The trainer of British heavyweight David Haye has voiced his concerns over Tyson Fury's chances in the upcoming British domestic mega-fight on September 28.

Fury has yet to be defeated in professional boxing, but Adam Booth, Haye's primary trainer, believes he has bitten off more than he can chew in taking on the Hayemaker.

According to Sky Sports, Booth said: "I really like Tyson Fury. I think he's doing a fantastic job of selling himself. Because I love boxing, I want people other than hardcore boxing fans to want to see it.

"Guys like Tyson Fury, and David, bring those people in. It's great that everyone wants to watch this fight.

"As a fighter, over the past 12 months he's improved immensely, and he's improving very quickly. Huge kudos to his coach Peter Fury. But having said that, even with another nine weeks improvement I'm as confident as I can be that this fight isn't right for Tyson Fury at this moment in time.

"He still has a good career ahead of him, it's just that on September 28 I expect David to be the one who's holding his hand high."

Interest in the Haye vs. Fury clash has been widespread since its announcement. The pair will clash in Manchester, with the winner likely to move closer towards a title-shot at either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko, the current division champions.
