Wilder: Haye Would Have Beat Fury, I'd Face Chisora

By Edward Chaykovsky

The heavyweight knockout king, Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs), says David Haye should have went forward with his planned fight against Tyson Fury. The bout was scheduled twice, and Haye withdrew both times with injuries.  Haye announced his retirement after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier this year, but then left the door open for a potential ring return in the future.

"I believe David would have beaten Tyson because he was in really good shape," Wilder told Metro Sport.

But Wilder also advised Haye to stay retired instead of coming back.

"David isn’t a true heavyweight as he came up through the cruiserweight ranks and his body must have taken some punishment after going up against bigger guys. He should listen to his body and stay in retirement. If he did come back he may also have trouble winning back some of his fans who felt pulling out of those fights with Fury left a disgusting taste," Wilder said.

Wilder, who previously traveled to the UK to knock Audley Harrison out in one round, would love the opportunity to return to British soil for a fight with either Fury or Dereck Chisora.

"I would be more than happy to face either Fury or Dereck Chisora on their own patch, it wouldn’t worry me because I know I can beat them. I love fighting in England," Wilder said.

This Saturday night in Bayamon, Puerto Rico - Wilder will face Malik Scott as part of a Showtime televised card.

Wilder should just shut up, he has done absolutely nothing worth mentioning up until this point. Deontay 'All talk' Wilder. As I recall the fight was made with Chisora, he supposedly had to pull out because of some legal problem…
