Two weeks from now we'll be sitting on our sofas, drinking in the pubs or maybe at ringside for the David Haye vs Tyson Fury fight. Two of British boxing's best in the business, but out of these two incredible fighters...who really needs the win more?
Haye, the 32-year-old from Bermondsey in south London stands at a daunting six foot three inches tall, and is about to embark on the most difficult fight of his life, as to be honest, this fight makes or breaks his career as a loss would mean a fight with a Klitschko is most likely to never happen. One man can only ever get so many opportunities, which is why Haye will feel that he cannot lose, can not!
But, Fury is certainly not a pushover, he makes Haye look small standing tall at six foot nine, and is really at the prime of his career. It makes you think how do you stop a giant at his peak? A giant that knows a win would lead to a massive fight against top title competition, and maybe even a chance to do what Haye couldn't, beat a Klitschko. It's important Fury doesn't look too far ahead, and can realise the tough fight that awaits him in two weeks time versus Haye.
It's bold from Haye to fight Fury in his hometown of Manchester, but if anyone is good at playing to a crowd its has to be Haye. His persona in the ring is frightening to come up against due to his no fear attitude and his ability to talk a fight... but so can Fury, as seen in the press conferences Fury has silenced Haye. When was the last time anyone has done that to Haye. Never.
If anyone can slay this six foot nine inch beast then it will be Haye. He needs it more, he wants it more, and as proven with his previous title win against Nikolai Valuev, height isn't much of an issue. Whether Haye can knock him out is a different story. But, I see Haye winning this one and finally getting his awaited match with a Klitschko.
