Is Haye the Favourite?

28th September 2013 is a date that値l be put in the diary of all Boxing fans.

The much anticipated clash between the unbeaten Tyson Fury and the former heavyweight champion of the world David Haye, is a fight that will grip the nation.

Viewing figures, although there痴 every chance it値l be on a pay-per-view channel, will be very healthy as people tune in to see who値l emerge as the victor.

Will Fury be able to live up to the boasts that seem to precede all of his fights or will Haye ease past the young pretender to move closer to a date with one of the Klitschko brothers?

Martin Rogan, an Irish heavyweight who enjoyed a fleeting spell in the spotlight after winning one of Sky Sports highly enjoyable Prizefighters, is under no illusion that Haye will emerge as the victor remarking to the media in Northern Ireland,

的 think Haye will destroy him. David will not be scared of Tyson and if I was Tyson I壇 be wary of Haye..he can bang.

That痴 certainly true, but Tyson will be keen to take this chance, a chance that will catapult him onto the world stage, he値l also be aware that Haye was caught when boxing as a cruiserweight.

However, Haye, having taken apart Audley Harrison, John Ruiz and most recently Dereck Chisora, many are predicting that the London boxer will, just like Steve Cunningham did in Tyson痴 last fight and put him on the seat of his pants, but permanently.

In the coming weeks, the expectation levels will rise, Tyson will try to unsettle Haye with his bold boasts, predictions will be forthcoming and the press will do their job in selling a fight that really doesn稚 need selling.

At this early stage I知 inclined to agree with Martin Rogan, Haye痴 experience at a higher level will prove crucial and it could be a fight that last no more than 3 rounds, although we all know nothing should ever be taken for granted when it comes to the heavyweight scene.
