Fury is not going to give the genius Haye time to think because Fury is going to put the Big Guy pressure on Haye and throw Haye out of the ring. Fury may get a DQ in this one, but so what, he still beats the little forker in the fight. Fury fights big at 6’9″ and wins big over toe jam Haye.Posted July 10, 2013 11:04 am
Haye is gonna win against Fury – EVERYTIME!! Its not just about power,hearts,guts – its about BRAINS, how a boxer THINKS inside the ring while fighting….. Haye has got quick reflexes and is a fast thinker thats why he can fight guys far bigger than him and still have a decent chance to beat them. A good heart and chin can only get you somewhere but when you are faced with a good fast thinker you are literally a PUNCHBAG. Fury loses not because of his heart,or his chin,or his experience – he loses this fight because he cant think as fast as Haye. Simple as.Posted July 10, 2013 8:16 am
Eddie Chambers, a Jimmy Young sized boxer, made a wise move and went down to cruiserweight… But he’s been oddly idle so I wonder what the Hell is wrong with him.”
The above comment is seriously questionable.
I would like to offer up a far better bunch of US Heavyweight hopefuls circa 1984-1986
There was a time in the 80′s – say 1985-87 when we had the likes of James Broadaxe Broad (RIP) who turned out to be a dud, Greg Page(RIP), PINKY Pinklon Thomas, TERRIBLE Tim Witherspoon, Marvis Frazier, James Buster Douglas , Mike Tyson, Tony TNT Tucker, Jesse Ferguson, Mitch Blood Green, Tony Tubbs and Carl TRUTH Williams (RIP), all scrambling for the position of Heavyweight top dog as LARRY HOLMES dominance of the heavyweight scene was on the wane!
Sorry to disagree with you TARK but, this crop of American Heavyweights is leagues above the present crop of Heavyweight pretendersPosted July 10, 2013 3:07 am
All you Haye-Tards have forgotten one thing in your promotion of Haye being the GREAT Boxer. First of all is his nickname. Haymaker. Hmmmm haymakers are large looping punches that leave the launcher wide open. And Haye has a habit of leaving his left hand at his balls and leading with his face. He is not the greatest boxer, and Fury is going to nail him coming in and launching his haymakers. Fury is BIG and is going to fight BIG. He learned this in the USS fight. He is no Nick Valuev and will fight at all 6’9″ of his. Haye is a half foot shorter than Fury and is going to have a problem with that Fury advantage. He will not have a jab since he is too short. His only hope is to counter with a right haymaker which Fury should counter with a left hook and then an upper cut and get the little guy off balance. Then hold his head and blast him with a right and then throw the little forker out the ring. Fury is going to win this one because he likes a scrap and I do not think Haye will hang with the scrapper. All aboard !!!Posted July 10, 2013 12:05 am

“I think the author is a bit too harsh on Fury. He has not been overly careful in picking opponents.” – Agreed. Fury beat Chisora and Cunningham, both quality heavyweights who were legit top 10 at the time.Posted July 9, 2013 2:19 pm

What have t o look at is Haye nasty KO of Chisora something vitali could not do. Easiest fight if Haye career Fury will get knocked out in 1 round if he signs the contract which i seriously doubt he will do.Posted July 9, 2013 9:38 am
While I think Haye is too much for Fury at this point, I think the author is a bit too harsh on Fury. He has not been overly careful in picking opponents. Dereck Chisora was unbeaten and well thought of when Fury met him, and Kevin Johnson was near the top of the division when he fought Fury. On paper, these were tough fights, and pretty ambitious for someone as green as Fury. Deontay Wilder’s people have been needlessly careful with their charge, but I think the Rogans and Madalones Fury met are reasonable opponents for a heavyweight prospect.Posted July 9, 2013 9:00 am
Must admit, I, Like everyone else, saw this as an easy fight for Haye. But the more I look at it, the more I see at least a case being made for Fury. After all, all he has to do is look at Wladimir’s easy pummeling of Haye for a blueprint to doing the same himself (Shame Price didn’t do the same). Dont get me wrong, I know Fury is no Klitschko, that idea is truly laughable, but if Fury can keep Haye at long range, and smother him when he jumps inside, he will at least have a shot.
Gareth Scott (UK)
I saw the fight Vs Kevin Johnson, Fury did box fairly well on the outside but Johnson took that fight on ten days notice and he’s not on the same planet as Haye in terms of athleticism and punching power. Haye will K.O Fury within’ 4 rounds I think, as soon as Fury engages it’ll be over, he’s been floored hard twice off people who had 40% K.O ratios, Haye’s is over 90% and he’s one of the best finishers in boxing, these are just the facts, people who rate Tyson Fury need their heads looking at.Posted July 9, 2013 4:45 am
Fury is going to walk straight into every trap Haye sets, and he`ll be eating right hands down the pipe after every lazy jab.
Fury will be grabbing on early and Haye will have none of it – either flopping or bunny hitting Fury who will then get dirty himself.
Fury seems to recover well enough from a shot, and has shown decent enough stamina and workrate, so I could see him lasting until Haye gets his second wind and then the ref stops it with Fury taking punches.Posted July 9, 2013 4:10 am
Doesnt matter! Klit will easily smash both of these cats! He already gave haye the buisness!Posted July 9, 2013 3:19 am

