Tyson Fury has vowed to end David Haye's boxing career when the pair meet in one of the most eagerly anticipated domestic bouts at Manchester's MEN Arena on September 28.

Undefeated Fury exchanged a war of words with Haye when they officially announced their duel at a press conference on Thursday, and now the Manchester fighter has dismissed the former WBA champion's chances - stating Haye is just a "little girl" interested in "fame and fortune".

"I am glad this little b***h has signed the contract," Fury told Kevin Francis of The Daily Star. "He is a little tart and I am surprised he has agreed to the fight.

"He is nothing but a little girl who is interested in fame and fortune. I don't give a s**t about celebrity lifestyle but he does. I'm just interested in fighting.

"There will be nowhere left for him to go. He will be finished. This could well be David Haye's last fight and one of many more for Tyson Fury as I head for the world title.

"He has got other revenues to keep earning a living, he is a good-looking guy and can talk but I don't think he will be boxing any more after this. If he loses, who is he going to fight? The Klitshcko brothers don't want to fight him and he is not going to fight any other domestic guys."

The 25-year-old is well known for his outspoken mentalit, particularly over social networking site Twitter, but Haye is adamant Fury's actions are simply a charade and he will have no problem in flooring his fellow heavyweight to the canvas - and even compared his rival to a hoover.

"He's going to end up eating canvas dust. He will be like a Dyson Furry, sucking up the canvas dust," Haye said. "I am not joking. If he leaves himself open I will get him. I am confident I will finish this fight off when I want to.

"I was looking at his hands and his body language during the whole thing. His palms were sweaty and he was moving and fidgeting. He just looked nervous, and when people are nervous they do strange things. His thing is just babble-minded nonsense."
