And there’s the rub. Although he talks of respecting Fury, the Bermondsey big-hitter clearly believes he is on a different talent level to his opponent. While Haye is the pre-fight favourite, however, there are many in the boxing industry picking Fury – and several who think that there are as many question marks over the 32-year-old Haye as there are over the less experienced, 25-year-old Fury. One worry is that Haye has fought just twice in almost three years – most recently in July 2012, when he stopped Dereck Chisora at Upton Park.
“Every time I’ve got back into the ring for sparring for the last five years, it’s been after a big, long layoff,” explains Haye. “So you always think: ‘Is it still gonna be there? Am I going to get old overnight?’ A year is a long time in boxing. Most fighters have two or three fights in a year, and I’ve had none.”
