    Default Haye Fury back on for FEB 8 2014

    David Haye vs. Tyson Fury rescheduled for 8 Feb 2014


    Former WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye will now face unbeaten Tyson Fury on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at Manchester's Phones 4u Arena, following the postponement of their original date in September.

    The outspoken heavyweight pair were scheduled to box at the same venue this Saturday (September 2, in what was billed as the British fight of the year, but a cut to Haye's left eye, picked up in sparring last Friday, scuppered the fight and the entire event.

    Nevertheless, after working hard to secure a second date, Hayemaker Boxing and Hennessy Sports are delighted to have been able to reschedule the highly-anticipated encounter and give the fans what they want – and deserve.

    “News of the date in February is music to my ears,” said Haye. “I was absolutely devastated this weekend, and felt as though I'd let a lot of people down. But now, with this new date, I couldn't be happier.

    “My fans will still get the chance to see what they all wanted to see this weekend - they'll get to see Tyson Fury sparked out in a spectacular fashion.”

    Since news of the pull-out broke, Haye has faced criticism from sceptics, including Fury and his team, curious as to why he chose to spar just eight days before a blockbuster pay-per-view event. Yet the former two-weight world champion insists all was on schedule.

    “Sparring eight days before a fight is nothing new or unusual,” said the Londoner. “I've done this before fights in the past and never had an issue.

    “Also, look at the history books. George Foreman sparred and got cut eight days before his 'Rumble in the Jungle' with Muhammad Ali – causing a six-week postponement - and Sugar Ray Leonard sparred and got knocked down five days before his fight with Marvin Hagler, but still managed to go on and win.

    “Foreman and Leonard are two of the greatest fighters of all-time, so if it was good enough for them, it's certainly good enough for little old me. Not only that, those guys were preparing to face the likes of Ali and Hagler, while I was preparing to fight Tyson Fury, a man whose greatest triumph to date is shedding a few stone on Belgium's Biggest Loser fat camp.

    “These things sometimes happen in training, and to suggest I decided against wearing a head-guard, or that the cut was premeditated, shows a clear lack of knowledge and understanding. This camp was no different to any other, aside from the fact it ended on an unlucky and sour note.”

    Unlucky and sour, the trickle of blood from his left eye couldn't have come at a worse time for Haye. However, with a new date of February 8 to look forward to, he's ready to move on and come back better than ever.

    “Tyson Fury might start to get brave now that he's received a stay of execution – and he might call me names and accuse me of ducking him – but that will all be short-lived, I can promise you,” said Haye.

    “After hearing the nonsense he has come out with in the last few days, I'm even more determined to expose him in front of millions. And only the possibility of getting another chance to land punches on his massive head and doughy gut has helped cheer me up.

    “The cut will heal, the fight will happen next year, and the fans will go home happy. The only difference now is that Tyson Fury gets an even nastier beat-down than he would have received first time round.

    “Once again, I'd like to apologise to the fans for the inconvenience caused by the postponement, and also because they will now have to endure a few more months of rubbish spewing from the mouth of Tyson Fury. I had hoped to silence him for good on Saturday night.”

    *** IMPORTANT: Tickets previously purchased for the original date of September 28 are automatically valid for this new date of February 8. Alternatively, fans looking for a refund are advised to go back to their point of purchase before October 31 ***

    That must mean Fury is not allowed a "gimee" fight before then.

    Yeah, he says Foreman Ali was postponed 6 weeks, Froch Ward was also postponed 7 weeks but Haye needs 19 weeks!

    Basically a whole new camp!

    Hopefully Tyson does get a fight in between. Take one of Hayes other sparring partners. Wach or Dimitrenko, whatever just stay busy.

    Shame it's so long away but it was always unlikely to be re-scheduled in 2013. October/early November was out because of the cut, and late November/December wasn't viable because of the Froch-Groves PPV. It would be good if Fury could take a stay busy fight in the meantime but there's too much money on the table to risk it unless it's a total gimme.

    Exactly. The extra delay is just about business. They can't have a PPV just before or after Christmas.

    Your too harsh on fury.

    Fury just wants to be the best like everyone else and so far hes still undefeated.

    Im not confident of him beating haye but fury would provide a lot more heart against the klits than haye did.

    Come on now. Be honest.

    Did you favour fury over any of his opponents?

    I never thought he would get this far..

    The flab is receeding and slight improvements are happening.

    Let me explain , fury had already signed to fight Haye a man with power , however Haye pulled out due to injury , hence the reversed sarcasm.
    Its much better if I don't have to explain.

    Im talking about the history of fury.

    Has your opinion changed of him?

    Do you think he has got better?

    Fury is what he is . his fitness has got better for sure , he now looks like a fighter , however I just don't buy him as someone who is going to the top , he is to chinny and lacks power.

    That's a long time for Tyson Fury to wait without fighting.
