Pic: The eye cut that has seen the David Haye and Tyson Fury fight cancelled
The heavyweight clash between David Haye and Tyson Fury has been cancelled after Haye suffered a serious eye cut in training.
The pair were due to meet next Saturday but it has now been postponed after Haye suffered the injury during his last sparring outing before the bout.
“Mentally, I'm on the floor at the moment. I'm devastated most of all for my loyal fans, my family and my team, as well as Tyson Fury and his team,” Haye said in his statement.
“To everyone who has bought tickets, booked hotels, and followed this fight since it was announced, there is absolutely nothing I can do except apologise from the very bottom of my heart.”
