Against Tyson Fury (height 6 ft 9, weight at last fight 18 st 2 lb / 216 cm, 115.2 kg), Haye would be giving up ~ 6 inches in height, about 2 stone in weight and 7 inches in reach. And it’s not like Fury is Prince Charming****, so again why it Haye playing the antagonist?
Haye is not Money Mayweather. The reason that Mayweather has to be the bad guy is because he is that much better than everyone else in the division. Mayweather being the bad guy gives people a reason to watch his next match, because while, logically, we know that the next schmuck stands the same tiny chance of victory as the last schmuck, maybe, just maybe this will be the guy that shuts Mayweather up. That’s how Mayweather makes his money.
Haye isn’t the best guy in the division, he isn’t unstoppable, so I don’t see why he’s going down that route, unless it’s that he’s incapable of being polite for 10 minutes in front of camera.
All that being said, if Haye can get to the end of the twelfth, I suspect he’ll win the fight just because he is a better boxer, technically, than Fury.
*** yes, I know.
**** Fury does have the advantage of occasionally being on free tv being the lovely, supportive older cousin to Hughie Fury.
