WILL HAYES TOE BE ALL RIGHT FOR THIS FIGHT.

”De Lima I.

220? I don’t think so. He would be stronger — but also much slower! 210-213 is perfect for him.”

De Lima1, he bulked up to 220 for Valuev …

David’s liitle toe

Hiya, I am David’s little toe. I am totally fine (so far!) unlike when me and David lost to Wladimir badly. I know David was a toe-tal flop (little pun there) against Wladimir after all his talk and publicity stunts for 2 years, stupid antics and Sky TV con job which fooled all the mugs, but this time will be different, I promise! Toe-tally, oops I mean, totally!

Limey Jay I couldn’t have said that better myself sir,spot on, Fury is too undisciplined to use his obvious advantages to the utmost,shame really as he was starting to use his tools recently, you never know though he might get back up if he’s floored, then we have a fight.

USS Cunningham stands for “Up for Sale Steve” Cunningham.

Of COURSE Cunningham is going to back him. He just got a paycheck from him for sparring. He’d be dumb NOT to back him.

Posted September 5, 2013 10:45 pm 


Limey jay

Turbo hamster…..great summary there mate.
The underlying thing for me is that fury is easy to hit, and hit flush…..either pulling back, or walking onto big shots.
The exact polar opposite to wlad, who keeps his chin well out of range due to the problems he had early on in his career.
Tyson is quick , with a decent range of punches, but he is still way too eager to slug it out , which is a dangerous game to pay with someone as quick and powerful as haye.
I,m expecting a very exciting , very short fight with haye winning with a brutal k.o

Steve I agree fury beat you by illegal ko BUT Haye is the best heavyweight under 240 period! Fury gonna get destroyed!!! Lol

No matter how anyone puts it, unless Tyson Fury wins this fight David Haye will still be the best HW in UK…

Posted September 5, 2013 6:57 pm 


Turb0-H@mster

I think Haye will be happy if Fury thinks he can march forward and lean all over him.

Haye is very adept at catching opponents coming forward with too much confidence – the beginning of the end vs Mormeck came from what looked an innocuous shot as Haye was backing off under pressure, he landed big on Chisora off the backfoot, and he walked Ruiz onto a peach in the very first round of that fight.

It`s what he wanted Wlad to do – after all the winding up talk, but Wlad is too too smart to throw away his best tools.

I can see Fury starting this cautiously – trying to have it resemble the Kevin Johnson fight, but Fury’s jab and Wlads jab are totally different animals, and the threat posed by the rest of their arsenal is different too.
Wlads left hook is murderous, his straight right is power and control – there isn`t a lot of leeway for operating within Wlads range where you aren`t susceptible to one of those shots – or being tied up.

Fury doesn`t have that. He has fast hands for a guy his size, enough power that you can`t walk through him, and I like his range of punches – he`ll go to the body, and his uppercut can be effective when he lands it on his opponent instead of himself.

I just don`t see that as enough to put Haye off though.
I see Haye parrying a lazy jab and following it straight back in with a right hand that sets the tone for the rest of the fight. Once Haye has Fury wary of using his jab it`ll be a matter of Haye leaping in and out doing as he pleases.

Posted September 5, 2013 5:57 pm 


moonshineman

Hahahahahahahaha, Cunningham is a little young to go senile, but chit happens, doesn’t it?.

Posted September 5, 2013 5:50 pm 


TARK

Cunningham is about the same size as Haye and is probably comparing himself to Haye.

Steve was offered very attractive money to spar with Fury. The height, weight, reach, and physique are very similar and he can box and think at a high level.. He’s the guy to go after for sparring.. He’s but he isn’t Haye.

If Haye can bring the same intensity and concentration to the Fury fight he brought to the Chisora fight he’ll be very hard to beat. That won’t be easy because that was kind of a peak fight like Louis vs Baer. I never saw a heavyweight of Haye’s size or smaller who could beat him—but Fury is freaking HUGE.. That’s what makes this fight so interesting.. Fury knows how to use his weight to lean all over you and brawl.. Is that going to play into Haye’s hands? Or no? He’s pretty tough inside and outside.

The referee can make a huge difference in a fight where a huge, massive guy is pushing, shoving, leaning on, and mauling a smaller guy.

