Haye vs Fury: Booth says Fury has made a mistake, Tyson says he'll be the boss

Shaun Botterill

David Haye and Tyson Fury are, as all expected, talking up their September 28 main event constantly through every media outlet they can.

Anyone who follows boxing knows that David Haye and Tyson Fury are two of the biggest talkers in the sport today, and their September 28 pairing was expected to result in plenty of media back-and-forth. There has been no disappointment, as both fighters and their trainers and everyone else near the fight have been throwing out quotes almost daily.

Fury says that he doesn't mind Haye's claim that he wasn't interested in signing the amateur Fury to a promotional deal with his Hayemaker outfit, and that in two months time, he'll show they made a mistake:

"Well, obviously they made a mistake, didn't they? They didn't sign me, did they? So they must have made a mistake. I wouldn't have went with Hayemaker anyway. I wouldn't have somebody as my promoter who is in the same division as me. It would have been a bit weird fighting the boss but we all know who will be boss come September 28."

On the other side, Haye's trainer and manager Adam Booth has warned Fury that he's jumped into this fight too soon in his career:

"I really like Tyson Fury. I think he's doing a fantastic job of selling himself. ... As a fighter, over the past 12 months he's improved immensely and he's improving very quickly. Huge kudos to his coach Peter Fury. But having said that, even with another nine weeks improvement I'm as confident as I can be that this fight isn't right for Tyson Fury at this moment in time."

Fury (21-0, 15 KO) will be facing a career-best challenge from Haye (26-2, 24 KO), who last year returned from a lengthy absence to smash Dereck Chisora in five rounds in front of a big crowd at Upton Park. Fury is coming off of a win over Steve Cunningham, who like Haye is a former cruiserweight champ.

Is Booth right? Has Fury bitten off more than he can chew with this fight? Or will the big youngster put Haye out to pasture?
