Fury hopes to snag former world champions Haye and Adamek

Phil Jay 24/07/2012

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is set to return to the ring in November and hopes to persuade former WBA champion David Haye to divert his attention from Vitali Klitschko and face him in his 20th pro outing.

The 24 year-old, who defeated Haye’s most recent foe Dereck Chisora in 2011, has stopped 14 of his victims so far and dropped American Vinny Maddalone last time out to continue his winning streak in the top division.

Haye, 31, crushed ‘Del Boy’ with a spectacular left hook at West Ham’s Upton Park Stadium earlier this month and with Fury on the lookout for a big name scalp, the ‘Hayemaker’ and former world title challenger Tomasz Adamek are high on his list.

“We are looking to return in November,” Peter Fury, Tyson’s trainer and uncle told World Boxing News.

“We have a few American fighters in mind, but we are hoping to get David Haye or Tomasz Adamek to take the fight. If they don’t want it, then there are other name fighters who we will look at.

“So much for Tyson avoiding David Price because he is too good, when he is looking to fight the likes of Haye,” he added.

6ft 9ins Fury has been mentioned as a challenger to the belt hoarding Klitschko brothers in his next few fights and mixing it with some of the top ten heavyweights in the world will go some way to prepare him for his first world title attempt, possibly next year.
