The British heavyweight is due to face Francesco Pianeta in Belfast for his second comeback fight

Tyson Fury is only returning to boxing after missing out on several lucrative paydays.

That’s according to former foe David Haye, who has been watching the 30-year-old’s return to the ring with great interest.

Fury will face Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on Saturday night in his second comeback fight since acrimoniously leaving the sport altogether.

With a potential clash with Deontay Wilder lined up for later this year, the brash Brit could be just two fights away from becoming heavyweight champion of the world again.

But Haye, who was due to fight the 6ft 9ins giant on two separate occasions, believes there may be ulterior motives operating.

He exclusively told the Daily Star: “He’s looking healthy, he’s looking like he wants to make a comeback, he’s making all the right noises.

“But we’ll find out just how good he’s got.

“I’ve got a sneaky suspicion he realises that he missed out.

“He probably missed out on about £30million or £40million during his little sabbatical.”

However, Haye went on to say he believes the former heavyweight champ deserves to be back amongst the elite heavyweights.

“He won’t want to be missing out on any more of those zeros because he deserves some,” he added.

“He’s a big character, everyone knows his name and he’s a very good fighter.

“I hope he can get back to his former glory.”
