Haye vs. Fury: Tyson Signs, Presser is Set For Thursday

By Terence Dooley & Jake Donovan

Promoters Eddie Hearn and Mick Hennessey has confirmed that Tyson Fury has signed on the dotted line for a showdown with former WBA heavyweight titlist David Haye on September 28 at Manchester's MEN Arena venue.  Haye signed his contract yesterday, prompting Peter Fury, Fury's trainer, to tell BoxingScene that they were close to inking their side of the pact, and Team Fury have been as good as their word.

Fury, 21-0 (15), will hope to keep his winning run going, but London's Haye, 26-2 (24) is by far the Mancunian's stiffest test to date.  The 32-year-old former champion was in excellent form when beating Dereck Chisora by fifth-round TKO at Upton Park last July; Fury, 25, was floored by Steve Cuningham in their April encounter at New York's Madison Square Garden Theater venue yet got up to register a seventh-round KO win.

This meeting is bound to excite and the pre-fight press conferences may require a perspex screen a la Riddick Bowe versus Jorge Luis Gonzalez to seperate the two, as they have waged a war of words on Twitter in recent weeks and are both known for their colourful pre-fight antics.

An official press conference, where both fighters will be present, is scheduled for this Thursday in London.

Trash talk leading up to the fight should be epic.

Haye won't be stopping Fury. Fury will eat his best shots and shake them off.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;13546866]I was at the fight too. I picked Haye to win by stoppage. It is absolutely an overstatement to say Haye "battered" him and he couldn't take Haye's shots. Why did he keep coming forward for 5 rounds…
