Despite a new date of February 8 being rescheduled for the eagerly awaited David Haye Vs Tyson Fury heavyweight showdown Fury himself has still not signed the new contract and wants a guarantee Haye will turn up this time.
Fury was understandably angry that Haye pulled out of this Saturday’s(Sept 28), clash after sustaining a nasty cut underneath his left eye last Friday. In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports earlier today Fury said he is still not sure Haye wants the fight so wants certain guarantees he will not pull out again.
Speaking to Sky Sports Tyson Fury said: "Is David Haye going to stick to his guns and take the fight again or is he going to take another fight in the meanwhile, fight a Klitschko or Povetkin. Is he really going to take this fight?
"If we do go and do this fight again - it’s been set but there’s no contracts signed - I want him to sign in the contract that if he pulls out he pays for all of my training camp and that has to be guaranteed.
"I’m not going through all this torture again, weeks and weeks and weeks of training and being away from my family for months on end, for it to get to the fight week and him to pull out.
"I would have fought with two cut eyes, I would have fought with a broken leg. There was nothing that was going to stop me from fighting. I had injuries before that fight, you can’t go through a 15-week training camp and not expect to get an injury. But I didn’t mention them, it’s not in my mentality to do that.
"We are messing with an excuse maker and somebody who doesn’t really want this fight in my opinion, so I am not going to hold my breath for him taking this fight.
"I’m not going to stake my life on him getting in the ring on February 8. What’s to say he’s not going to get another cut or hurt his shoulder or arm or elbow, chip his tooth or hurt his ear."
