Tyson Fury has launched a withering verbal attack on rival David Haye after their British heavyweight superfight was rescheduled for February 8.
The unbeaten Morecambe giant has been made to wait for the biggest fight of his life after the former world champion pulled out of the September 28 clash at the Manchester Arena with a serious cut above his left eye sustained in his final sparring session.
The 25-year-old said: “I’m so glad to have this fight rescheduled - in my opinion, he’s a classless prima donna, a diva, a no good wannabe Bollywood actor and I can’t wait to put him in his place.
“There’s lots of honest and hard-working people in this world and I believe I’m going to punish and poleaxe this money grabbing cry baby for all of them - he’s getting knocked spark out!
“He’s getting sorted out - I already didn’t like Mr Z list celebrity, Queen of the Jungle - but actions speak louder than words don’t they.
“I’m tired of him, he said he was going to knock Klitschko out and did nothing! Now he’s giving me the same talk - why do people believe him? He can dish it out but can’t take it.
“Mr Toemaker, your excuses are boring - you say you’re going to ‘expose me’ but the difference, Mr Excusemaker, is that every time I say I’m going to go out and do something, I go out and do it and that’s exactly what I was going to do this Saturday and 100 percent going to do on February 8 - nothing has changed, I’m still going to smash your face in, no excuses.”
Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy said: “I’ve pushed for this fight to be back on and I’m delighted it is, as I know this is a fight that Tyson wins in style, by way of the big KO.
“David Haye really needs to step up as a man and make sure he’s there on February 8, otherwise he will have zero credibility and will probably have to emigrate by public demand!”
Fury is currently back at home in Morecambe spending time with his family following the postponement.
