Haye vs Fury new date confirmed as Saturday 08 February 2014
Former WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye will now face unbeaten Tyson Fury on Saturday 08 February 2014 at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena, following the postponement of their original date in September.
Tickets from the original Saturday 28 September clash remain valid for the new date. Refunds are available from point of purchase, before 31 October.
The outspoken heavyweight pair were scheduled to box at the Manchester venue in what was billed as the British fight of the year but a cut to Haye’s left eye, picked up in sparring last Friday, scuppered the fight and the entire event.
Nevertheless, after working hard to secure a second date, Hayemaker Boxing and Hennessy Sports are delighted to have been able to reschedule the highly-anticipated encounter and give the fans what they want – and deserve.
“News of the date in February is music to my ears,” said Haye. “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.”
“The cut will heal, the fight will happen next year, and the fans will go home happy. The only difference now is that Tyson Fury gets an even nastier beat-down than he would have received first time round.
“Once again, I’d like to apologise to the fans for the inconvenience caused by the postponement, and also because they will now have to endure a few more months of rubbish spewing from the mouth of Tyson Fury. I had hoped to silence him for good on Saturday night.”
Please note, tickets for the Friday 27 September weigh-in will not be valid for any re-scheduled weigh-in.
