    I want Fury to win, but that picture makes me want to see him get dropped.

    I want Haye to get KO'ed. He's smug far beyond his accomplishments, and now his choirboy act is rich given he only got his shot at WK by smacktalk and publicity stunts.

    The banter hasn't been as good as I was expecting, although it will heat up soon I'm guessing.

    Thought this article was peculiar!! What else is he meant to use???

    Haye: Fury’s making a mistake if he tries to use his size to beat me
    By Scott Gilfoid: David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) will likely be giving up at least 30 pounds in weight against the 6’9″ Tyson Fury, and another 7 inches in height when they fight each other this month on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in the UK. Haye doesn’t seem to mind that he’s facing a guy much bigger than him, because he feels that Fury is someone just begging to be knocked out with his straight up style of fighting and his bad habit of slugging it out with his opponents.

    Perhaps the major reason why Fury tends to slug it out so much with his opponents is because he hasn’t faced a real big puncher yet in his career like Deontay Wilder. When you’re fighting a bunch of domestic/Euro level stiffs that can’t punch their way out of a wet paper bag, of course you’re going to develop habits of slugging it out.


    The problem that Fury has is he doesn’t have the power or the chin to be facing guys with power, so his fight against Haye will have one outcome and that’s Fury getting knocked out quick. Haye knocked out Dereck Chisora in the 5th round last year, but Haye is going to do it much quicker against Fury because he doesn’t have Chisora’s chin.

    Haye said to Sky Sports “If Fury is relying on size and strength to win this fight, he’s in for a rude awakening. Fury might be taller and heavier, but that doesn’t mean he’s stronger than me. And it certainly doesn’t mean he hits harder than me…he doesn’t use his dimensions the way he probably should…he gives you loads of opportunities to bounce punches off his jaw.”

    Yeah, is right about Fury not using his size to his advantage. He tends plod his way in close to his opponents and then he tries to beat them with body shots, clubbing punches and uppercuts. It’s all very crude stuff. That approach against Haye is going to get Fury knocked out quick. This is one has 1st round knockout written all over it.

    It’s too bad Haye could fight Fury’s cousin Hughie Fury as well on the same night, because it would be interesting to have Hughie jump in the ring to fight Haye immediately after Tyson Fury gets knocked out in the 1st or the 2nd. That way boxing fans could get two for the price of one. Haye would likely knock Hughie out in the 1st round as well, but at least boxing fans would get 2 rounds of action for their money.

    It's Scott Gilfoid... what do you expect?

    The only interesting thing is that he's decided the 'hates' Fury more than Haye for this bout. Normally he 'hates' both.

    Yeah, Fury looks like he just grabbed Hayes ass in that picture.

    But don't worry you'll see him dropped

    It was a pretty lame article, kinda US tabloid trash like that sometimes.

    Scott Gilfoid makes his money (although I'm fairly certain he's actually unpaid) through trolling British boxing fans. Virtually every article is about how awful a British boxer is and how he's going to be knocked out in his next bout; Kessler, Fury, Haye and Khan are his main targets.

    I actually think he's smarter than he appears. On the face of it he's a bitter American hating on British fighters and thus successfully getting views/arguments that way but I suspect he's actually a genuine British fan... he follows the British boxers in question and their interviews incredibly closely... and he realised this was a good way to get their names out there and highlight their bouts.

    yeah, i only came across him recently when he was trying to run down froch's record which seems fcking stupid ( article had plenty of jabs at him about the ward fight also like there should be shame in losing to that guy). OT not sure if to get on haye ko rnds 1-3 at 4.5/1 or 4-6th rnd 4.33/1.

    I hope so. At very least I think both of their stock could go up from it, and it should be fun while it lasts.

    The week before it with press conferences, weigh in and interviews will be good. Both have gobs far far beyond their talent, which should be comedic gold.
