The biggest fight of the year is officially ON! Heavyweight juggernauts David 'The Hayemaker' Haye and Tyson Fury will battle it out for bragging rights and a whole lot more on Saturday, September 28 at the Manchester Arena. Their coming together marks not only the most important heavyweight encounter of 2013, but also the biggest fight staged in Britain for many, many years. And, given the world-ranked pair's outspoken nature and ability to score eye-catching knockouts, this heavyweight showdown is likely to live long in the memory.
The 32-year-old Haye is a hard-hitting former WBA heavyweight champion of the world, as well as the former WBC, WBA and WBO cruiserweight titleholder. The Londoner has finished 24 of his 26 professional victories via crushing knockout and suffered defeat only twice. Manchester's Fury, meanwhile, boasts a perfect professional record and has won all 21 of his pro bouts to date, ending 15 of them within the scheduled distance. The 25-year-old is a former British, Commonwealth and Irish heavyweight champion and a born entertainer - inside and outside the ring.
