After Gypsy King’s KO of Deontay Wilder, David Haye says he still wants to fight Tyson Fury.
After the ‘Gypsy King’ knocked out Deontay Wilder, David Haye wants to fight Tyson Fury.
When former heavyweight world champion David Haye called out current WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, he declared he was “100% serious.” In September, the Hayemaker won an exhibition bout against Joe Fournier, reaffirming his long-held desire to fight the Gypsy King.
On Saturday night, Fury defeated Deontay Wilder for the third time, knocking out the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round of one of the all-time great heavyweight fights.
This hasn’t deterred Haye from expressing his desire to fight Fury again in the future.
To iFL TV, Haye stated, “I was 100 percent serious.”
“I said the only guy for whom I would put my body through a comeback would be the world’s number one heavyweight.”
“Unless it’s for the big one, there’s no reason why I’d punish myself and do whatever it takes to put myself in a position to give myself a shot.
“And it doesn’t get any greater than that; for good cause, I’d be a thousand-to-one underdog.”
“Hopefully, once Team Fury crunches the stats, something in the next two months will happen where they’ll be looking for an opponent.”
According to SportSkeeda, Fury’s victory over Wilder in Las Vegas netted him roughly $30 million (£22 million).
However, Haye believes that if he and Fury were to fight, they would both make a lot of money since fans from all over the world would flock to witness the two Brits square off.
“I know how big-time boxing works, and when he figures out how much money a Haymaker bout generates vs any of the other possibilities, even if they look more respectable on paper, he knows it’s out there,” Haye continued.
“In the back of my mind, I’m thinking that if it doesn’t happen this year, it might happen in ten years.”
Haye hasn’t fought professionally since losing to Tony Bellew for the second bout at the O2 Arena in 2018.
The 40-year-old finished his career with a remarkable 28-4 record, including 26 knockout victories.
