[Photo] Haye Suffers Cut in Sparring, Fury Bout Postponed

"Sorry to everyone who brought tickets and hotels," Fury Tweeted. "Haye's excuses are boring. He don't want to fight me!"


David Haye’s anticipated UK showdown with undefeated Tyson Fury will now be delayed due to a deep left eye cut suffered by Haye in sparring.

The news was announced earlier today with Haye posting a picture of the injury on social media. Fury took to Twitter to claim the cut was just Haye’s latest attempt to avoid their confrontation.

“Sorry to everyone who brought tickets and hotels,” Fury Tweeted. “Haye’s excuses are boring. He don’t want to fight me!”

At press time, a tentative rescheduled date has not been announced.


We all knew Fury would have something to say, but that cut eliminates any serious talk of ducking. Anything can happen when you’re throwing punches and this is just an unfortunate setback. Although fighters normally tone down the sparring the week before the fight, it’s not unheard for some guys to continue going hard in an effort to stay intense and work off any additional pounds. And from the looks of the below recent sparring footage, it may be in Fury’s best interest that this fight is being delayed.

  1. I dont think the fight will happen now, I suspect Haye will move for a Klitschko fight next, which is annoying, maybe Chisora will step in??? I know Frank Warren suggested it after Derrick’s fight last weekend…

    TBF Fury was/is in great shape, and looking really sharp, I still think Haye would of won, but Fury started making me have a SLIGHT bit of belief in him haha

    Its strange Haye seemed to of shun most of the media publicity and promotion for this fight, Fury has been the one all over the papers, news and sports channels and shows, usually its Haye everywhere promoting the fight…