Whipped: Never said that I think Fury will beat Haye. What are you mentally retarded or just read at a 2nd-grade level?
Go back and read my analysis again with an open mind and stop insulting me like a teenage boy. MILLIONS of boxing fans think Broner lost that fight, not just me.
Stop attacking me personally like a TROLL with fake names and I’ll leave you alone. There is no pattern with me, but accuracy. I also predicted The Tiger would beat Price both times and was rooting for him the entire way. Man-up and use your REAL handle when you insult me, COWARD. All you do is hide from me because you’re a total p*ssy and an absolute zero.Posted July 9, 2013 3:04 am
Mmmm I see where SC is coming from now. He actually thinks Fury will beat Haye. He is always on Mayweathers case about anything. He has delusions that Malignaggi beat Broner. I’m starting to see a pattern here now. Explains the big mouth and low esteem. As they say, it’s the empty vessel that makes the most noise.Posted July 9, 2013 2:13 am
The Mitchell-Banks fights are the first fights we’ve seen between top American heavyweight contenders in a long time… Next year we’ll start seeing more, involving Jennings, Wilder, Hanks, Banks, Mitchell, Scott, and Thompson.. These guys are ready to mix.. That’s as good a group as the US has ever had at heavyweight.. Four of the 7 are undefeated and only Thompson has more than one loss..
Eddie Chambers, a Jimmy Young sized boxer, made a wise move and went down to cruiserweight… But he’s been oddly idle so I wonder what the Hell is wrong with him.Posted July 9, 2013 1:36 am

Squared-Circle Real Talk Haye is in a totally different league than Fury were talking about a Quantum leap above and the man can throw power shots from different angles with speed. God could come down bless Fury and Haye would still KO him. Only way Fury can possible win is if Haye gets lost does not make the fight and they give it to him as a win by default.Posted July 9, 2013 1:11 am
I am going with Fury in this one. Because, when the fight gets tough Fury gets going, and he likes a tough scrap. And a tough scrap is just what Haye is going to get. I think Fury will throw him around a bit, lean on him, step on him, push in his face and hold him and KO him like he did with Cunntingham. Hold and hit and get away with it. Should be a good one.Posted July 9, 2013 12:18 am
According to the writer,Fury should just stay home and accept defeat,why the hell should he even show up to the fight!!Posted July 8, 2013 8:12 pm
And Wilder hasn’t been selective? ??Posted July 8, 2013 8:09 pm
i can understand Haye’s almost giddy eagerness to get Fury in a boxing ring. if he doesn’t hold back, i see Haye landing explosive powerpunches with virtual impunity and this fight being stopped within 5 rounds. Fury should provide relatively easy work for Haye.Posted July 8, 2013 8:08 pm

