Trainer Peter Fury has revealed that further talks regarding a possible fight between his nephew Tyson and former world champion David Haye have been fruitful and an announcement will soon be made on the British super-fight.
Earlier, Peter had told World Boxing News that an agreement would have to be reached in the next 24 hours or the bout would be scrapped, leading to both sides attempting to thrash out their differences behind closed doors.
Haye’s trainer Adam Booth is set to made a public statement this week as established from today’s negotiations, with Fury adding that the fight is ‘back on course’ and that things are now ‘amicable’ between both camps.
All the talk in the build-up to the fight, possibly to be announced this week, has so far been done by Tyson and Peter, with Haye and Booth keeping quiet on whether the clash will eventually be signed on the dotted line.
Fight fans in the UK are growing increasingly frustrated at the pace of progress on the £10million heavyweight blockbuster, with five weeks now passed since the original statements of intent from Haye and Fury.
Hopefully for their sakes a deal can finally be ironed for what would be a touted September 28 battle in Manchester Arena – which would see the fight head to a lucrative pay-per-view with one of the main players on home soil.
