Former WBA heavyweight champion of the world David "Hayemaker" Haye has promised to stop Tyson Fury within two rounds of their heavyweight dust-up next week.
According to ESPN the man from Bermondsey had this to say: "Tyson Fury, if he somehow manages to get through the first round, he's getting knocked out in the second round.
"Rarely do I make predictions this far out from a fight, I usually wait until the day of the fight or the weigh-in, until I look in their eyes, but I just can't see Tyson Fury going into the third round, he's getting knocked out pretty fast.
"I can't wait to get in there and rip this poor young lad's head off. Tyson Fury is going to be in a world of trouble."
Haye has also gone on record as saying that any of his sparring partners in his current camp would beat Fury also.
The 32-year-old has had top class sparring partners for this camp with the likes of unbeaten American Heavyweight Deontay Wilder, who has 29 wins from 29 fights all of which have come via KO.
Other sparring partners for this camp are Alexander Dimitrenko, Mariusz Wach - who was last seen facing Wladimir Klitschko - and young British hope Richard Towers.
Speaking to Sky Sports the Hayemaker said; "I have no doubt whatsoever that the guys brought over for me to spar would do a number on Fury in a fight.
"That's what has made this camp so great. Rather than bringing over the typical sparring partners, guys used to just taking punishment, I have brought over a load of top-10 heavyweights, some of them unbeaten, with lots of ambition and pride.
"I have also brought over big, big punchers.
"Wilder punches about as hard as anybody in the division right now, and he'd be nailed-on to spark Fury in a fight," continued Haye. "One shot from Deontay would do the trick.
"Wach is one of the toughest men I've ever shared a ring with. You couldn't even budge him with a baseball bat. Some nights I've wanted to try.
"Dimitrenko is a better schooled version of Fury, and Towers has been great for me, because he brings a lot of unorthodox moves to the table and has a long, fast and accurate jab.
"Each of them would make Fury look silly in a fight. Wilder would spark him, Wach would maul him from pillar to post, and Towers and Dimitrenko would outbox him round after round.
"Now imagine what I'm going to do with him."
David certainly seems in confident mood ahead of the big showdown and I'm certain Fury will have something to say regarding Haye's bold predictions in the coming days.
The highly anticipated matchup between Haye and Fury can be seen live on Sky Sports Box Office on 28th September from the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester.
