DAVID HAYE and Tyson Fury could earn a staggering £5m EACH in a megabucks bout this year.

Negotiations are progressing for a ­September 28 blockbuster between Britain’s two top heavyweights at the Manchester Arena.

Haye’s co-promoter Eddie Hearn ­confirmed that talks are taking place and said: “It’s now a case of getting both fighters to cross the line.”

At the Fury camp, his uncle and trainer Peter said: “We want Haye. If the fight does not happen, it won’t be down to Tyson.”

The fight would be a 22,000 sell-out with pay-per-view takings likely to be sky-high in what will be an eagerly anticipated contest.

Hearn said: “It is a fight that will have enormous interest and it could generate one of the biggest pay-per-view figures of all time.”

Hearn’s Matchroom organization has a four-fight deal with former WBA champ Haye, who has not fought since July last year.

The 32-year-old stopped Dereck Chisora in five rounds and now wants to revive a career which he still believes can see him become a world champion again.

Haye pulled out of a fight with German Manuel Charr, scheduled for Manchester this month, because of a hand injury.

Fury had earlier paved the way for a ­contest with Haye by withdrawing from his summer fight against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, which could have earned him a mandatory shot at IBF champ Wladimir Klitschko.

Hearn said: “I believe both fighters want the contest to take place because every fighter believes they can beat ­another fighter.

“We are now at a stage where this is close to happening. It’s a brilliant fight between a former world champion and an exciting up-and-coming prospect in Tyson Fury.

“And I have to say that Tyson is a true character in a sport where we don’t have enough characters any more.

“He is a true throwback who is entertaining in everything he does. With him and David around, the build-up to the fight could be as good as the fight itself!

“The build-up could make it one of the most anticipated fights of all time. The fight is that big that it just has to happen.

“If this fight is going to happen, it will be sorted out by the end of this month, that’s for sure.

“I am pretty sure they both want the fight. The deal isn’t done yet – but it is close.”

Fury is definitely keen,with the 24-year-old saying: “Bring it on. David Haye is by far the best heavyweight in Britain.

“Haye is the fight I really want and I know the public want it. As far as I am concerned, we should get it on.”

I can't wait until this fight gets made. Pure entertainment. Hopefully the match itself will be entertaining as well. :banana:

It's an ideal fight for Haye. Fury isn't very good, but has an undefeated record, a lot of unsubstantiated hype behind him, and a British following. There's no doubt about the result, though - Haye will win easily after circling around him like a timid matador for the first three rounds.

[QUOTE=NEETzsche]it's an okay fight but not ppv worthy. ppv should be reserved for the best of the best.[/QUOTE] Wrong. PPV is reserved for whoever is going to sell PPV's. Haye vs Fury will sell.
