News that David Haye, 26-2 (24), had picked up a cut in sparring last night and was forced to pull out of next Saturday's fight against domestic rival Tyson Fury, 21-0 (15), as result of the injury has set the cat amongst the pigeons here in the U.K. It is the announcement that launched a thousand quips and online conspiracy theories.

Adam Booth, the trainer of Haye, has told BoxingScene that, contrary to Peter Fury's comments earlier today, they are working hard on rescheduling the big fight, which was due to take place at Manchester's Phones 4U Arena and would have been shown live on Sky Sports Box Office PPV.A furious Peter Fury told BoxingScene earlier they are moving on, with Tyson being positioned for an October return.

"We are working on rescheduling the date and venue with Sky as soon as possible," said Booth when speaking to BoxingScene. Although he could not go into further details, Booth's discussions with Sky are a heartening sign that the fight might still be rescued, but it may take all of Booth's considerable negotiating ability to bring the Furys back to the table.

Still, this fight's genesis was very prolonged and protracted yet the parties managed to thrash out a deal earlier in the year. Indeed, Booth and Peter Fury brought it all together with a face-to-face crisis meeting, so maybe there is still hope that the all-British heavyweight tussle, which was building quite nicely, will still go ahead.

fury v chisora rematch?

comment by joe strong, on 09-21-2013
too much money for fury not to reschedule. if he goes another direction & loses, he may never get this kind of money again. I think he gets 5 million pounds(about 7.5 million US) for this fight plus whatever else...

Of course it will still go ahead we need to know who the best british heavyweight is. But cos Fury is in shape, can he fight one of Davids sparring partners in the meantime, and then try meet haye on the rescheduled date? I suppose that isn't allowed as Fury might lose to the sparring partner.

[QUOTE=LacedUp]Yeah, I don't think there's any doubt Fury wanted the fight badly. He put himself through misery for the last 8 weeks, paid a small fortune for the camp and wasted his own, his uncles, his cousins and 5 sparring partners time for nothing. And he's somehow being blamed our called ...

[QUOTE=yoz]Just heard that Haye's out until at least December, so the fight would likely be put back to Jan/Feb.[/QUOTE] Where did you hear that?
