Haye ex­pects Wilder to have too much for Fury in Los An­ge­les

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

David Haye says he is “lean­ing pretty heav­ily” to­wards Deon­tay Wilder beat­ing Tyson Fury in their heavy­weight show­down tonight. British chal­lenger Fury faces Wilder at Los An­ge­les’ Sta­ples Cen­ter, with the WBC world heavy­weight ti­tle on the line.

Fury fights his most ex­plo­sive op­po­nent just 14 rounds into a come­back that fol­lows an ab­sence of more than two-and-a-half years, and he also rep­re­sents Wilder’s most dif­fi­cult chal­lenger.

But for­mer world cham­pion Haye is pre­dict­ing a stop­page vic­tory for the Amer­i­can.

“This is the most ex­cited I have been about a fight since An­thony Joshua ver­sus Wladimir Kl­itschko in 2017, and I be­lieve it’s the most im­por­tant one since that Wem­b­ley show­down,” said Haye.
