Fury endured similar frustration when Haye twice cancelled past fights against himself and vowed to step in as a replacement opponent for Bellew next year.

Speaking in a video on his official Instagram account, Fury said: "I just heard that David Haye has pulled out against Tony.

"I'll be ready, willing and waiting to fight Tony Bellew, May 5, O2 Arena, London.

"Like I said before Tony, you want to fight a real man, you want to fight the best heavyweight in the world, the heavyweight that beat everybody else, the heavyweight that never lost a fight, the real heavyweight champion of the world. I'm ready and waiting.

"Be no contest, one uppercut, ceiling job. If you think you can do any different, prove it wrong."
