David Haye and Tyson Fury have rescheduled their heavyweight clash for February 8.

The two camps have been locked in talks since Haye was forced to pull out of Saturday’s original date at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena after suffering a cut in sparring.

Former WBA heavyweight king Haye said: “News of the date in February is music to my ears.
“I was absolutely devastated this weekend, and felt as though I’d let a lot of people down. But now, with this new date, I couldn’t be happier.

“My fans will still get the chance to see what they all wanted to see this weekend – they’ll get to see Tyson Fury sparked out in a spectacular fashion.”

Fury was unimpressed with Haye for withdrawing at just a week’s notice and has branded the ex-WBA heavyweight king the “excuse maker”, claiming he is scared to fight him.

Haye rejected his taunts and defended his decision to spar eight days before the fight.
“Sparring eight days before a fight is nothing new or unusual,” he said. “I’ve done this before fights in the past and never had an issue.” – Mirror
