David Haye v Tyson Fury confirmed for Sky Sports Box Office in the UK

Phil Jay 11/07/2013

Sky Sports Box Office gets another run out this year on the back of the Carl Froch v Mikkel Kessler II clash in May as David Haye and Tyson Fury collide in a heavyweight bout on September 28 at Manchester Arena.

Former WBA title holder Haye, 32, fights for the first time in over a year in the autumn after announcing his intention to box on despite retiring upon turning 31, and harbours hopes of regaining the belt he held from 2009 to 2011.

On the other hand, 24 year-old Fury is the up and comer, the new puncher on the block, and puts his 21-fight unbeaten record on the line against his most dangerous opponent to date by a long distance.

Undercard fights are already being suggested as to the involvement of Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport, with some of the cream of British talent in line to feature on the biggest fight night of the year so far.

One fighter has already been confirmed by WBN today and that is Tyson’s younger nephew Hughie, whilst Haye’s close friend George Groves is also likely to be handed a spot on the bill as rumours continue to link the Londoner with a world title chance against Carl Froch.
