    Em - the Haye that was already shot and injured to bits that got bossed by Bellew twice?
    :risas3::risas3::risas3:

    Plus Haye doesn't exactly have a similar style to Usyk to help Fury prepare - there are none that have really.

    Haye was athletic and always mostly looking for a home for his explosive right hand and relied on twitch reflexes and his power.

    Can only imagine how much worse he is now years removed from the Bellew fights!

    Exactly

    Performing a 1 round demolishion job ona cruiserweight to hype up the Usyk fight.

    Plus it should have happened a long time ago and this would finally put it to rest

    Parker and Sanchez are free, he could fight either.

    But there's no one out there he could really fight to prepare for Usyk really.

    Closest would be hunter maybe but he's fighting Hughie.

    It would be a waste of Fury’s time. Haye does not deserve a Fury payday and he is simply not worthy to share the same ring as The Gypsy King.

    Fury v Haye
    AJ v Usyk

    Winners fight each other

    Winners of that earn the right to have a final show down with Julius Francis

    Haye doesn’t deserve the fight or the payday.

    Haye got wrecked by Bellew, he will be clowned vs Fury.

    Fury should fight Sanchez or maybe the winner of Ruiz/Ortiz.

    Shannon Briggs at 50 years old has more to offer competitively than David Haye at this point in his career.
