Former world cruiserweight and heavyweight champion David Haye has finally met his match in the talking department, with undefeated Tyson Fury promising to break him in half on September 28th at Manchester Arena, live on Sky Sports HD Box Office. Fury had a lot to say when the two boxers faced off at a press conference event on Thursday. And then the two fighters went head to head again, this time on Sky Sports Ringside, where Fury once again verbally lashed out in Haye's direction.
"I have this guy's [Haye] number for sure. People can say what they like about me - I'm slow, fat, ugly, can't talk, can't punch, get put over by a cruiserweight. Well I have proved everyone wrong before. He says I have not been at this level before and I agree I haven't - but this is my time now and I will be taking over after this fight. I would not be here if I did not believe in myself, I believe I can not only beat David Haye but do it in style and that is what I intend to do," Fury told the program hosts.
"He says I won't be able to hit him but I beg to differ. A lot of people hit David Haye and I am going to be one of those people. 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. I don't care about giving the gameplan away."
"I want to get into a fight with this guy. I am going to take him somewhere he has never been before. I am going to chop him up, rip his body to bits and rip his face. I am going to lean all over him. He can run but he cannot hide. He may be a sniper fighter like he said but snipers fight from a mile away. We have a 20 foot ring and that to me is in front of me. And if you are in front of me then you are in big trouble. He has not fought anyone like me: 6ft9in, 270 pounds of inside 'fightingness'. I know what it takes to fight inside."
