Johnny mentions that Haye may have to go down the Fury route because there are no big names in the top 10 or America. Even though I would prefer to keep our fighters apart, Fury is ranked in the top 5 in the majority of the sanctioning bodies. So this would be a meaningful fight for Haye to take to maintain his top 3 ranking & secure a title shot. Would prefer to see Haye make his Heavyweight debut in America against Stiverne, Povetkin, Wilder or the like.

Fury isn't in the Hayemakers league! He should not be anywhere near a fight with David Haye, but it would be nice to see the big mess get taught a lesson! Tyson Fury is not a big puncher, he's just awkward with his height, but Haye would handle that. Valuev was the biggest heavyweight boxer ever, and Haye beat him, Audley Harrison is 6ft 7 and Haye knocked him out. I'd predict the fight to go a similar way to the Haye/Chisora fight last July, Haye to win by knockout between the 4th and 7th round. Fury would not go further than that

This would be a very interesting clash of styles but at the end of it neither man will give an inch to the other. Fury will try and keep him at range with his jab, but the fighter in him will rear its head and will ultimately mean him stand and try and trade with Haye. Patience will be the key for Haye to keep calm while he finds the opening, and Fury as we know will give him it, and not to be fooled by Fury switching stances while he beat up Rogan as south paw Haye won't fall for that and ultimately win by stoppage in 9...although Fury is a warrior and wont be him making the decision. Winner should fight winner of the price thompson fight...and the loser fight the loser.

These two fighters are worlds apart, I cannot see anything other than an early stoppage for David Haye. Tyson Fury has neither the power, speed or stamina to keep up with Haye. You only have to look at how much Fury struggled in his last fight against a natural Cruiser Weight, who in my opinion would have gone on to take the win if it wasn't for Fury physically leaning on him for the entire fight, not to mention the controversial stoppage as well. Haye doesn't really need this fight at all, he came out of retirement solely for another shot at one of the Klitchko's and he should stay the course. That has to be where his priorities lie: winning a World Title.

Even though Fury has a massive height and reach advantage if he tries to keep Haye on the end of his jab and box from range I think he'll lose. The key for Fury to beat Haye is to shorten his punches and fight up close like he did in the later rounds against Cunninham. Haye struggled against Chisora for the first few rounds because he applied constant pressure and didn't allow Haye to move in and out of range. I don't think Haye is particular good at fighting up close and when his opponents tie him up and push him around he seems to tire very quickly. I think if Fury uses his natural size by bullying Haye on the inside he could stop him, if he stays on the jab and tries to pick Haye off I think he will lose. Fury doesn't have the speed of movement of Wladimir Klitschko so I think he will need to turn it into an upclose dog fight and sap Haye's will. Most of Haye's power is from range, up close I don't think he can hurt Fury.

dunno if it gets to 7 rounds fight tips in favour of fury early ko for hay first 3 rounds and we wont have to listen to fury sing!

Fury won't last 3 rounds against the quality Haye will bring. Every time a quality shot is thrown at Fury it lands and leaves him wobbled and these from guys no where near as polished as Haye.

Although I quite like Fury 'cos of his character(even though he is full of it) I think Haye would beat him under 7 rounds,he's in a different class-my opinion!

Ed Osbourne says...

Fury is not hard to hit. He's too big and clumsy, low guard and he grabs and holds a lot. He struggled against an unfit Chisora, fought Johnson who took the fight at 3 weeks notice. Cunningham was 3 stone lighter than Fury. When he gets in with Haye the only thing Fury will be hitting is the canvas. Haye will

Fury will never want to take this fight on because he doesnt have the boxing skill to deal with Haye

I don't see this fight going 3 rounds. Haye will pulverise him.

I would love to see this fight just for the banter lol and the words that will be exchanged haha. Haye should win by KO, but Fury can put up a fight. Should be good if it happens.

Haye is a great fighter, but can see Fury causing a big ko upset here, first five rounds for me!

Tyson Fury is a fighting man!

Dean Goulding says...

Haye has absolutely no reason to fight Fury. Fury has beaten nobody and he almost got beaten by an average cruiserweight. Haye would knock him into next week. It'd be as big of a joke as Haye v Harrison (or anyone v Harrison)

This fight has to be made now as neither has the option of a klitschko right now. Both are characters and both are box office so will be a huge fight probably at a football stadium. Haye though is a different class than fury and will knock him out convincingly leaving the klitchko brothers no option but to give him another shot!!!
