Hatton Backs Haye To Win, Hopes Fury Gets The Upset

Ricky Hatton believes David Haye will beat Tyson Fury later this month - but he would love to see the latter emerge triumphant and go on to become Manchester's next world champion.

Ex-WBA heavyweight champion Haye, 32, faces undefeated 25-year-old Fury on September 28 at Manchester Arena.

Fury, who was born in Wythenshawe, has expressed his belief that he is good enough to see off not only Londoner Haye but also Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, the Ukrainian brothers currently holding all of the heavyweight world titles between them.

And retired former two-weight world champion Hatton, while admitting Fury may well find Haye too tough to handle, has every hope his fellow Mancunian can achieve major global success.

Asked how he expected the fight to pan out, Hatton said.

"My heart rules my head really.

"Tyson is a Manchester lad and you would love to have a heavyweight champion from Manchester.

"But David Haye hits so, so hard and Tyson has been down. My heart says Tyson but my head says Haye.

"Although Tyson has been put down a few times, he gets up and he is big - the last time David Haye fought someone the size of Tyson Fury it was Wladimir Klitschko (when Haye lost his WBA title in 2011) and he was scared to death of him.

"So you never know - maybe Tyson's frame and size might work for him."

Don't worry Ricky, Fury is going to get upset alright, when Haye knocks him on his azz.
