut to heal, but today it looks like both of them have had a change of mind about it.

Fury seems to be chomping at the bit wanting to get the fight, and Peter doesn’t seem to mind the idea either.


Peter said on his twitter “Haye can have this fight with Tyson 1000%.”

Fury said “I always said don’t be pulling out [of]] this fight. Make it happen.”

Now that Haye can see that both Fury and Peter are seemingly eager for the fight, he should now move on to someone else instead of facing Fury. Haye has them right where he wants them.

If they want the fight then they can come chasing Haye and agree to whatever he wants them to. Why give in when you got them eager for the fight to the point where they’re backtracking.

Haye has plenty of options besides Fury. Haye could fight Deontay Wilder on HBO, he could Dereck Chisora again, and he could fight some of the top heavyweight contenders such as Bryant Jennings or Tony Thompson.

Any one of those fights would be a better fight than Haye fighting Fury. That’s not even an interesting fight because Fury lacks the power, speed, defense and chin to compete against Haye.

Haye should focus on fighting someone that will actually help him in staying sharp for one of the Klitschko brothers, and I believe that Fury will give Haye absolutely nothing in that regard.

Fury is the opposite of the Klitschko brothers in terms of talent and power. That’s why Haye it’s hardly worth it for Haye to be fighting Fury, because if anything, it’s going to have Haye developing bad habits by having him walk forward to slug it out. He can do that against the light hitting Fury, but he can’t do that against Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko.
