Tyson Fury is aiming to end the boxing career of David Haye by defeating him in their heavyweight fight on 28th September.
The pair face each other in a grudge match at the Manchester Arena in a few months time, with both fighters involved in a war of words as the build up continues.
While victory for the winner will move them closer to a title fight against Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko, the loser will fall further down the rankings - something that Fury is using to gain extra motivation.
"After I have sorted him out in the ring, there will be nowhere left for him to go - he will be finished," Fury told the Daily Star.
"This could well be Haye's last fight, believe me. But it will be one of many more for Tyson Fury as I head for the world title."
Despite the confident words, Fury faces a tough task to defeat Haye, who has previous victories in world title fights at both heavyweight and cruiserweight.
With 26 wins in 28 professional fights, Haye posses arguably the biggest challenge Fury has faced in his career, with the former heavyweight champion looking to add to his impressive record of 24 knockouts.
But Fury feels September's fight will ultimately prove to be a stepping stone for him as he looks for a shot at the world title.
"After I've won this fight, I'll be looking to get a world title shot with Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko, and that's why I'm taking this fight," explained Fury.
"It's a fight for the fans and it gets me closer to fighting a big guy, getting used to having a big guy all over me, so that when it comes to fighting Vitali or Wladimir, it is not going to be a stress."
A win for Haye could provide him with the chance to avenge his defeat to Wladimir in 2011, but Fury is aiming to shatters these dreams once and for all.
