David Haye has tweeted that his highly anticipated fight with fellow Brit Tyson Fury is set to be rescheduled.
The Hayemaker, who was forced to withdraw from the bout that was set to take place this Saturday night at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, after suffering a cut above his left eye, posted this tweet on Monday evening:
Things are finally now looking up, as a rescheduled date for me to beat up Dyson Furry is very close to being officially made. :-)
There were fears that the bout may not go ahead at all following Haye's withdrawal from the fight.
Tyson Fury's trainer and uncle, Peter Fury, was less than optimistic concerning the possibility of a re-scheduling when first asked.
"We move on from Haye now and look to better things," Fury said.
"This has put a bad taste in our mouths so we're moving on and the fight will not be rearranged on our side."
Thankfully though common sense seems to have prevailed, and the Daily Mail claim that the fight is set to be rescheduled for late January or early February.
It is a shame that the fight will not take place this Saturday following Haye's withdrawal, but the noise coming from Haye's camp has to be seen as a positive result, as this is a fight that has captured the imagination of many, both in Britain and around the world.
Hopefully once a date is officially announced for the rescheduling of the bout, we can move on and get Britain's top two heavyweights in a ring together and determine who is the better boxer after all.
