David Haye believes he would’ve beaten Tyson Fury

It’s one of those things that… we will never know. But according to former two-division world champion David Haye, he would’ve beaten the current WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury.

The two Brits were on the verge of facing each other in 2013, but Haye sustained an injury a few days before the bout and it got waved off.

Even though Fury was 24 and Haye was 32, “The Gypsy King” would’ve had the height and reach advantage as usual.

Still, Haye thinks at the end that wouldn’t be the factor that decides the winner.

“Using my speed, using my punch power,” Haye said when asked how he would beat Fury.

“Back then in 2013, I believe it was, Tyson Fury wasn’t the fighter he is today. He was very young, he was very inexperienced. He wasn’t as teak-tough as he is now.

“He hadn’t been through the trials and tribulations that’s made him the man and fighter he is today. It would have been the perfect bit of matchmaking on my fight if I was able to get him. He was a baby, in boxing terms,” Haye explained.

“He had been heavily knocked down by a non-punching cruiserweight in Steve Cunningham, so it was a perfect storm for me, but the fight didn’t happen. I got a cut before the fight and it never took place.”
