David Haye calls out Tyson Fury after comeback win over Joe Fournier, says he’s Gypsy King’s ‘kryptonite’ and WBC champion is ducking Anthony Joshua

David Haye made a successful comeback to boxing on Saturday night after defeating good friend Joe Fournier via unanimous decision.

The Hayemaker, 40, eased to victory and won all eight of the rounds. He landed a knockdown in the first, but most of the action was more closely associated with a sparring session.

After the bout, Haye called out current WBC world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury.

“There’s one fighter I would come back to professional boxing for and that’s Tyson Fury,” he said. “That big fat dosser; I know I’m his kryptonite, I know what he can’t handle.

“He’s a dosser and I know I’m his kryptonite and I know he knows it; he knows it, his dad knows it and his uncle knows it.

“My overhand right… which I didn’t even show in there tonight, I didn’t want to scare him. If I’d have let my right hand go, he wouldn’t be taking the fight.

“He thinks it would be an easy fight but [he’s] wrong. I know he’s ducking Anthony Joshua but he doesn’t want that work. We were supposed to fight in 2013 but I was injured but I’m healthy and I’m ready to go.”

Injuries weighed down the tailend of Haye’s professional career and a pair of losses to Tony Bellew signalled the end for the Brit.

However, Haye now weighs exactly the same as he did in his prime 10 years ago and says he could take more fights in the future.

But the only professional fight he wants is Fury.

The Gypsy King is set to face Deontay Wilder on October 9 to complete their trilogy over the WBC title and should he and Anthony Joshua both win in the coming month, it’s believed they could try and resurrect the undisputed title fight.

Fury has already mapped out his plan going forwards.

He believes he’ll beat Wilder, then he wants to face Dillian Whyte in December back in the UK before facing AJ twice.

Chances are, he hadn’t factored in David Haye!
