Tyson Fury has told WBN that he remains locked in talks with potential opponent David Haye, but has vowed to proved all the doubters wrong if the fight finally comes to fruition for the autumn.
The 24-year-old is on the cusp of a world title shot after racking up 21 straight victories. Fury is being backed in some quarters, most recently by ex-opponent Martin Rogan, to be stopped by big-punching Haye early.
Fury has laughed off these suggestions when speaking to WBN earlier today.
“After what ‘Little Rogie’ said, I am taking on all bets if the Haye fight happens,” Fury told World Boxing News.
“Talks are still ongoing with Haye to get the fight done. But we want it. We are ready!”
Haye, 32, has been rather muted by his standards regarding a possible clash with Fury.
With no movement regarding negotiations between the pair, many fans are venting their frustration at the speed of the possible deal.
Tyson’s trainer and uncle Peter told WBN exclusively last week that the date of September 28 at Manchester Arena is currently the favored date and venue for the contest.
However, nothing is yet signed between the two for what stands to be a multi-million-pound event.
