Heavyweight hope Tyson Fury is not backwards in coming forwards whenever the topic is about former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. The London born ex champ has twice pulled out of a pay per view showdown with Fury in the last six months and the unbeaten heavyweight let go today with both barrels
Speaking at today’s press conference to announce his February 15 fight against Mora Basile at the Copper Box Arena in London ahead of what is likely to be an eliminator for a WBO heavyweight title showdown with Dereck Chisora, Fury said "I’ve got a few things to say about David Haye.
"He’s a f**king b***h p***y who wouldn’t fight Tyson Fury.
"Nostradamus over here said he’d pull out and he wouldn’t fight me - and he did.
"If they offered me £20m to go and fight David Haye, I’d tell him to go **** his mother. I’m not interested."
Chisora faces American Kevin Johnson on the same card and victory for both men could see him rematch with Fury in a summer world title eliminator.
Fury defeated Chisora on points in 2011 and says he is glad Vitali Klitschko decided to retire and relinquish his WBC heavyweight crown. "Vitali Klitschko? Good riddance to grandpa robot who was never any good and who would never fight any real opposition,” said Fury.
"He retired because he knew I was coming for him. That’s that.
