David Haye says that he has agreed to fight Tyson Fury in a highly anticipated heavyweight showdown on 28 September.
The former WBA heavyweight champion has been out of action for almost 12 months since stopping Dereck Chisora inside five rounds at Upton Park and it seems his next bout could be against another domestic rival.
Both boxers have repeatedly discussed the possibility of a bout over Twitter, with Fury claiming that he would be prepared to take part in a 'winner takes all' clash with the Londoner.
Haye was said to have been unhappy with the initial terms but it seems he is now prepared to step in the ring with the outspoken Fury in order to determine who the best British heavyweight is.
I've just signed to fight Fury on Sep 28, lets hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn't… http://t.co/vD7Z191ix6

In the video Haye says: "Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, what a beautiful sunny day it is.
"I'm happy because I'm about to sign a contract to fight Tyson Fury. We've re-jigged the contract so he's nice and happy."
Haye was schedule to face Manuel Charr in June but was forced to pull out because of an injury to his left hand and it seems as though he has now decided that a clash with Fury is the best move for his career.
The 32 year old had previously stated that he would only fight one of the Klitschko brothers but is now looking to improve his rankings within the division so that he can become the mandatory challenger for the heavyweight crown.
While Haye has already mixed it with the very best in the world this would be a major step up in class for Fury who has an impressive record of 24-0.
Fury defeated Steve Cunningham in his last contest but was put down by the American. However, this has not deflated his ego and he claimed last week that he would knock out Haye if the fight ever got made.
"I tell you what's going to happen. I'm seriously going to knock David Haye out," Fury told Sky Sport.
"People have heard this talk before, but I don't say things. Like I said to Steve Cunningham, I'm going to knock you spark out, you're a cruiserweight. Dave Haye is only a cruiserweight. I'm going to knock him dead spark out. Not even a contest."
