Tyson Fury back in UK from Belgium training camp

By Scott Gilfoid: The big 6’9” heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) is back in Britain from his Belgium training camp and ready for the final push for his September 28th make or break fight against David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) at the Manchester Arena, according to the Daily Mail.

Fury opted to go to Belgium rather than stay in the UK because he wanted fewer distractions while preparing for this crucial fight. Fury thinks that if he beats Haye then it’ll lead to him getting a title shot against IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. Who knows if that’s possible?

I guess it would depend on whether Wladimir was interested in knocking Fury out now or if he was more interested in letting the fight build by making Fury beat more opponents. However, this is all mumbo jumbo basically because Fury’s chances of beating Haye are so incredibly small that it’s almost laughable to talk about Fury fighting for a world title against Wladimir in 2014, 2015, 2016 or 2017.

A brutal knockout loss to Haye will send Fury so far down the food chain that he may never get a title shot against the big 6’6” Ukrainian before he retires from the sport one of these days.

Fury might not make it out of the 1st round against Haye if he chooses to come at him right off the bat. Haye is capable of pulling off a quick knockout against Fury, because he’s a lot less less skilled than some of the guys that Haye has been fighting at heavyweight.

Next month Fury plans on taking part in a kick boxing match on October 25th in Romania. That could turn out to be a disaster as well, because learning to kick box at a high level take a heck of a long time. I can just see Fury getting knocked out by some less than high quality kick boxer. Of course, they’re not going to put Fury in with a super good kick boxer, but it might not matter. When you’re new to a sport then you’re kind of at the mercy to guys that have been fighting in that sport for ages and have paid their dues.
