Tyson Fury Ready To Step In For David Haye, Fight Tony Bellew

By Elliot Foster

Tyson Fury has offered to step in and fight Tony Bellew after David Haye pulled out of their heavyweight rematch.

Haye was meant to meet Bellew in a return of their March fight on December 17 at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.

But after slipping on the stairs during training and suffering a torn left bicep, the 37-year-old Bermondsey man was forced out of the fight –– with the camps now working towards a new date for 2018.


And after the news was confirmed, former unified heavyweight world champion Fury was quick to offer his services for the fight where it to take place on May 5, one of the two proposed rescheduled dates along with March 24.

“I just heard David Haye has pulled out against Tony "The Bell***" Bellew,” Fury said in a video posted on Instagram.

“I'll be ready, willing and waiting to fight Tony Bellew on May 5 at The O2 in London.

“Like I said Tony, if you want to fight a real man, the best heavyweight in the world, the heavyweight who beat everyone else, the real heavyweight champion of the world, I'm ready and waiting.

“They call you The Bomber; I call you The Bell***.

“It'll be no contest, one uppercut, a seal-in job. If you think differently, prove me wrong.”

Haye lost to Bellew at the same venue earlier this year when he was stopped in the 11th round of the fight, having suffered an Achilles injury, which required surgery, earlier in the fight.

Wait a minute, didn't triple F (Fat [I]F[/I]uck Fury) just say last week that he wants Joshua? Now he's saying he wants pumped up LHW Tony Bellew? He must not be very confident and needs an easy tune-up.

[QUOTE=Chrismart;18226835]Coldwell ruled that out at once. “He’s too big,” the trainer said. “That’s not a fight I would entertain whatsoever. Fury is big, long and very, very clever in that ring. There’s no way that I’d be interested in that…

So Tony blows himself up to 215lbs on fight night, whereas Fury needs to lose 215lbs or risk dying from a cheeseburger-induced heart attack. This is f*cking comical.
