Tyson Fury Bellieves David Haye Fight is "99% Done"

Tyson Fury claims a heavyweight showdown with David Haye is "99 percent done", with negotiations between the two fighters' promoters set to take place next week.

Fury met Haye's trainer and manager Adam Booth at ringside during James Degale's win over Stjepan Bozic in Kent last night, and expressed his confidence the fight will take place.

Fury said: "I was minding my own business and I bumped into Adam Booth, so we got him on camera and we asked him, 'why is the David Haye fight not being done?'

"He said, 'Do you want the fight?' and I said, 'two million percent.'

"He said, 'I can't see why this fight cannot be done.' So there it is from the horse's mouth. Adam Booth says he wants the fight. It is 99 percent [done]."

Fury recently pulled out of a fight with unbeaten Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, which was set to earn the winner a shot at current IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko.

And despite Haye's continued claims he would only return to the ring to face one of the Klitschko brothers, his head has clearly been turned by the enormous box office potential of a fight with Fury.

Haye beat Dereck Chisora at Upton Park last July, but was subsequently forced to postpone a comeback bout against Germany's Manuel Charr due to a hand injury.

Fury isn't impressed by Cruiserweights, but one just put him on his backside. Holyfield was a cruiserweight as well, as is David haye now. Many of them aren't great, but you get a decent one every once in a while,…

Fury's fat ass already got dropped by someone 40 pounds lighter than him. What an embarrassment to get hurt by a guy who JUST moved from cruiserweight. Haye is an established heavyweight, when he dropped fury's fat ass, he will…
