Haye Feels Tyson Fury's Style Could Create Problems For Wilder

TYSON FURY’s awkward style of fighting could see him overcome WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder in the ring.

That’s according for former world champion David Haye.

Tyson Fury announced a deal was close with the American fighter yesterday.

The 29-year-old returned to boxing with a walk over of Sefer Seferi last month.

As the “Gypsy King” prepares to take on Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park on August 18, he already has one eye on his next opponent.

And retired British heavyweight Haye told Jim White on talkSPORT it is more evenly matched than some suggest.

“The one thing we do know is that boxers, after having long breaks even in their prime, can come back but are never quite as good as they once were,” Haye said.

“I’m hoping that’s not the case for Tyson Fury. If he was a clean eater and wasn’t doing the other things, I could give him a shot.

“But because he may have been taking these things, he’s not looked after his body how he should have done.

“I believe that really lessens his chances in that top three.

“But on his day it would have been a toss-up between all of them [Fury, Wilder and IBF, IBO, WBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua].

“I can see how Joshua would knock out Wilder and Fury but I could also see how Fury’s awkwardness could out-box Joshua.

“Fury’s boxing ability could mess up Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

“And I can also see Deontay sparking both of them, so I can make arguments why all three could beat the other two.”

And fans were quick to show their support for Fury.

Fury will be back in the ring on August 18 when he takes on Francesco Pianeta.

[QUOTE=JWHardin;18984246]I think Wilder attacking Fury's body will be the key. Not sure if he'll do that though. Wlad didn't either.[/QUOTE] I don't believe Wilder has enough technique to land consistently on Fury's body. You need skill to expose the body…

[QUOTE=Punisha;18985187]It is interesting, I don't think Fury can actually hurt Wilder so it'll be a points game of Fury outboxing Wilder and surviving Wilder's right hand.[/QUOTE] Fury does not need to hurt Wilder. What Fury can do is to outbox…

[QUOTE=Lemonhead_Jeff;18984598]I agree, but it's probably the right fight to take. It shows Wilder is serious, and it doesn't look great for Hearn who portrayed Team Wilder as the ones being difficult to negotiate with. Up until now, British posters on…

Wilder is so unorthodox that his overhand punches should find a way to hit Fury