Boomboomboy

Haye knocks Fury out whenever he decides to. He may do what he done with Audley when he’d had a reported big bet on the 3rd round and carry him till its the round he’s backed.
Enzo Maccarinelli style beating heading Furys way, shouldn’t even be a sparring partner for Haye never mind an opponent

FURY IS THE MOST EXCITING EXPLOSIVE FIGHTER OUT THERE SO GET BEHIND THE MAN AND GIVE HIM THE SUPPORT HE DESERVES HES THE ONLY MAN OUT THERE WHO CAN BEAT THE KLICHKOS

Peter Fury’s walking a tight rope and could use a shot of Bushmills. First, his son Hughie is fighting McPhilbin in a step-up match next week. Then, Baby Hughie’s fighting again on the Tyson-Haye undercard only 2 weeks later. That’s 3 bouts involving his son and his nephew within 2 weeks! Talk about pressure.

I believe that if Haye gets three or four really good shots it will be a short night. I simply can’t see Fury winning this at all.

Whatever happens I hope Haye is around for a while, complete mad man but very funny and extremely likeable, we need him.

“Tyson can win this fight but he has to use every little bit of his size to do so. He has to really impose himself on haye, push him around and bully him, just like he did in the later rounds against cunningham.” – Cosign. Also work off the jab and step in and out of the pocket. The way he did against Kevin Johnson.

Posted September 5, 2013 1:08 pm 


Fight Aficionado

Cool to see Cunningham and Fury working together after their war. He’s no doubt bringing great sparring that’ll buoy Fury’s preparation. Canelo should take note: Hard sparring = best preparation.

steve really hated fury and I don’t think he’s lying in this article.
Im a friend of steve on facebook and he has written about things from tysons camp.
Tyson is crazy guy and Im sure steve has had some fun moments in his camp.

Haye has this fight down up within 3 rounds. I see an Enzo style beat down looming.

Posted September 5, 2013 12:45 pm 


the voice of reason

Tyson can win this fight but he has to use every little bit of his size to do so. He has to really impose himself on haye, push him around and bully him, just like he did in the later rounds against cunningham. As good as haye is, this tactic will eventually wear him down. If fury stands off and tries to box he will get pummeled, no doubt about it. Its gonna be fascinating to see how he comes out in this fight

Posted September 5, 2013 11:57 am 


PEEJ

Of course Cunningham is going to back Fury. He is probably getting paid good money to spar with him. I am not a Haye fan but he wins this fight by KO.

Posted September 5, 2013 11:33 am

I think Haye wins this.But its a great fight for a young Fury,its a great learning experance.And if Fury can push him around and still be there after 7rds then a upset could happen…wouldnt be completely shocked.

The fight will be close but Haye still wins it and I’m standing by a UD Haye.

Posted September 5, 2013 10:31 am

220? I don’t think so. He would be stronger — but also much slower! 210-213 is perfect for him.

Posted September 5, 2013 10:24 am

Haye will bulk up to 220 and HE will win this fight

I favor DH due to his experience, KO power in both hands, Ring IQ,
excellent hand and foot speed and massive strength.

I hope Fury retires Haye.
Fury always comes to fight and gives value for money.
Haye has always looked for the least risk, most reward, until he had to face Wlad, then he soiled himself, ran for 35 minutes and blamed his little toe.
Come on Fury

Posted September 5, 2013 9:30 am 


flash knock down

You know something that I have noticed in my 35 years in this sport. I have never heard a sparring partner say that the guy he was helping get ready for a big fight say that his guy was going to lose. This either going to be one hell of a fight or Haye is going to lose.We know what Fury is going to do we don’t know which Haye is going to show up . Is it going to be the Haye that gave one of the K brothers a win or the one that took apart Chrisola? I am going with Haye based on the fact he is smarter and he really is a better fighter. Being But being better does not always mean that you are going to win. If Haye looses this fight it is over for him a serious challengerto the championship.

Looks like Fury has been eating all those Cunningham lunches he is paying for. He is well out of shape. Uncoordinated, flat footed, feather fisted, china chinned, pudgy, big mouthed trash talker. I’m looking forward to this demolition of the mong boy.
