Exclusive: Fury v Haye will only happen as mandatory – Peter Fury

Haye (26-2, 24 KO) recently announced that he will be returning to the ring – after a three-year absence – and has teamed up with young trainer Shane Mcguigan.

Haye had been due to fight undefeated Tyson Fury twice over the past few years, but both times the Londoner had to withdraw through injury. His comeback announcement comes just days before Tyson fights Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF, WBO and WBA super world heavyweight titles.

“The return of David Haye has no bearing whatsoever on what we are doing with Tyson and Hughie.,” Peter exclusively told World Boxing News.

“It is business at the end of the day and good luck to him on his comeback, but we are not interested at all. We’ve had very bad, frustrating experiences with him and have no interest in any fight down the line.

“The only way he could fight Tyson is if he got himself into a mandatory position for one of his belts. If Tyson becomes champion, he won’t be relinquishing his belts or stepping aside.”

The winner of Klitschko v Fury this weekend will firmly be on Haye’s radar should he come through Mark De Mori on January 16, as the Londoner would regain a top ten ranking with the WBA for the first time in over three years.
