Haye Backs Tyson Fury: I Hope He Gets Back To Former Glory

TYSON FURY has returned to boxing after missing out on £40m, according to David Haye.

Tyson Fury faces Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday.

It will be the 29-year-old’s second fight since making his comeback after more than two and a half years out of the sport.


Haye was scheduled to fight The Gypsy King on two occasions, but neither bouts materialised after the former cruiserweight champion suffered injury woes.

And – in an exclusive chat with Starsport – the retired boxer has given his thoughts on why Fury has returned.

“He’s looking healthy, he’s looking like he wants to make a comeback, he’s making all the right noises,” he said.

“But we’ll find out just how good he’s got.

“I’ve got a sneaky suspicion he realises that he missed out.

“He probably missed out on about £30m or £40m during his little sabbatical.”

Haye went on to say that the former heavyweight king deserves to be back in the big time.

“He won’t want to be missing out on any more of those zeros because he deserves some,” he added.

“He’s a big character, everyone knows his name and he’s a very good fighter.

“I hope he can get back to his former glory.”

The 36-year-old also told this site that Fury could face former nemesis Dereck Chisora on his quest to become unified heavyweight champion.

Chisora pulled off a brilliant knockout victory against Carlos Takam last month and Haye claimed he could prove a stern test for the returning boxer.

Haye was speaking to Starsport at the surprise announcement of his move into poker.

In partnership with Grosvenor Casinos, the former boxer will spend 12 months learning the skills before attempting to win the world’s largest poker tournament outside of Las Vegas – The Goliath.

Fury is a bum. Wilder will beat him so bad that the guy won’t ever be able to walk again.
