David Haye vs Tyson Fury moved to February 8, 2014

Clive Rose

David Haye has rescheduled his fight with Tyson Fury, and the new date won't come until February of next year.

David Haye had to pull out of Saturday's scheduled fight against Tyson Fury in Manchester, a big blow to the boxing schedule for the final run of 2013, but according to a statement released on his web site, the fight will take place on February 8, 2014, still at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

"News of the date in February is music to my ears," said Haye. "I was absolutely devastated this weekend, and felt as though I'd let a lot of people down. But now, with this new date, I couldn't be happier.

"My fans will still get the chance to see what they all wanted to see this weekend - they'll get to see Tyson Fury sparked out in a spectacular fashion."

Haye (26-2, 24 KO) hasn't fought since stopping Dereck Chisora in five rounds in July 2012, so he'll be out of the ring nearly two years by the time this fight happens, if it does. Fury (21-0, 15 KO) may wind up taking another fight by the end of 2012 to avoid building up rust.
