David Haye insists that his biggest disappointment is not being able to put the Tyson Fury chapter behind him.
Haye spoke to Ringside in depth for the first time since he had to withdraw from the huge British fight due to a cut sustained in sparring last week.
The former heavyweight world champion was due to face the unbeaten Fury in Manchester this Saturday.
Some rumours in the sport have suggested that Haye inflicted the cut deliberately but the London-based fighter has laughed off any suggestions.
Since the postponement both camps have been able to agree a new date, with February 8 penned into the diary, and Haye admits he is looking forward to ending the Fury saga once and for all in the new year.
“That’s the only thing that has put a little smile on my face – the fact that I’ve got a solid date,” he told Ringside.
“It’s really annoying because I didn’t anticipate to think about Tyson Fury over Christmas, New Year or even 2014. The whole Tyson Fury chapter was going to be closed, well and truly on Saturday night, about a round-and-a-half into the fight.
“The Tyson Fury hype was going to be completely finished and we’d never really had spoken of him again.
“But now we’ve got to listen to this idiot, the guy continuously rant on with his stupid comments. I’ll try not to let him ruin my Christmas!”
