The current Irish heavyweight champion and former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, secured a fifth-round TKO win over Vinny Maddalone earlier this month and now he wants to go head to head with former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye.
The undefeated British prospect, who holds a perfect record of winning all of his 19 professional fights, with 14 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, stated he would also love to fight Tomasz Adamek, if not Haye.
“We are looking to return in November. We have a few American fighters in mind, but we are hoping to get David Haye or [former world title challenger] Tomasz Adamek to take the fight. If they don’t want it, then there are other name fighters who we will look at,” said Peter Fury Tyson Fury’s uncle and trainer, to World Boxing News.
The 6 ft 9 In giant was being scheduled for a match against his fellow countryman David Price but he refused for the bout since he believes he has nothing to prove against Price.
Refusing for a fight with Price earlier this year brought a lot of criticism towards Fury. However, while discussing the matter, Fury insisted that he wants to fight the best out there and Price is not in the same league as of yet.
He added, “So much for Tyson avoiding David Price because he is too good, when he is looking to fight the likes of Haye.”
Well, chances of setting up a mega fight with David Haye are not good for Fury because Haye is only looking for Vitali Klitschko at this point in time.
The 31-year-old brash Londoner, who is more commonly known as the Hayemaker, has clearly said that he will walk away from the sport once again, if he will not get a fight with Vitali, who will defend his title against Manuel Charr on September 8.
Recently, Vitali’s manager Bernard Boente hinted that a fight between his man and Haye can take place in March next year. Nevertheless, let’s see if it really gets real.
