Tyson Fury’s promoters have vowed to do all they can to reschedule the Morecambe man’s British heavyweight superfight with David Haye.

Hennessy Sports also revealed the unbeaten giant was even willing to face American knockout artist Deontay Wilder on the September 28 date he had been scheduled to face Haye, before the former two-weight world champion pulled out with a cut above his left eye.

Mick Hennessy said: “We only found out about this situation around midday on Saturday morning, only about half an hour before Hayemaker sent out their official release announcing it.

“Since then we have been working around the clock with Team Fury, Hayemaker and Sky in an attempt to resolve the situation and reschedule a new date as quickly as possible.

“We have looked into a number of possibilities and have been left very frustrated as due to these circumstances beyond our control, there is nothing that can be done to salvage the 28th, but this is a super-fight that the fans deserve to see and Tyson is eager to deliver for them.

“To be fair to Tyson as well, he has done everything in his power to keep this date alive for the fans, even agreeing to fight Deontay Wilder on the 28th (if Team Wilder agreed), but this fight at short notice was obviously not considered to be box office.

“For the fans that want refunds on their tickets rather than wait for a rescheduled date, please contact the point of purchase for a refund.

“We are very disappointed and can imagine how you are all feeling about this as fans and hopefully we will be able to announce further information as soon as possible.”
