Haye: Price Knocks Fury Out, Velasquez Beats Him Too!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former world champion David Haye is not exactly a fan of Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs). Haye sides David Price (15-0, 13KOs) to defeat Fury - if the two undefeated Brits every step in the ring. Based on what he knows, and what he sees, Haye considers Price to be a far more developed boxer.

“I think David Price is the  No 1, ahead of Tyson Fury. The way he handled him comfortably in the amateurs makes me think that and the way Price is dispatching opponents and not getting involved in sloppy 12 rounders," Haye told the Manchester Evening News.

“The fact that Fury relinquished his titles rather than fight Price shows what the pecking order is. If Price and Fury fought each other you would find out how good they are. I think Price stops him. That’s my opinion.I’ve spent more time with Price, sparred him and seen him improve. I don’t know too much about Tyson."

A few weeks ago, Fury made worldwide headlines when he attacked UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez on the social networks. Fury challenged Velasquez to a fight in the cage or the ring. If they meet in the cage, Haye would bet the house on Velasquez to win.

“Maybe he’s better at mixed martial arts than boxing, I don’t know,” he said. “But if I was a betting man, I’d bet everything I have that he’d lose. I was a world champion. Not only champion but WBC, WBA, WBO and Ring cruiserweight champion. That’s when I called people out. I knocked out all of my opponents and believed I had the right to call people out. I was world champion."

“Tyson Fury is the Irish champion – if he feels he can call out world champions and the UFC champion then good luck, if that’s how he wants to do it.He says he wants to beat the UFC champion – everyone knows it won’t happen and he couldn’t do it, but it’s quite funny. He comes across as a quite an intelligent guy when you hear him. He’s getting headlines. Whenever people ask me about Tyson Fury it’s always about something he’s said – not that he’s knocked this guy out. It’s what he says outside the ring."

[QUOTE=Cuban Linx;12966333]Chisora and Johnson are better than the guys that Price has been fighting. When that fight goes down, Fury is going to box circles over one-dimensional power puncher Price. Price is good, he has power, but too one-dimensional has…
