TitoFan on this one. Haye hasn't done jack. Let's see him fight Wilder first.
He also previously signed up to fight Haye twice and Haye pulled out both times. If anything, Haye ran from Fury. I can completely understand how Fury would be opposed to facing Haye now.
Speaking of Wilder and Povetkin, how high are the chances that Wilder vacates his belt to avoid facing Povetkin? How many non-title defenses against no-hopers will he take before he faces Povetkin? Wilder didn't even think he was ready to face Wlad when Fury faced the ex-champ.
Make sure to keep it all in correct perspective: Fury has proved he was willing to face Haye in the past - Haye pulled out. Haye got blanked by Wlad; Fury beat Wlad. Wilder wouldn't wasn't ready to face Wlad and Fury fought and beat Wlad. Povetkin lost to Wlad.
How about we give Fury a nice round of applause? And hold off on critiquing him until he actually avoids a fight because so far he hasn't avoided anyone and went after the toughest fight in the division.

In total agreement. Fury may not have the most fan-pleasing style of fighting... or maybe that's just the way he fought against Wlad. But of all the HW's in the mix right now, he's the only one who's been willing to take the most risk. Wilder certainly hasn't... and his baby steps are beginning to annoy the sh*t out of me. (Seems after Stiverne he's taken two steps backward). Haye, well..... I can't even talk about Haye without saying a few choice bad words.
Let's see how this will all pan out. I always maintained that a Fury victory over Wlad was the best thing that could happen to the division, and I was right. All of a sudden fighters are coming out of the woodwork to challenge Fury. Or if they haven't yet, they will soon.
What are the big risks Fury took before the jackpot Wlad fight? I know you weren't paying much attention across the pond but there seems a huge revisionist history push to make Fury something he ain't.
Fighting in 3 eliminators to face Wlad?
You can now see why people like Arreola and Adamek wanted none of Tyson Fury. They and other fighters have been offered fights. Anyway, as much as people want to piss on his chips hes THE heavyweight champion of the workd! The best fighter in the world!
The revisionists are those that prior to this fight said Fury had no chance, Wlad was on top of his game and leagues above the whole division. Now, Wlad got old and Wilder, Joshua and Haye could all beat Tyson and Wlad on the same night!
Fury won his fight by just fighting like Wlad, it was like he was fighting a younger faster clone of himself,
the fight was not a classic was it,! Fury against Haye it makes sense a really big money domestic dust up
and one I would watch, Tyson will face him if the money is right,! open air stadium full to the rafters,
of course it would sell out, a fight that can happen.
