Fury and Haye have been locked in a war of words and will settle their differences at Manchester Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
There is plenty at stake for the two rivals, with the winner edging closer to a world title shot against either Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, while the loser slips down the rankings.
Haye is hoping for another crack at one of the Ukrainians after losing against Wladimir in 2011, but Fury has vowed to shatter these ambitions next month.
He told the Daily Star: "After I have sorted him out in the ring, there will be nowhere left for him to go - he will be finished.
"This could well be Haye's last fight, believe me. But it will be one of many more for Tyson Fury as I head for the world title.
"If anybody can carry that torch for British boxing, then it is me."
Fury is facing the biggest challenge of his career against Haye, who has previously held world titles at heavyweight and cruiserweight.
The Londoner is a ferocious puncher, with 24 knockouts in 26 wins, and Fury knows he must pass this stern test if he is going to dethrone one of the Klitschkos.
"After I've won this fight, I'll be looking to get a world title shot with Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, and that's why I'm taking this fight.
"It's a fight for the fans and it gets me closer to fighting a big guy, getting used to having a big guy all over me, so that when it comes to fighting Vitali or Wladimir, it is not going to be a stress."
