David Haye has said he has agreed to fight Tyson Fury on September 28 in what promises to be a thrilling British heavyweight clash.

Rumours have been circling in the boxing world for many weeks as to whether or not the two trash-talkers would finally sign the papers and meet in the ring.

Talk of the fight had gone quiet but Haye took to Instagram to show him signing the contract, and he has challenged Fury to take the fight instead of tackling Tony Thompson instead.

Haye, a former dual-weight world champion, will return to the ring – if the fight goes ahead – for the first time since July last year. Haye beat Dereck Chisora but he had to pull out of a fight with Manuel Charr last month because of an injury to his hand.

The London-based fighter is still looking for another world title fight against either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko, but a bout with Fury could see the winner get a shot at the title.

Fury has been asking for the fight with Haye since knocking out Steve Cunningham and Haye took to his Instagram account to call out the Manchester-based fighter.

He wrote: “I’ve just signed to fight Fury on Sep 28, let’s hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn’t keep delaying. Word around camp fire is Fury is looking to duck me and fight Tony ‘The Tiger’. Let’s hope they are just rumours …”
