David Haye mocked for ‘dressing gown’ suit on BT Sport coverage of Fury vs Wilder 2 as fans go wild on social media

DAVID HAYE was praised for wearing a “dressing gown in a show of solidarity” for British fight fans staying awake to watch Tyson Fury rematch Deontay Wilder.

The former heavyweight champion, working as a pundit for BT Sport, wore a purple velvet jacket and black scarf in Las Vegas.

But fans online mocked the retired Brit for the questionable look.

One said: "David Haye spilled some soup on his shirt before the fight, had to wear his hotel dressing gown."

Another said: "Why is David Haye wearing his dressing gown?"

One added: "Is David Haye wearing a valour ladies nightie?"

Haye twice pulled out of fighting Fury in 2013 and then a year later citing separate injuries.

He also shared rounds of sparring with Wilder and insisted the Bronze Bomber is the hardest-hitting heavyweight of all time.

It leaves Haye predicting the WBC champion will retain his belt in Vegas.

He said: "I don't think people have mentioned the horrendous cut that Tyson Fury received in his last fight.

"I believe that will be opened up and once he's lost one eye Tyson Fury's view and perspective will be lost and he'll unfortunately be walking onto one of the biggest shots in boxing history, as Wilder is that guy unfortunately."
