Peter Fury: TV not a problem for Fury v Haye, but it’s by no means a done deal

Phil Jay 11/06/2013

Tyson Fury trainer Peter Fury has exclusively told WBN that talks are still ongoing with former world heavyweight champion David Haye over a possible UK super-fight later in the year.

With rumours rife that an agreement over TV coverage could be a problem in sealing the fight, Fury was quick to stifle those today – although he did state that reports the fight was close to being finalized are premature.

“We’re hopeful, but Haye is right in saying theirs no agreement in place as there is not,” Fury told World Boxing News.

“Both teams are talking and amicably, but until this fight is signed it’s not on.”

All concerned in making the high-profile match-up possible were spotted in the same room on Saturday night at Glow, Bluewater for the Mick Hennessy promotion and Fury says that relatively nothing has changed since then.

“The question of do we all want this fight is yes,” confirmed Fury. “On our side 100% we do like was said at the weekend.

“Adam booth is also trying hard to make the fight happen, but as I say it’s by no means a done deal in my opinion yet.

“In regards to the TV, it will not a problem as if we do deal – we will jointly take the best solution between both camps,” he added.

Haye, 32, was due to meet ex-world title challenger Manuel Charr this summer in a first fight since his knockout win over Dereck Chisora at Upton Park last July, but was forced to pull out with a hand injury.

Charr is scheduled to fight this weekend against journeyman Evgeny Orlov, but looks set to miss out on his coveted clash with Haye if the fight all the fans are clambering for can come to fruition in the next few weeks.
