Tyson Fury and his team have exclusively told WBN that a possible multi-million pound heavyweight clash in Manchester this September hangs in the balance after weeks of back and forth negotiations.
The fight was said to have been 99% on last month after Fury made a statement confirming the bout with Haye, although nothing has since materialized between both camps and there is a real fear that the encounter won’t happen.
Trainer Peter Fury has confirmed that the stalling of talks will end this week and even moved to state the fact that Haye could have just hours to agree the deal – which he emphasises is how the whole Fury camp feel at this point.
“We have already agreement in place with David Haye and today is their last day to honour it,” Fury told World Boxing News.
“We have all agreed, including Tyson, that with them already taking five weeks to sign it that enough is enough.
“We want this fight to happen and all Haye has to do is sign the contract we have already agreed to, so he needs to get on and sign it.”
Haye, 32, has been ominously silent by his standards regarding a fight with Fury as the former world champion plots another route to regaining the title he claimed when toppling the 7tf giant Nikolai Valuev.
Both fighters are highly-ranked with the WBC and could see a potential deal include the status of a world title eliminator to face Vitali Klitschko in 2014, although contenders Haye and Fury have to manoeuvre the first hurdle by initially putting pen to paper.
