Hennessy Hopes Haye vs. Fury Lands in December

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star
 
As everyone knows by now, David Haye announced on Saturday that was pulling out of next Saturday’s heavyweight scrap with Tyson Fury ­after ­suffering a cut over his left eye in training.The Londoner needed six stitches to the wound sustained in a sparring session.

Yet the news brought a bizarre reaction from the Fury camp with his uncle, Peter Fury, ­saying: “Tyson thinks it’s 100 percent ­manufactured. And I want to move on and look forward to the next fight.”

It is the second ­successive fight Haye has been forced out of after a hand injury scrapped his bout with Syrian Manuel Charr – ­scheduled for June 29 – in May.

Haye’s trainer and manager Adam Booth last week met ­German promoter ­Kalle ­Sauerland, whose­ heavyweight Alexander Povetkin challenges ­Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko for three of the world titles in Moscow on October 5.

If Russian Povetkin upsets the odds against WBA-WBO-IBF champion Klitschko, Haye will be offered a shot against the new champion.

But Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy insists Haye cannot walk away from rescheduling the fight later this year.

WBC king Vitali, 42, has yet to announce his future plans and could retire for a ­career in politics – but recently spoke about the ­possibility of ­fighting Haye.

If either fights ­become a reality for Haye in the next two weeks, it would KO the prospect of ­fighting Fury this year. But Hennessy believes the former WBA champion ­cannot walk away from a rescheduled fight with this 6ft 9ins ­Manchester rival.

Hennessy is uncertain ­whether unbeaten Fury, 25, will have an interim fight ­before a new date with Haye, which he hopes will be in December.

He said: “I would love to think this is a genuine excuse and David Haye has to do this fight. He has talked the talk and this is a huge domestic rivalry now. He has really done some ­talking and for that reason he can’t just walk away, he needs to back it up.

“There was the toe injury with Wladimir Klitschko and he doesn’t want to walk away from the game with this ­incident hanging over him, too. We want it to happen as soon as possible but I’m thinking it would ­probably be around mid-December.”

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;13773183]Yeah, because he fights like once every two years, so that missing sparring would certainly deem him unfit. :lol1: Haye was just too dumb. [B]He shouldn't even have sparred for the last two weeks[/B], it would have meant no difference…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13773072]Because they have shows scheduled from now until december. At the same time, [B]Haye can't spar for approx 5-6 weeks at the least, which means he'll be totally unfit for boxing[/B], before he's taken up another 4-6 weeks of sparring.…

I hope it is December but I can see this getting dragged out into next year.
