Tyson Fury claims he is going to be 'brutal' with David Haye. The heavyweight pair were due to fight at Manchester Arena on Saturday but Haye pulled out at the weekend after picking up a facial cut while sparring.
The contest is now set to take place at the same venue on February 8.
Fury, 24, said: “When I finally get him in the ring I am going to be brutal with him.
“We totally disbelieve the injury situation and think they’ve pulled a fast one by getting the fight postponed.
“In all honesty, I think there could have been 20 reasons why they didn’t want this fight.”
But two-time world champion Haye, 32, used Twitter to confirm the new fight date and mockingly referred to his opponent as ‘‘Dyson Furry’’.
He told fans: “Thanks to everyone for all your kind words of support. In these trying times, my spirits were low and your good vibes kept me on track.”
But unbeaten Fury is unconvinced about the injury and said: “You must remember this guy never usually spars in the fortnight before a fight to avoid injury.
“Yet here he was sparring and getting cut just a week before we were due to meet. I am the guy who can carry the torch for British boxing"
"I am a big guy who can talk and fight and do it. I am the man and when I beat Haye I think it could be his last fight.’’
