Fury: I Would Have Fought Haye With Two Broken Hands

David Haye announced on Saturday morning that a cut sustained over his left eyebrow on Friday night which required six stitches forced him to postpone the contest against Fury a week before they were due to meet in the ring. They were set to fight this coming Saturday night in Manchester. Despite posting a picture of his injury on social networking sites, Haye's pull-out has angered Tyson, who lashed out at his heavyweight rival.

"There only would have been one winner and that was me. An army couldn't have stopped me on Saturday night because I'd prepared mentally, physically, everything," said Fury.

"I couldn't have done any more in training. I'm in the shape of my life, I just couldn't wait to show everyone what I was going to do and had up my sleeve. There's no excuses ever out of me. You never hear me say excuses. If I had two broken hands I would still go in there and fight on Saturday night."

The Manchester fighter added on Sky Sports 1: "I've been training so hard, so much for these big opportunities and every time I get a big opportunity something goes wrong. Why can I not get my time to shine? Give me a reason!"

The clash between Haye and Fury had promised to be one of the most eagerly-awaited domestic contests in years, with tickets selling out within hours of going on sale last month.

Haye had been hoping to use the fight to re-establish his world-class credentials after his disappointing points defeat to Klitschko in July 2011.

Meanwhile victory for Fury would have lifted him further into contention on the back of a career-best seventh round stoppage of American veteran Steve Cunningham in April.

It's okay, I'll save this and bump it when he gets injured in sparring and postpones a fight lol

No doubt people are disappointed.. I figured this one was going to be a barn burner however long it lasted ( 4th round or so in my estimation) with both guys landing bombs and both guys hitting the ground.. Haye…
