Former two-weight world champion David Haye has confirmed that his fight with Tyson Fury is almost rearranged and that an announcement is ‘very close’ to being made.
Haye, 32, was forced to postpone his September 28 meeting with Fury after suffering a cut in sparring last Friday and after some rocky moments along the way, will soon be able to focus on a new date for his eagerly-anticipated clash.
“Things are finally now looking up as a rescheduled date for me to beat up Dyson Furry is very close to being officially made,” tweeted Haye this evening.
Earlier today, WBN learned from Fury’s trainer and uncle Peter that a date of January 25 had been mention by broadcasters Sky for the pay-per-view grudge match, although nothing is yet finalised for that time frame.
Mick Hennessy, who promotes unbeaten Fury, is currently in dialogue with Sky to coordinate the rescheduling after suggestions from the 6ft 9ins that he may move on from Haye without following through on the deal.
The money involved in the contest would certainly be a big factor in finally putting Haye and Fury in the ring early next year, with both sides now seemingly keen on having a new target date set to keep the wheels in motion.
