David Haye Postpones Most Anticipated Bout

Injured: Haye has been forced to pull out of his heavweight fight with Fury

After having a 'May weather fair' of a night last weekend, the boxing world had their eyes set for september 28 'Haye making' night, but British super star boxer David Haye has postponed his bout with Tyson Fury slated for next weekend after suffering a deep cut while in his training camp.

The cut above his left eyebrow needed 6 stitches,which do have to stay in place for 5-7days.

The 'Haye-Maker' stated:"Gutted isn't even the word. Mentally,I'm on the floor at the moment."

David Haye is awaiting further medical tests before setting a new date for his Manchester bout.

The former WBA heavyweight champion also pulled out of what should have been his previous fight,against Manuel Charr on June 29,because of a hand injury sustained also in training then.

Haye's last fight was a famous knockout win over fellow briton Dereck Chisora in July 2012, the all-British meeting which sparked a big brawl between the pair at a news conference in Munich, February 2012.

Hayemaker Promotions (David Haye's promoters) said that "after being properly assessed", he[David Haye] was left with no choice but to postpone the Fury fight.

"I'm devastated. I know injuries and cuts are part and parcel of our sport, but this doesn't change the feeling of disappointment and sadness I'm experiencing right now," Haye said.

"Even when everything seems to be right on track, sometimes life throws you a curveball. I will somehow have to try and make the best of this horrible situation. But, right now, I'm in bits about what has happened."

David Haye would be remembered as the boxer who had a feel of the Klitschko brother's wrath after being knocked out by present WBA world champion Vitali Klitschko.
