David Haye Vows: Tyson Fury Will Only Last Two Rounds

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE has told ­punters to back him to KO Tyson Fury inside two rounds on September 28. The Londoner hopes to stop his ­British rival in Manchester and put himself back into contention for one of the world titles held by the ­Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali.

Haye, 32, insists he has no worries ahead of facing 6ft 9in Fury, 25, after what he describes as his toughest training camp.

The former WBA world heavyweight champion has sparred with American prospect Deontay Wilder – and believes fighting unbeaten Fury will be much easier.

And Haye does not expect the Mancunian to last long as he will be looking to close the show early.

He said: “He doesn’t get under my skin, he’s just laughable. He’s that bad, he’s made me look good.

“I’m expecting him to raise his game but I don’t see him going past two rounds. I don’t see him going into the third.

“The way I’ve been punching, I feel ready to explode all over him – in a boxing sense.

“I’ve had a year out and the sparring I’ve been doing will be harder than the fight itself.

“I’m hoping I can give the fans value for money – but I can’t see it.

“If I was a betting man, which I’m not because it’s against the rules, I would go for the second round.”

Haye hopes beating Fury will set up a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, who outpointed him two years ago, or with the Ukrainian’s elder sibling Vitali.

He added: “Once I get rid of him, I will be knocking on the door for a ­title shot.”

For me it's tysons fight to win or lose it just depends what Tyson turns up? If he performs as badly as he did against cunningham it's just about guaranteed that haye smashes him early I guess we'll have to…

Does this mean he plans on playing it safe all 12?
