Haye vs Fury could be set for September

A big British heavyweight showdown between David Haye (26-2) and Tyson Fury (21-0) looks very likely to happen in September.

Fury has been unable to negotiate a deal to fight the ubeaten Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, which was set down as a final eliminator for the IBF crown currently held by Wladimir Klitschko. Haye was set to face Manuel Charr in June, but withdrew with a left hand injury.

Due to all this, the pair could now meet in what would be a mega domestic clash.

Fury brings alot to the table considering that he's undefeated, is highly rated by all the sanctioning bodies and his extremely controversial, therefore a fight with former WBA champion Haye is likely to bring in a large amount of revenue.

The big obstacle is the television deal, Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy has a deal with channel 5, while Haye is now signed to Eddie Hearn, who has an exclusive deal with Sky Sports.

This fight is set up nicely, it's a perfect fight for Haye to come back to because if he's able to beat Fury, it then puts him right back up there with the elite of the division. Haye's already proven that inactivity doesn't faze him as he was able to knock out Dereck Chisora after a year long lay off.  Fury does have youth on his side and has battled through adversities in the past, so even if Haye knocks Fury down, don't be too surprised if he gets up and fights back.
