Fury: I’ll retire Haye, then go after a Klitschko!
Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury has promised to dispose of David Haye’s career on September 28 as the high-profile British pair prepare to lock horns at Manchester Arena live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Fury, 25, was in line for an IBF title eliminator against Kubrat Pulev before turning his attention to former WBA king Haye, and believes he can end the 32 year-old’s hopes of ever regaining the world crown this autumn.
“After I have sorted him out in the ring, there will be nowhere left for him to go – he will be finished,” Fury told The Daily Star.
“This could well be Haye’s last fight, believe me. But it will be one of many more for Tyson Fury as I head for the world title. If anybody can carry that torch for British boxing, then it is me.”
The one-time British and Irish champion heads into the fight with a perfect 21-fight record and boasts 15 stoppages, with Fury hell-bent on beating the ‘Hayemaker’ to a shot a formidable belt hoarders Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko in 2014.
“After I’ve won this fight, I’ll be looking to get a world title shot with Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, and that’s why I’m taking this fight,” said Fury.
“It’s a fight for the fans and it gets me closer to fighting a big guy, getting used to having a big guy all over me, so that when it comes to fighting Vitali or Wladimir, it is not going to be a stress.”
