Fury gives go ahead for Haye bout

Tyson Fury has confirmed all contracts have been signed for his rearranged February 8 fight with David Haye.

Fury took to social networking site Twitter in order to reveal the news and, once again, did not hold back on making his feelings known about his opponent.

The original bout, scheduled for September 28 in Manchester, had to be postponed when Haye pulled out after suffering a cut in sparring.

Angry at his fellow Brit's decision to withdraw, Fury stated in September that he would not sign a contract for a rescheduled bout until he was assured Haye would not pull out for a second time.

The pair have long been involved in a heated war of words, while Tyson's uncle and trainer Peter Fury even accused Haye of ducking the heavyweight fight in order to set up a clash with Vitali Klitschko.
