Trainer Fury warms to Pulev in the UK, Haye and Klitschko route for Tyson

Phil Jay 01/05/2013

Tyson Fury trainer Peter Fury has confirmed to WBN that a fight with David Haye is possible for his unbeaten nephew, although Kubrat Pulev remains the first target as stipulated by promoter Mick Hennessy recently.

21-0 Fury is constantly linked to a fight with Haye after the former WBA champion’s coach Adam Booth announced his intention to pursue the clash, although Peter did also state that there are other considerations on the table for the 24 year-old..

“A fight between Tyson and David Haye is possible and we do like the idea of it, but we have few other options open to us as well which we are looking at right now,” Fury told World Boxing News.

“The Pulev fight is one we are looking at and if that happens, then we are hoping to stage it in the UK and afterwards can see whether Haye will then happen.”

Haye, 32, is to continue his march towards another world title against Manuel Charr on June 29 in Manchester – with Fury likely to return in July or August after his victory over Steve Cunningham in April.

That would mean any potential Fury v Haye domestic battle would be more likely to happen around November or December, if agreed – with the victor then in line to be mandatory challenger for a world title in 2014.
