Tyson Fury teases he could fight David Haye next in long-awaited showdown

Boxing never got to see David Haye versus Tyson Fury, but the Gypsy King isn’t concerned about rubbing salt in the wounds of disappointed fight fans.

Haye and Fury were twice scheduled to fight each other and the Hayemaker twice suffered an injury, before his rival eventually moved onto other opponents.

The heavyweight pair were reunited at the O2 Arena on BT Sport’s coverage of Daniel Dubois vs Nathan Gorman, and Fury joked his next opponent could well be his old rival.

He said: ‘Who knows who the opponent might be in October? Maybe David Haye’s gonna make a comeback.

‘He’s looking slim, he’s looking in great shape. He’s still good looking, he’s still got it.’

The Hayemaker shook his head at Fury’s suggestion, after retiring last summer from pro boxing.

Haye hung up his gloves after back-to-back losses to Tony Bellew, while Fury is preparing for his second clash with Deontay Wilder.

Team Fury is still searching for a suitable opponent for his next fight, with the 30-year-old set to return to action in October in another tune-up fight.

Wilder and Fury are aiming for a 22 February fight date, as long as both heavyweights come through their next bouts as the winners and uninjured.

The Bronze Bomber defends his WBC title against Luis Ortiz in September and Fury is tipped to fight the week after Wilder’s bout in New York.
