Tyson Fury appeared to be flawless in his last fight as he took out the unbeaten Deontay Wilder with a vicious stoppage for the WBC title. However, former world champion David Haye didn’t seem impressed. Instead, he claimed to have found loopholes in Fury’s games, which Anthony Joshua can rightly explore in a possible showdown.

Fury had unleashed a lopsided dominance in his rematch against Wilder. He outworked his rival from the very beginning and claimed the win in the seventh round via TKO. But Haye did not think so.

‘The Hayemaker’ connected with Belfast Telegraph and shed opinion on several issues, including Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua. Meanwhile, he looked back at Fury vs Wilder 2 to make some surprising statements.

“What Fury did against Deontay Wilder in his last fight sounded like suicide on paper, but it was genius. Tactically I believed he had got it totally wrong, but it was proven right. But if you look at some of his prior fights, I wouldn’t say his tactics were that good,” said David Haye.

Well, this isn’t the first time Haye has lashed at Tyson Fury. In several prior interviews, the two-division champion had conveyed the same.

In the past, Haye had several heated arguments with Fury’s father John Fury. So, it wasn’t surprising for the boxing world to see him demean Tyson Fury once again.

Per reports, Fury vs Joshua is once again in serious jeopardy. After an official confirmation from ‘The Gypsy King’ on facing ‘AJ’, Deontay Wilder has subtly entered the ride. He has won his trilogy arbitration case and has been mandated the third shot at Tyson Fury.

So, either Fury will have to finish off the rivalry with Deontay Wilder, or the promoters need to pay off and clear the path. As of now, the heavyweight title ride is up on the air, with no official confirmations on board.

At this stage, Fury vs Joshua makes the most sense and has fans’ assertion over it. But former WBC champion Deontay Wilder also needs an official confirmation, regarding his title shot. So, the game is left on to the promoter’s corner and the ball can roll into several places.
