Haye Confident Fury Will Get Drilled After First Hard Shot

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of the Daily Star

DAVID HAYE has branded Tyson Fury a fool for dismissing him as an arrogant, blown-up cruiserweight.

Haye feels Fury won't be able to handle his punching and power

The pair meet in a massive domestic heavyweight dust-up at the Manchester Arena on September 28.

And the unbeaten 6ft 9in Fury, 25, is convinced that the much smaller and lighter Haye will be no match for him, saying: “Believe me, he will have no answer to my power and my punching.”

Fury compared Haye to his latest victim Steve Cunningham, a former IBF world cruiserweight champion who he defeated in seven rounds last December.

But 32-year-old Haye hit back, saying: “Fury seems to think just because two people are of a similar size that they are the same type of fighter, but he’s way wrong there. I’ve been a heavyweight for many years now, while Cunningham had just dipped his toe into the heavyweight division.”

Haye is a former undisputed world cruiserweight champion and is convinced Fury’s comments are a sign of his lack of confidence.

He added: “Fury needs confidence. He needs to make those comparisons. It’s false confidence, but it is confidence all the same.

“The thing about Tyson Fury is that he is a bit of a fool, so it’s no real surprise that he’ll probably make those comparisons.

“Unlike Cunningham, if I hit Tyson he’s not only going down, he’s going down for the count. There is only one way this fight is going to go.”

Fury, for a guy his size is a good inside fighter. Haye, on the other hand is a better outside fighter. The only way I can see Tyson winning if he get on the inside to maul David and make…

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;13671617]It's a cherry pick because Haye was due to fight the almighty Charr himself, then pulled ouy with a fake hand injury, because the Fury CASH fight could be made. I don't blame him, don't get me wrong. But it's…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13672123]Did I say undisputed? Or did I say that he was universally recognized as the champ? And who cares about how many fights he had or how many rounds he fought as champion? He mentioned weight problems all the way…

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;13672092]By legit do you mean the whole four month period that he was CW champion? And the incredible 2 rounds he fought as the champ? Wow, what a career at CW. And it is simple nothing can be undisputed…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13672047]You are both nitpicking here. Haye was universally recognized as THE cw champion. There's no questioning that. Both by the ring, boxrec and the bodies. Technically, Cunningham held a paper belt, as Haye did at heavy.. But his CW career…
