I've found myself getting quite excited about this boxing match for some reason.

I used to find Haye really irritating, but seeing him on I'm a celebrity, I believe the public got to know him as a person more, rather than the 'show' within boxing.

I like him actually, but still wondering how he is going to fair against Fury, who seems like a massive lump (well is a massive lump).

The interviews and twitter abuse from Fury is quite amusing, but it seems he is doing more of the trash talking rather than Haye.

But, the biggest thing I'm excited about is a british heavyweight fight, which hasn't happened for a long long time - who do you reckon will win?

I'd like to see Haye win, personally, but I simply haven't seen anything of Fury before, so I'm not sure who will come out on top.

For me I can only see Haye win this one. Fury for all his trash talk is no more than a punch bag for the likes of Haye. Now don't get me wrong Haye is limited due to his weight and size when it comes to the big boys but he should have no real problems with Fury. I will stick my neck out and say it will be over before the fifth.:whistle:

I think Haye, providing he has prepared correctly etc, should outclass Fury and pick up the win. I like Fury and he will provide his fair share of entertainment beforehand and bring a good fight but Haye for me.

Haye by ko. If Steve Cunningham (one of Fury's sparring partners now) managed to floor him when they fought then Haye with his explosive speed surely can. Difference is I don't think Fury will beat the count this time.

I don't like it but I can see why Sky made this Box Office. Interesting fight.

Haye is in my top 5 most hated sportsmen. He's a mouthy idiot who only gets in the ring once in a blue moon. He promotes fights that are complete duds, like against Harrison, ripping the public off and doing idiotic things like attending Chisora's press conference despite the fact that he had "retired" at the time.

In Fury he has finally found someone with a bigger mouth so he can be quieter. At least Fury is occasionally funny.

I'd love for Fury to win but he has been knocked down on several occasions by boxers who aren't big punchers and lack a finishing instinct. Haye will knock him out within 5 rounds..

Sad that we get excited about duds fights like this that are heavily promoted rather than Mayweather against Canelo.

I know they're not British but it will be a much more competitive match and between two boxers that have the skills to back themselves up.

Cannot wait for that fight!!! Alarm set for early Sunday morning methinks!

As for Haye v Fury, interesting match-up I think, Fury has definitely bulked up and looks in his best shape yet (not saying much lol) It might be alot closer than people think, still expect Haye to have too much for him in the end though.

Agree, but 3/4am fight just isn't possible for me to watch. Plus, I'm not that fussed about what other fighters do or are, I'd love to get some great british boxers fighting it out on a saturday night again.

Bruno/Lewis/Benn/Eubanks all awesome fights that I was allowed to watch as a kid.

There's still a lot of good british boxing on TV, it's usually the undercard and often lower weights than HW but well worth watching.

I want Haye to win this one. I find Fury amusing but he's a bit embarrassing at times.

I'm glad Tyson has got his payday, seriously doubt he'll last longer than 6 rounds. I can see Fury taking a couple of 8 counts until the ref stops the fight so Haye by TKO. I'd like Fury to win though, underdog and all that.

and Garcia v Matysse on the undercard!
Be surprised if that goes half distance, both are hard punchers but Matthysse has concrete blocks for fists. Lara and Trout was supposed to be on the undercard too, but that one got pulled.

Hughie Fury is fighting Saturday night as well, on channel 5.

Fury has no finesse, all brawn. Haye will pick him apart I think, decision win.

To be honest I'll watch it but don't think it's that interesting a match. Much like Haye v Harrison/Chisora/Valuev/Ruiz we get excited by the press conference but the match is a mismatch.

Haye will beat Fury then demand a match with one of the Klitschko's. Whichever Klitschko will then beat him comfortably and we'll hear another pathetic excuse by Haye.

Boxing fans really need to start judging matchups properly rather than getting excited by hype.
