David Haye has picked the wrong comeback opponent in Dereck Chisora as he bids to restore his battered reputation, according to former British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Haye will face Chisora at Upton Park on July 14 in his first appearance since a comprehensive points loss to Wladimir Klitschko last year, after which he blamed an injured little toe for his underwhelming performance.

He retired from boxing four months later, but will now return in order to settle a score with Dereck Chisora, who he battled in a press-conference brawl in Munich during February.

Fury has first-hand experience of facing Chisora in the ring, having beaten him on points in 2011 - although Chisora's motivation for that bout has been questioned, given that he weighed in significantly heavier than he usually does.

And Fury has warned Haye that he is in for a tough evening in East London. "The reason that David Haye is coming back is to prove he's a man," Fury told BoxRec News. "To prove he has a pair of what's down there. He wasn't a man against Klitschko.

"And because he needs to prove he's a man, he's going to have to get involved in a tear up with Dereck Chisora. Getting involved with Dereck Chisora is the wrong thing to do - and Haye will lose."
