Tyson Fury believes his heart and determination will be enough to give him the edge when he fights David Haye in one of the year's most anticipated bouts in Manchester on 28 September.

Unbeaten Fury and his team have agreed terms with the former WBA heavyweight champion Haye, whose fight with Manuel Charr on 29 June was called off after the British fighter suffered a hand injury.

Haye will go into the fight as the overwhelming favourite but Fury, who beat the American Steve Cunningham in New York in April, believes he has enough spirit to see off the 32-year-old.

"I'm going to train hard and I'm hoping for a fight – I'm not hard to hit and I will stand in front of you, but I land bombs if they land," he said. "I have got 100% heart and determination that can back up what I say. Whatever he brings to the table my heart and determination can overcome and, as we know, it is a massive part in boxing."
