David Haye was pencilled in to fight Tyson Fury twice, once in 2013 and once in 2014, but Haye pulled out on both occasions. Since this occurrence, Haye has backed against Fury in almost every fight since, and he did so most recently when Fury faced Dillian Whyte in April this year.
Speaking with IntuBoxing's Matt Lenihan, John Fury was in high spirits all week ahead of his son's fight with Whyte in April, but admitted he wasn't best pleased with Haye once again betting against his son: "I don't want to even mention that man's name.
"He's an idiot, I don't want to speak to him, got no respect for him at all, like he hates me, he hates the family, p*ss off, well f**k off, that's a better word, isn't it?"
Fury's son Tyson yet again proved Haye wrong on this night, as Whyte was stopped in six rounds at the hands of Fury. The full interview, which also sees Fury talk about Whyte's brother, Dean as they shared a shadow spar the day before, can be watched below.
