Haye: Beating Fury May Not Be Enough To Get Shot

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE admits that even if he chops down gypsy giant Tyson Fury he could still be left frozen out of the world title scene.

The British rivals – both ranked in the top ten by three of the four world governing bodies – go toe-to-toe at Manchester Arena on September 28.

Haye, 32, is even the WBA’s top contender for Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko after Russian Alexander Povetkin, who the champion faces in a £15million clash on October 5.

Wladimir, 37, holds four of the five world titles while his brother Vitali is the WBC champion.

But Londoner Haye is not holding his breath over fighting either brother.

Vitali, 42, is more interested in his political career than boxing and Haye, who was easily outpointed by Wladimir two years ago, reckons his only chance of a rematch would come if he were made mandatory challenger.

He said: “I don’t think this fight has any bearing on whether Vitali or Wladimir want to fight me. All it will reconfirm is that I’m a big pay-per-view draw, and it means a lot of money to them.

“If I get in the mandatory position it helps. As long as I am fighting ranked opponents the governing bodies will recognise that.”

Fury, 25, will dwarf Haye by six inches and outweigh him by three stones, but the former WBA world heavyweight champion has shown he is capable of a giant-killing before.

Haye captured the WBA belt in 2009 when he used hit-and-run tactics to outclass and out-point 7ft 2in Russian giant Nikolai Valuev.

But Haye does not expect Fury – unbeaten in 21 fights – to be as difficult to beat as Valuev.

He said: “Fury’s a lot smaller than Valuev and Valuev had some form, 50-odd fights, so he’s a different calibre to this guy.”

[QUOTE=Cupo303;13683661][SIZE="3"]The difference is, Charr doesn't have an ego and Haye does. Haye thinks that he is the Floyd Mayweather of the Heavyweight Division. And rightfully so, Vitali and his brother are also tough at the negotiating table. Hell, if you're…

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;13683901]Wlad didn't look particularly good in that fight. Haye was just worse.[/QUOTE] Wlad looked pretty good against a quick challenger, down the stretch he looked pretty comfortable actually, all the flopping to the ground just made it look like Wlad…

[QUOTE=soul_survivor;13682133]i agree, if Haye dispatches of Fury in impressive fashion then he should get a straight shot at either bro and in all honesty, Haye is the best and most dangerous opponent available to either klit and the way wlad…

Giant killing? Which fight are they talking about? Can't be the Valuev fight, when Haye spent 12 rounds just running away. The only other one is Vlad, who humiliated him and made him look second rate. If Fury stays disciplined…

I think Haye shud fight Pulev and take the rug from under Wlads feet, forcing a fight Hayes objective shud be to beat any potential candidates
