P. Fury: Haye Has a History of This, We Are Moving On!

By Terence Dooley

Peter Fury has told BoxingScene that Tyson Fury, 21-0 (15), plans to move on with his career without David Haye, 26-2 (24), after the Londoner was forced to withdraw from next Saturday's clash at Manchester's Phones 4U Arena due to a cut eye.  Haye picked up the injury while sparring Croatia's Filip Hrgović and it forced the postponement of the fight that everyone has been talking about.

Fury's uncle and trainer has been left bitterly disappointed, Manchester's heavyweight contender was closing in on an IBF title eliminator with Kubrat Pulev prior to signing on to fight Haye and is now likely to pursue other options - a fight against one of the Klitschkos is now his main target.

"We're very disappointed," said Peter Fury when speaking to BoxingScene about the withdrawal.  "He's got a history of pulling out, I think his camp wasn't going very good and they knew Tyson would do a number on him.  Now we've got to move on.  I want to get Tyson out in October, then we'll try to get one of these Klitschkos."

As for the possibility of rearranging the Haye date, Fury stated that he did not believe the Haye team want to meet at a later date.  "I tell you now, I spoke to Adam [Booth] and they're not keen to get this fight on.  Tyson is devastated.  It's sad, really, and it's very sad for boxing.  It is a disappointment, but we'll move on."

Haye posted a photo of his gashed left eyebrow online earlier today and insists that he is desperate to secure a new date.  Fury, though, is adamant that the fight is dead in the water.  It's a fight that took a lot of time and negotiating to make, but all it took was a split second and some split skin to leave the encounter dangling by a thread.

[QUOTE=JAB5239;13773819][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="Navy"]I just don't see a TT fight bringing enough money to take a chance on losing the Haye fight. I could be wrong and underestimating England's desire to see him fight and beat though. With the fight scrapped there plenty…

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;13773774]It would be a calculated risk and maybe quite lucrative. Tony Thompson is known in England for his two big wins against Price and I think British fans would get behind their home fighter to 'avenge' those loses. Also, I…

[QUOTE=JAB5239;13773755][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="Navy"]It is to bad the whole card has been scrapped. If it wasn't though I don't think a Fury-Thompson fight would have happened or been smart. To much risk to little money before the Haye money train rolls in.[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] It…
