David Haye reveals that fellow British heavyweight Tyson Fury has turned down an opportunity to fight him later in the year.

British heavyweight David Haye has revealed that he will not be fighting Tyson Fury later in 2013.

Fury had claimed that he would end Haye's career should the two meet in the ring, which prompted the 32-year-old to propose a bout between the two Brits.

However, after Haye's trainer attempted to open negotiations with Fury's promoter, Mick Hennessy, he was quickly rejected.

Haye told ESPN: "Adam contacted Mick Hennessy and proposed the fight. They flat out said 'no'.

"Hopefully he keeps winning because he looked pretty shaky in his last fight."

The two-weight world champion will make his comeback to the sport in a bout with Manuel Charr on June 29.
