Fury: Forget Price, Haye is UK's Best, Bring Him On!

TYSON FURY says that a blockbuster Battle of Britain with David Haye is now almost certain to take place.

Heavyweight Fury has confirmed Starsport’s exclusive story last week that a megabucks clash between the pair is now a definite possibility.

Unbeaten Fury revealed that he spoke with Haye’s trainer Adam Booth at ringside during James DeGale’s win over Stjepan Bozic in Bluewater, Kent, on Saturday.

Fury said: “I was minding my own business when I bumped into Adam Booth at ringside and we started talking.

“So I just asked him, ‘Why is the David Haye fight not being done?’ Then Adam said, ‘Do you want the fight?’

“So I said to him, ‘Yes, two million percent. The ball is in your court so call me and let’s talk more.’ He said he couldn’t see why this fight can’t be done. So I got it straight from the horse’s mouth.

“Adam Booth says he wants this fight so that makes the fight look a real 99 percent chance to me.”

Fury had earlier paved the way for a contest with Haye by withdrawing from his summer fight against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, which could have earned him a mandatory shot at IBF champ Wladimir Klitschko.

Haye’s intended fight with German Manuel Charr had earlier been postponed because of the Londoner’s hand injury.

That leaves the way clear for a Fury-Haye fight.

Fury added: “Bring it on. David Haye is by far the best heavyweight in Britain. Forget David Price. I want Haye next.”

[QUOTE=yoz;13461883]Its not win-win for Mick Hennessy.[/QUOTE] Yeah I got the impression he had no interest in the fight. From that video it sounded to me like there hadn't even been negotiations. Fury was due to announce his fight on June…

[QUOTE=Jaliscoguey13;13461846]I thought he made himself look vulnerable when he got knocked out by a blown-up, old, cruiserweight.[/QUOTE] that's how he's getting the Haye fight (but soz, he didn't get knocked out, SC did)
