Tyson Fury: After David Haye, I Want Cain Velasquez

By Edward Chaykovsky

British heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is hoping a victory over former champion David Haye will lead to a crossover fight with UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Fury faces Haye on September 28th at the Manchester Arena. He says a fight with Velasquez will be even bigger than his match with Haye and means more to him than going after one of the Klitschko brothers.

“After I beat Haye I want to fight Cain Velasquez,” said Fury to the Manchester Evening News. “100 percent. Not Klitschko straight away because he’s going to faff around. He’s not going to fight. I want someone who will fight. Velasquez will fight. I’m going to call him out after I beat David Haye. It’s going to be on HBO live in America so the whole of the country is going to hear it. I want to fight him in a cage. It’s no joke, I will fight Velasquez after I beat Haye. If [UFC President] Dana White can put up the money, it’ll happen. He’s already put an offer forward of £1.5m."

Haye likely beats him and Cain would beat Fury too.

I love Fury, but I won't watch it. I won't support that mockery of a sport, MMA.
