Fury: I Deserve More Money Than 'Has-Been' David Haye

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15KOs) admits that he wants, and deserves, more money in a financial split with former two division champion David Haye (26-2, 24KOs). Discussions to make the fight continue. Haye offered Fury a 50-50 split, but Fury countered with an 80-20 demand. Fury says there is room to negotiate the split, but he refuses to sign off on any deal where Haye receives an equal share or more money than him. If Haye does not agree to Fury's demands by the end of this month, then Fury will move on.

"I did say that [I want an 80-20 split], because Haye is a has-been and I'm what's in fashion at the moment. What's in fashion needs the lion's share of things more than a has-been. We got a deadline at the end of month and either he signs the contract or Team Fury moves on. But there is nobody that I would like to beat up more than David Haye. There is room for negotiation there, and if the fight is going to happen I'm sure we can come to some sort of an agreement," Fury said to Sky Sports News.

"In this fight with David Haye, I genuinely don't like the fella. I think he's arrogant, I think he thinks he's everything. But really he's just a pumped up cruiserweight who hasn't fought anybody."

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;13512650]That's not exactly what I said. But if you seriously think after the Audley farce, that he could come out and say "I'm fighting Ruslan Chagaev next, 15 quid please!" and get away with it, you're fuking deluded.…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13512622] If you think Haye's popularity wasn't enough to get him on PPV that's on you, but you know you're not correct. [/QUOTE] That's not exactly what I said. But if you seriously think after the Audley farce, that he…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13512622]It doesn't matter whether it's a paper belt or not. He was built as Britains heavyweight champ and you know that. It worked fine selling the "paper champ" vs Ruiz didn't it? And people got a great fight and a…
