According to a news release from Sky Sports, Tyson Fury is still committed to and anxious for a fight between he and David Haye to happen. An understandably angry Fury, upon hearing how Haye’s cut injury had postponed the Sept. 28th showdown, said he would move on and leave the Haye fight behind. However, though Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessey has said Fury is looking to fight again soon, against a suitable opponent who is now being searched for, the Haye fight is being pencilled on for early next year.
“Tyson is in his best shape mentally and physically and he is ready to fight. We are talking with all parties with regard to him fighting again soon,” Hennessey said. “In the meantime we are working on re-scheduling the Haye fight as soon as possible. In an ideal situation we would like it to happen in December but realistically we are looking at early next year.”
Hennessey added how Fury is “furious” at the fight being postponed, wanting even more to “knock David Haye out.”
As intriguing as this all-British heavyweight collision is, it’s good news for fans that it will still go down in 2014. It will of course be interesting to see who Fury agrees to fight before next year rolls around. Another question entirely is, what would happen if Fury were to box again this year but lost. Would such a scenario forever kill a Fury-Haye showdown?
