Fury says he’s doing Haye a favor by fighting him
Undefeated Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) seems to think he’s doing former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) by choosing to fight him on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK. Fury feels that the 32-year-old Haye didn’t have a lot of options for his next fight until he came along and agreed to fight him.
At their press conference today, Fury said as quoted by Sky Sports “Let’s not get things confused here. You’re the dog and I’m chucking you a bone. Before the Tyson Fury fight where were you going to go, who were you going to fight? Nobody. I’m giving you a chance. I’m the young up and comer, the one on everyone’s tongue. You’re the one that stinks the place out and blames it on your toe.”
I think Fury is kidding himself. He is mentioned a lot, but mostly because he’s putting himself out in the media by giving tons of interviews and constantly coming up with over the top comments on his twitter page. Most of the other heavyweights are more low key and don’t involve themselves with the media.
Fury obviously is working a lot harder in building his image by hand compared to the other fighters. That’s the only reason I can see why Fury is being mentioned more than the other fighters, because his talent doesn’t speak for him. He looked terrible in his last fight against Steve Cunningham last April, and he’s just very lucky that Cunningham didn’t have the stamina to fight hard for more than a few rounds because Fury would have lost that fight if Cunningham had been able to fight like he did in the 2nd round in the other rounds.
Everything will be sorted out once Haye knocks Fury out in the 1st or 2nd rounds on September 28th. Fury will likely keep talking as much as before, but I have a feeling that the media won’t be listening as much. They have to listen now because Fury still has an unbeaten record, but once Haye brutally knocks him out in Enzo Maccarinelli fashion, I have a feeling that Fury will be looked at in a different light.
