Hennessy, Team Fury Working With Sky on New Date

London - Hennessy Sports would like to reassure fans following the extremely disappointing news regarding the British super-fight between Tyson Fury and David Haye, set for September 28th at the Phones 4 U Arena Manchester, as we endeavour to do all we can to resolve this situation and reschedule a new date as quickly as possible.

We would like to officially apologize to all the boxing fans who have supported us, bought tickets, booked time off from work and booked hotels prior to this news and thank you for your patience as we look to announce a new date. 

"We only found out about this situation around midday on Saturday morning, only about half an hour before Hayemaker sent out their official release announcing it," Mick Hennessy said.

"Since then we have been working around the clock with Team Fury, Hayemaker and Sky in an attempt to resolve the situation and reschedule a new date as quickly as possible.

"We have looked into a number of possibilities and have been left very frustrated as due to these circumstances beyond our control, there is nothing that can be done to salvage the 28th, but this is a super-fight that the fans deserve to see and Tyson is eager to deliver for them.

"To be fair to Tyson as well, he has done everything in his power to keep this date alive for the fans, even agreeing to fight Deontay Wilder on the 28th (if Team Wilder agreed), but this fight at short notice was obviously not considered to be box office.

“For the fans that want refunds on their tickets rather than wait for a rescheduled date, please contact the point of purchase for a refund.

"We are very disapointed and can imagine how you are all feeling about this as fans and hopefully we will be able to announce further information as soon as possible."

Will be interesting to see if this fight ever does materialise now. Certainly from David Haye's side anyway. I have my doubts about Wilder, but respect to him for being willing to have a fight at short notice. The only…

With hindsight being 20/20, it probably would have been a better idea, had he decided to fight Pulev for the IBF title elimination bout instead.
