Undefeated heavyweight Tyson Fury has lifted the lid on negotiations for his imminent deal with David Haye and exclusively told WBN that he is willing to do anything to get the former world champion in the ring.
Outspoken words in the past of wanting an 80/20 split were only jokes by the 21-0 bruiser that were taken literally, although in reality, Tyson explained that is the one bending over backwards whilst taking a torrent of abuse from frustrated fans and even ex-wiorld champions.
“The talks went okay, but I just gave the bitch everything he wants to get him in the ring,” Fury told World Boxing News.
“He can have the ring walk, the gloves, 50/50, whatever as I just want to get this fight on for the fans.
“Some of the comments lately, like those from Lennox Lewis have made me think of not signing because I don’t want to give Haye the big day he wants.
“Maybe I am shitting myself at the thought of fighting him eh, because he is such a big puncher and I have got such a weak chin,” he joked in direct reference to Lewis’ comments in the British media lately.
Whatever happens now though it seems that a happy medium has been found on both sides and the clash everybody wants has moved a significant step closer to being made for the autumn in Manchester.
A certain date is not set officially, but it is thought to be September 28 in what will be a definite sell-out and the biggest pay-per-view bonanza in the UK since Haye fought Wladimir Klitschko in 2011.
