The much anticipated fight between the two British boxers, David Haye and Tyson Fury, has finally been set a date as they will clash on 28th September in Manchester’s MEN Arena. The two have been having a few words before the fight, like all boxers do, with Tyson Fury certain that he can defeat the former World Champion. However, David Haye has again reacted saying there is no way that Tyson has any chance against him, despite Fury still being an unbeaten boxer.
Tyson Fury has claimed that he will not only win the fight against David Haye, but that he will also knock him out. Fury commented, “To beat David Haye you have to be game, you have to be strong and willing. It does not come down to boxing and technique and all that. I am knocking him out for sure.” Tyson Fury has an impressive record of taking part in 21 fights, winning them all and dishing out 15 knock-outs. Fury has only been a professional since 2008 meaning he has much less experience than Haye, but he arguably has a better record.
David Haye has the advantage of having much more experience in the sport than Fury as Haye turned professional in 2002, 6 years earlier than his soon to be opponent. However, David Haye cannot boast the fact that he is unbeaten as he has fought 28 times winning 26, knocking-out 24. His first loss in 2004 was against Carl Thompson in a ‘youth vs experience’ fight, Thompson was 40 years old and Haye was only 23. Then, his biggest and most recent loss was against Wladimir Klitschko where David Haye lost and claimed that he was fighting with a broken toe.
To this day David Haye still wants a re-match against Klitschko and has called this match against Fury a “whole circus act.” After his loss to Wladimir Klitschko, the victor’s brother, Vitali Klitschko, was giving a lot of talk about fighting Haye, but nothing really came of it leaving Haye to fight against Chisora in his most recent fight. Haye and Chisora had a brawl previously during a press conference and they finally settled their feud in the ring as Haye came out on top via a knock-out.
Looking forward to this match against Tyson Fury, keeping in mind that David Haye has a better win to knock-out ratio, he commented, “It has always been my ambition to get the fight back with Wlad and win that fight. His brother Vitali made a lot of noise of wanting to fight me but he’s gone quiet since then. This guy [Fury] has made a lot of noise and a lot of people want to see him get knocked out, so I am going to do that.” Who do you think will come out on top?
