Fury blasts Haye, takes aim at Wilder

Unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury has blasted former world champion David Haye after Haye pulled out of their all British megafight for the second time. “I’m sick of his lame excuses,” Fury fumed to the Daily Mirror. “We knew David Haye wouldn’t take the fight. He’s a laughing stock. He is a celebrity wannabe boxer, who wants to pick and choose his opponents, maybe get beaten and cash his cheque afterwards. He should have retired when he said he was going to. He has turned boxing into a joke with his antics.”

Team Fury is now aiming to face unbeaten Deontay Wilder on February 8 instead of Haye and the Wilder camp is interested. Jay Deas, trainer and advisor to Wilder tweeted “@BronzeBomber wants it, so do I. Fury-Wilder HUGE fight. We will travel to fight in UK. Find a table and lets sit down at it and talk.”
