Fury thinks Haye always had Vitali in his mind

Peter Fury, the uncle and trainer of English Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has slammed former World Boxing Association or the WBA Heavyweight Championship holder David Haye of intentionally ducking out of a fight against his protégé at the end of last month because he is lining up a fight against the Ukrainian boxing legend Vitali Klitschko.

It was just last month that the veteran Ukrainian and the World Boxing Council or the WBC Heavyweight Championship holder admitted that he would love to end his career with a fight against the English boxer who was forced into retirement when he lost his bout against the younger Klitschko brother, Wladimir, with the other four World Heavyweight Championship straps on the line back in 2011.

And Peter Fury made the suggestion to Unibet that the sparring partners Haye had brought in apparently to train for the fight against Tyson hinted that he had one eye on that Vitali Klitschko fight and not on his protégé. Haye brought in the undefeated American boxer Deontay Wilder and Polish fighter Mariusz Wach, who suffered a defeat at the hands of Wladimir last year on points as well as Richard Towers from Sheffield and Alexander Dimitrenko from Ukraine.

The fight is now scheduled to tentatively take place in February but according to Peter, there is still a 50/50 chance that the fight might not take place. He ventured the question whether David Haye was planning to go for the Vitali fight all along before going to mention one just has to look at how he has always wanted to fight Vitali since his defeat to Wladimir and it was also a coincidence that the Ukrainian also expressed his interest to take on the Englishman in his last fight.

Whether Peter is right is something time will tell us, however.
