Haye: Klitschko got hit by the ‘Fury injury curse’

David Haye couldn’t help sticking the boot in on Friday following the news that Tyson Fury would have to wait to share the ring with Wladimir Klitschko.

The 34 year-old, who is set to return to action following three and a half years out of action, lost to Klitschko in 2011 before agreeing to fight Fury in late 2012.

Haye pulled out himself after getting cut in sparring before the rescheduled bout fell apart as the Londoner required career-saving shoulder surgery.

Fury was due to meet Klitschko on October 24 in Germany until the heavyweight title holder suffered a calf tear this week and faces a few more weeks of waiting until he can finally challenge for the belts.

As the dust settled on Klitschko’s shock announcement, Haye then questioned whether Fury deserves his chance at all.

“Seems Klitschko got hit with the ‘Fury injury curse’ as well. Clearly the boxing Gods don’t feel Fury deserves that retirement pay cheque,” said Haye via his social media account.

Klitschko v Fury is possibly heading to a date in November or early December as Haye prepares to launch his own belated comeback, which ‘The Hayemaker’ hopes will end with a world title shot of his own in 2016.
