The controversy continues with David Haye's late withdrawal from his heavyweight grudge match with Tyson Fury. The fight was scheduled for September 28th in Manchester, but Haye withdrew on Saturday after stating that he suffered a cut above his on Friday from a sparring session. The cut required six stitches and Haye posted a photo of the damage.
Whether or not the fight is going to be rescheduled is still up for debate.
Chris Farnell, a sports lawyer who represents Fury, told BBC Sport: "There are serious doubts as to whether Haye actually wanted this fight with Tyson or not.
"Haye has said his injury was caused by sparring. Well, I'm not sure how many professional boxers so close to a fight spar so heavily.
"He's sustained this huge cut on his eye. So he didn't have a headguard on? Or if he did have one on, how did he get caught with such a big punch?
"There are frustrating questions that we are forced to ask as a result of the excuses we're being given. It's a fact now - the fight has been delayed. It all seems rather convenient to us, to be honest." Tags: David Haye , Tyson Fury , Haye-Fury , Haye vs. Fury
