Haye vs Fury: Tyson Fury signs contract, press conference Thursday

USA TODAY Sports

David Haye vs Tyson Fury will be made official on Thursday with a press conference, as both fighters have signed the contract to fight on September 28.

The deal is done, and the fight is on. After David Haye signed his contract, Tyson Fury has done the same, and the two will meet on September 28 in Manchester in what will be one of the biggest fights of the year, and promises to have some of the most, erm, interesting build-up you're ever going to see.

Haye (26-2, 24 KO) hasn't fought since July 2012, when he dominated Dereck Chisora in a grudge match that had a whole big licensing brouhaha beforehand, and then sold about 30,000 tickets live. Fury (21-0, 15 KO) last fought in April, knocking out Steve Cunningham, and showing some resiliency by coming off the canvas early in the bout.

The fight has supposedly been agreed to for weeks, with Haye and Fury playing in the press and giving the coming official announcement, which will take place on Thursday, more of a build-up and a lot more anticipation.

So the fight is on. Who do you like to win right now?
