Tyson Fury Speaks On Rescheduled Date For Haye Clash

By Jake Donovan

There wasn’t a happier man on the planet than Tyson Fury when the announcement was made of his fight with David Haye receiving a set rescheduled date.

The pair of British heavyweights were set to collide this weekend, with HBO to televise in the United States, but was postponed when Haye suffered a cut over his left eye during training camp. The bout will now take place next February at Phones 4u Arena in Manchester. 

There’s no guarantee of stateside coverage, but for now Fury remains content with the opportunity to put his domestic rival in place. 

"I'm so glad to have this fight rescheduled - in my opinion, he's a classless prima donna, a diva, a no good wannabe Bollywood actor and I can't wait to put him in his place," claims Fury (21-0, 15KO), who hasn’t fought since his knockout win over Steve Cunningham this past April. "There's lots of honest and hard working people in this world and I believe I'm going to punish and poleaxe this money grabbing cry baby for all of them - he's getting knocked spark out!”
 
The bout has been months in the making, with the pair of trash talkers trading words online, through publicists and in person on the rare occasions they’ve met face-to-face. Neither fighter has ever been shy about proclaiming themselves to be the greatest of all time. 

The difference, as far as Fury sees it, is that he’s made an honest effort to back up his boisterous claims. Haye manages to keep his name in headlines, but hasn’t been able to make his way to a ring since July ’12, with injuries and an assortment of excuses leaving several fights on the table. 
 
"I'm tired of him, he said he was going to knock Klitschko out and did nothing! Now he's giving me the same talk - why do people believe him? He can dish it out but can't take it. Mr Toemaker, your excuses are boring - you say you're going to 'expose me' but the difference, Mr Excusemaker, is that every time I say I'm going to go out and do something, I go out and do it.

“That's exactly what I was going to do this Saturday and 100 percent going to do on February 8th - nothing has changed, I'm still going to smash your face in, no excuses."

Maybe Fury is not as stupid as we thought. Looks like his mind games with Haye may work. You have to admit, Haye isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer either. BUT:,The funniest guy in the world is Chisora. He…

[QUOTE=boxingfocus;13782027]That fight needed building up, it was a potential heavyweight super fight. No point those 2 fighting so early in their careers. And Price got exposed. You can think Fury ducked that, but until he's at the top level of…
