Fury to Haye “I know what you just done”

By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) is furious with the news that David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) suffered a bad cut in sparring, causing their September 28th big money fight to be postponed. Fury appears to be suspicious about the circumstances surrounding the cut.

Fury said on his twitter “Delay or pu**y job. He [Haye] can never beat me…just like I know what you just done, s*** house. Get me a real man to fight. Get this Bollywood clown of a fighter back in the ring with Tyson Fury. I always said don’t be pulling out this fight. Make it happen.”

I think Haye was just nervous about the Fury fight, and because of that he made the stupid mistake of sparring up until 1 week before the fight. Haye needed to back off with his sparring at least 2 weeks before the fight, but it looks like he wanted to spar up until the fight for some reason.

Personally, I think it’s stupid as heck, and I would be worried if I was Fury about whether Haye will ever make it to a fight in one piece if he’s going to be sparring until the last minute.

Fury is in a situation now where he’s either going to have to wait until David Haye’s cut heals or he’s going to need to move on against some of the other heavyweights that have shown an interest in stepping in to face him.

Both Dereck Chisora and Tony Thompson are interested in facing Fury, but Fury hasn’t responded back to either of them. Tony Thompson sent a tweet to Fury’s trainer Peter Fury on Saturday, saying that he’s interested in stepping in to face Fury on short notice, but he was met with complete silence from Peter.

So you see it’s not as if Fury doesn’t have heavyweights that are interested in facing him now. The problem seems to be that Fury is saying he wants another fight while he waits for Haye’s cut to heal, but it doesn’t look like Fury is all that interested in actually taking on these heavyweights.

I’m pretty sure that the 6’7” American heavyweight Deontay Wilder would take a fight with Fury in a heartbeat if it were offered to him, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for Deontay to have that fight offered to him. Deontay hits too hard and we’ve already seen what happens to Fury when he gets hit by non-punchers like Steve Cunningham.

Deontay is probably on the bottom of the list for a possible replacement opponent for Fury.

My guess is Fury will flap his gums for the next 2 weeks about wanting to fight someone else while he waits for Haye’s cut to heal, but at the end of the day I see Fury waiting until Haye’s cut heals rather than taking on another opponent.

The money for the Haye fight is too good for Fury not to wait, and there’s just too much danger for Fury if he takes on another heavyweight like Wilder or Tony Thompson.
