TYSON FURY has declared he will NEVER fight David Haye even if there were a record purse in the offing.
Haye frustrated Fury last year by pulling out of two scheduled fights through injury.
Fury has moved a step closer to a world title showdown with Wladimir Klitschko, though he will need to get the better of Dereck Chisora first on July 26 in their title eliminator in Manchester.
Although Fury has set his sights on Klitschko, he hasn't forgotten what Haye did and insists he has no respect for him.
"I have zero respect for him. Whatever he has achieved, it has been flushed down the loo," Fury said.
"When you are a sh*thouse, you are a sh*thouse, forget it.
"I will never fight him because he is an idiot. I can't take him seriously. Even if they offered me £10m, I would say 'go f*** your mother', because I know he is a sh*thouse and he won't fight.
"His ass was flapping in his trousers. I always said he would pull out. I had no faith in him fighting me. I knew in the back of my mind it wasn't happening."
Haye goaded Klitschko in the build-up to their world title showdown three years ago by wearing a t-shirt which depicted how he would decapitate the Ukrainian.
But Fury has vowed he would not resort to Haye's tactics should he get the chance to pit his wits against Klitschko.
He added: "No I don't believe gentlemen do stuff like that. David's nothing more than a common person.
"He showed in his actions he is a thug and it doesn't matter how regal he tries to be, in my opinion he is just a yob."
