Proving to be a pathetic coward, Tyson Fury has handcuffed David Haye with outrageous contract demands.

The 6-foot-9 Fury (21-0, 15 KOs) was tentatively slated to throw fists with the 6-foot-3, 212 pound Haye (26-2, 24 KOs) on September 28 at the Manchester Arena in North West England.

“I did everything in my power to get Fury in the ring,” tweeted Haye, 32, an arrogant and unhinged degenerate who was reinstated to compete by the WBC in August. “Even gifting him a 50/50 split. But Big Chump won't sign contract 4 the fans.”

Like a proud clowns pocket, Fury agreed with Haye’s version of events.

“Haye wants 50/50 purse,” tweeted, Fury, 24, who most recently exited the squared circle on April 20 with a seventh round knockout victory over American Steve Cunningham. “But I said only 80/20 my way because I'm what's in!”

Currently sidelined with a hand injury, 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.

Although not exactly akin to Muhammad Ali versus Joe Frazier, a bout pitting Fury against Haye would have been intriguing and potentially the biggest match on British soil in decades.

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, David Haye would have outmaneuvered Fury and scored a late stoppage this autumn in the “Rainy City.”

Sadly for boxing fans, because Tyson Fury is delusional and believes “(he’s) what’s in,” the clash now seems unlikely to occur.
