“I have a lot of respect for David, but he’s 40. I mean, he’s not a youngster, but he’s not 58,” Warren said. iFL TV.
“He suffered some serious injuries, especially against Tony Bellew… I’m in shock to be honest, because I fell for David Haye.
That said, he clearly had these injuries and shouldn’t have been in the ring in the first place.

“I don’t know if he’s healed or not.
“I’m sure he’s calling Tyson because he and Tyson, let’s get it right, were going to be a huge fight.
“But I think he needs to do a little more before he starts talking about Tyson Fury.
“For number 1 he should be rated, and to get a rating you have to fight against a valued fighter.”

Haye made his comeback in the ring this weekend, beating Joe Fournier on the undercard of Evander Holyfield’s defeat to Vitor Belfort in Florida.
The fight came more than three years after Haye lost to Bellew after he was knocked down by TKO in the fifth round.
But he was optimistic when he called Fury and labeled him a ‘big fat dosser’.
“I know how to beat Tyson Fury, I really do,” Haye said. ‘I’m dead serious.
Warren has also insisted that Fury and his camp are strongly focused on Anthony Joshua, not Haye
“I understand why he is so effective and no one else can see it. I’m still good enough to do it. I would have done it in 2013. He knows.’
However, Warren has indicated that Fury’s camp will look beyond Haye’s comments, with the Battle of Britain grudge match against Joshua still their priority.
“Fury and Joshua is the only fight we want to see,” he added.
“But they have to deal with what they have in front of them first, because we’ve been on this road for about a year now.”
