Team Fury: David Haye's injury 'seems rather convenient'

Shaun Botterill

David Haye won't face Tyson Fury as scheduled this Saturday, and Fury's lawyer isn't convinced that Haye ever really wanted the fight.

David Haye suffered a serious cut in sparring, which forced him to call off Saturday's bout against Tyson Fury, but while Haye expressed severe disappointment with canceling the fight, Fury's team aren't so sure that he ever really wanted it, and Fury's lawyer Chris Farnell is outright saying that the injury smells fishy:

"There are serious doubts as to whether Haye actually wanted this fight with Tyson or not. Haye has said his injury was caused by sparring. Well, I'm not sure how many professional boxers so close to a fight spar so heavily.

"He's sustained this huge cut on his eye. So he didn't have a headguard on? Or if he did have one on, how did he get caught with such a big punch? There are frustrating questions that we are forced to ask as a result of the excuses we're being given.

"It's a fact now - the fight has been delayed. It all seems rather convenient to us, to be honest."

Fury (21-0, 15 KO) and his team are working to reschedule the fight, according to a press release from Hennessy Sports:

"We have been working around the clock with Team Fury, Hayemaker and Sky in an attempt to resolve the situation and reschedule a new date as quickly as possible. We have looked into a number of possibilities and have been left very frustrated as due to these circumstances beyond our control, there is nothing that can be done to salvage the 28th, but this is a super-fight that the fans deserve to see and Tyson is eager to deliver for them."

One possibility floating around right now is a new date in December, but we'll have to wait and see. There is also a bit of talk out there that Haye may be looking to see if Alexander Povetkin upsets Wladimir Klitschko on October 5, at which point he would try to secure a fight with Povetkin, but that's just talk for now.
