Today we get one step closer to the all british showdown that has been on all fight fans lips for a few weeks now, David Haye announced today that he has put pen to paper and signed to fight fellow British heavyweight Tyson Fury on September 28th at in Manchester. Its a fight that has been on and off now for a while, with both men sharing words online over twitter, and both camps undecided on what the opposing camp is doing. Peter Fury confirmed last week that he offered the Haye camp a 50/50 split which Adam Booth accepted, but Haye declined.
It seemed that it was David Haye that was the missing link to making this fight happen, but that has now all changed as its the former champion that has got the ball rolling with his signature on the contract. He later stated that he heard rumours Fury was looking to duck this fight and go after American Tony Thompson who picked up a win over David Price this past Saturday night. Haye said that he hopes these rumours are not true, and I think British Boxing fans are in agreement. The ball seems very much in Furys court, has Haye called his bluff, or will Fury back up his comments and twitter rants by also signing the contract.
