Booth Says Fury is Making a Mistake By Facing Haye

David Haye's manager and trainer, Adam Booth, believes Tyson Fury is making a mistake by accepting a fight with Haye. The grudge match will take place on September 28 in Manchester. Booth doesn't think Fury has enough experience and taking on Haye, a very experienced two-division world champion, is the wrong move at this moment in time. He doesn't expect Fury to be any better when the fight takes place in two months time.

Booth told Sky Sports News: "I really like Tyson Fury. I think he's doing a fantastic job of selling himself. Because I love boxing I want people other than hardcore boxing fans to want to see it. Guys like Tyson Fury, and David, bring those people in. It's great that everyone wants to watch this fight.

"As a fighter, over the past 12 months he's improved immensely and he's improving very quickly. Huge kudos to his coach Peter Fury. But having said that, even with another nine weeks improvement I'm as confident as I can be that this fight isn't right for Tyson Fury at this moment in time. He still has a good career ahead of him, it's just that on September 28 I expect David to be the one who's holding his hand high."

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;13607599]I just think you are being very basic over why he's a good trainer. David Haye is obviously a naturally talented fighter with speed and power. Haye has arguably underachieved - he is virtually the only guy in…

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;13607558]He's overrated as hell. His tactics are so basic. Run, feint, run, run, run, run, feint, run, feint, feint, THROW A PUNCH, run, run, feint, feint, run. Round over. And who could forget the genius of wearing red…
