Tyson Fury and David Haye’s £10 million British heavyweight superfight is on.

The blockbuster bout, at the Manchester Arena on September 28, will be officially announced at a press conference in London on Thursday.

The pair have been embroiled in a war of words for several weeks with talks between Haye’s manager Adam Booth and Fury’s trainer and uncle Peter Fury last week ironing out any issues preventing the explosive clash from taking place.

Morecambe heavyweight Fury, who boasts a perfect professional record of 21 wins with 15 coming by way of knockout, paved the way for the clash after pulling out of a potential IBF eliminator with unbeaten Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.

Haye, 32, a former WBA world heavyweight champion, was due to return to the ring in June against Manuel Charr but had to pull out with a hand injury.

His last fight was a stoppage win over Dereck Chisora back in July 2012.

Thursday’s press conference at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel starts at noon.
