Whilst at a family wedding yesterday (Saturday) news broke that the Haye v Fury fight had been called off.

Haye, in the final stages of sparing, had suffered a horrendous cut, over his eye, required the insertion of six stitches.

At first my feelings were of annoyance that a huge fight in the British Boxing calendar has been postponed, but, hopefully, it can be re-arranged.

David Haye, knowing another fight had slipped by the way-side due to injury had a few words for his fans words that summed up his feelings about the short-notice postponement, commenting,

?Mentally, I?m on the floor, I?m devastated most of all for my loyal fans, my family and my team, as well as Tyson Fury and his team.?

?I know injuries and cuts are part and parcel of our sport, but this doesn?t change the feeling of disappointment and sadness I?m experiencing right now.?

?To everyone who has bought tickets, booked hotels, and followed this fight since it was announced, there is absolutely nothing I can do except apologise from eh very bottom of my heart.?

?Even when everything seems to be right on track, sometimes life throws you a curve ball.?

?I will somehow have to try and make the best of this horrible situation. But right now, I?m in bits about what has happened.?


You have to feel for Haye, after coming out of retirement his comeback has been painfully slow, what with the Manuel Charr fight also called off due to injury, and now this, you have to wonder if somebody is trying to tell Haye something!