Fury is fighting Ronnie Corbett.Posted July 8, 2013 6:54 pm
Wilder’s career isn’t over… He tried to get Chisora… He did get Liakhovich, which will not prove anything — but Wilder is definitely at the point in his experience where his team is trying to seriously upgrade the competition.
Let’s wait to see how he does in the next couple years, since he’s trying to get name fighters to oppose him now, before saying he’s a washout.Posted July 8, 2013 6:23 pm
Wilders resume is extremely poor, his best win is against Audley Harrison, that is his best win by far, lol.Posted July 8, 2013 5:58 pm
Not only aren’t we sure if Fury-Haye will happen, but it now seems that the planned Hughie Fury-Darren Corbett bout is off. Boxrec has no opponent listed, but it’s still possible Hughie will fight someone else in Belfast next week. Does anyone know what happened to Corbett?Posted July 8, 2013 5:49 pm
This pundit posits.., “I don’t see Fury getting any better. He’s the finished product at 25 … As long as Fury is kept away from Deontay Wilder, Klitschko bros, Tony Thompson, and Kubrat Pulev, he should be okay … Haye should get to Fury’s chin awfully quick … the fight could be over once Fury initiates his first clinch.” … LMFAO
Finished product… Like he thinks Canelo is the finished product at 22. WHY?
What is it with condescending writers? Based on Thompson vs Price, Tony can now KO Fury??? And what kind of gigantic strength would a small heavyweight like Haye need to KO a 6’9”X 250lb brawler in the first clinch? The fight is going longer than the 1st clinch. Fury’s punches will have more effect on Haye than Haye’s have on Fury—and Haye is not a combination of Johnson, Louis, Holmes, Foreman, Lewis, Pulev, and the Klitschko bros.
I make Haye a 4:1 favorite and see him stopping Fury in 8 or 9 brutal rounds—complete with point deductions and numerous warnings to Fury.Posted July 8, 2013 5:40 pm
I’d really enjoy seeing Haye take on Stiverne. Neither can beat a Klitschko but they’d make for an interesting shootout.Posted July 8, 2013 5:39 pm
As critical as I am of Fury he’s fought a better level of competition than Wilder. As far as these suspects (Price, Fury, and Wilder) go, Fury should be rated above Wilder. At least until Haye KOs fury and Wilder steps up and fights a live body (i.e., not the corpse of the White Wolf). Honestly, I would have preferred to see Fury and Wilder get it on. However disappointing Haye has been at times he should prove to be too much for Fury. Don’t see it as very competitive even. Haye has too much class (in the ring, not necessarily out of it) for Fury.Posted July 8, 2013 5:38 pm
juggenaut please explain why this will happenPosted July 8, 2013 5:31 pm
I’m still waiting to see a signed contract from Fury. There’s always the possibility this bout could go south like the proposed Fury-Price and Fury-Pulev fights. We’ll know soon enough.Posted July 8, 2013 5:31 pm
Haye is going to knock Fury out the ringPosted July 8, 2013 5:25 pm
totally agree boxing barlow, the watson fight was both my finest hour and greatest tragedy rolled into one. fury with his heart on his sleeve beats a cash cow fighter. Cant see him ko ing haye though, as he is a supreme athlete and cunningham went down through exhaustion more than anythingPosted July 8, 2013 4:51 pm
shane in this you are wrong. It was furys first fight in the US and he tried to impress by blowing away cunningham. Cunningham landed flush and dropped fury, which would have happened to most heavyweights. He did not , however, panic, nor was he seriously hurt. He just changed his game plan to use his advantages and won the fight. This is a lesson learnt for him. I would like to see Wilder step up a bit, albeit gradualy, because if he an carry that power and KO percentage up levels, I will be extremely excited to watch him fight. I am a lover of the sport.Posted July 8, 2013 4:46 pm
Firstly big kudos to Fury for taking this fight! I honestly expected him to sit on the side lines beating the fringe contenders and has been’s until the K brothers and Haye had retired, then fight for a vacant belt, step into Vlads boots and carry on where they’ve left off fighting the Mormeks, Charr’s, Sosnoski’s and Briggs. Basically riding the gravy train. These two guys will definitely put on a show leading up to the fight and capture the wider publics imagination as well. I’m surprised though at hate Fury seems to attract compared to Haye. As a British boxing fan I followed Hayes career and put up with his trash talking in the hope that we could have another great boxer on our shores. Therefore I felt seriously let down by Haye after forking out 20 odd pound to watch him run like a chicken away from Vlad and happily accepting the wide points loss rather than go all out for a KO. Haye should watch the second Eubank V Watson fight for a lesson in heart. Eubank was out on his feet and taking an awful beating but unlike Haye he refused to give up and pulled the biggest ever come back out of the bag. Could Haye have found that KO punch to turn the fight back in his favor when he was so obviously behind on the score cards against Vlad? We’ll never know as he did not have the heart to give it a go. Say what you want about Fury but I believe he’s got a fighters heart and if he looses to Haye he will put it all out there and that’s why I’ll be supporting Fury in this fight. Who will win? Well the easy money has to be on Haye via KO. But if I was Furys camp I would have him leaning all over Haye sapping his strength and wearing him down. Watch the Bowe v Herbie Hide fight on you tube to see how a clumsy big guy can beat a skilled smaller guy.Posted July 8, 2013 4:45 pm
Ducking Wilder is making some posters uncomfortable. Wilder flattens Fury. A cruiser with little power almost finished him.Posted July 8, 2013 4:35 pm
This fightfight ill go one of 2 ways. haye ko before round 5 or fury on UD. Haye doesnt cope well with super heavys but does have the explosive power o knock them out. On the other hand , if fury can keep it long range and box to a plan he can frustrate haye all night a la klitchko.Fury improves every fight and is not scared of mixing it up, but knows this is the wrong plan when he faces haye. Bearing in mind that fury throws as many punches as a super middle per fight, Hs a good chin, youth and has kept busy, I lean towards fury by UD. Fury’s carreer has been well managed so far by a gradual step up in levels. At least he has not been mismanaged and thrown to the dogs like an ill prepared price.Posted July 8, 2013 4:18 pm
I can not wait for this one just to see Tyson Fury get KTFO!!! Haye all the way.Posted July 8, 2013 4:17 pm
I believe Stiverne will turn out to be the stiffest test for any of the contenders. He’s a legitimate super hard hitting heavyweight who’s only been stopped once over 5 years ago.Posted July 8, 2013 4:09 pm
my only hope is there is a 24/7 done on this fight, the contrast of haye with his celebrity pals and his playboy lifestyle & fury living in a caravan going coarsing with his dags. for interest this is the biggest fight of the year anywhere!!! ( i include mayweather canelo in that)Posted July 8, 2013 3:45 pm
