It?s still more than a month away but the forthcoming all-British heavyweight clash between David Haye and Tyson Fury appears to be gathering in importance.

With it being announced that the American TV station will be showing the fight live, its significance is also growing with Haye, hoping to knock Fury out, hoping that a victory will help him secure another fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

However, the path to such a clash might not be that easy for Haye. The Klitschko brothers seem to be handpicking their opponents recently and controlling who they step into the ring with. Also, Haye hardly covered himself in glory last time out when he claimed a toe-injury seriously hampered his performance in a fight that will never go down in the history books as being an enthralling one.

My thoughts are that although Haye is still, somehow after his period of inactivity, rated as the #1 WBA challenger he may be forced to knock aside a few other big-name fighters to actually get his mandatory defence, something Haye probably recognizes when telling the media,

?I don?t think this fight [Fury] has any bearing on whether Vitali or Wladimir want to fight me. All it will reconfirm is that I?m a big pay-per-view draw, and it means a lot of money to them. If I get in the mandatory position it helps. As long as I am fighting ranked opponents the governing bodies will recognize that.?

It can be a long way back to the top after you?ve fallen off of that title holder pedestal!

  • Haye, if he beats Fury, will get his chance simply because there’s no body out there to test the klitchko’s
