Although incredibly biased, Adam Booth said Saturday that David Haye is too seasoned and “isn't right for Tyson Fury” at this point in the youngster’s career.
The 6-foot-9, 257 pound Fury (21-0, 15 KOs) will throw fists with the 32-year-old Haye (26-2, 24 KOs) on September 28 at the Manchester Arena in North West England.
"I really like Tyson Fury. I think he's doing a fantastic job of selling himself," Booth, Haye’s trainer, told Sky Sports News. "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. 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.”
An arrogant loudmouth who was reinstated to compete by the WBC in August, the 6-foot-3, 212 pound Haye returned from “retirement” in July 2012 and earned an exciting fifth round TKO triumph over Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora.
Prior to tussling with Chisora (15-4, 9 KOs), the brash bloke hadn’t fought since a pathetically pink showing against Wladimir Klitschko in July 2011.
Conversely, the 25-year-old Fury most recently exited the squared circle on April 20 with a seventh round knockout victory over American Steve Cunningham.
In comparison to other pugilists in the substandard heavyweight division, the two Brits have some talent and are exciting to watch perform.
Ultimately, in a seesaw and rugged battle, expect David Haye “to be the one who's holding his hand high” over Tyson Fury this autumn in the “Rainy City.”
