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.”
