Adam Booth: Waiting to discover the severity of the hand injury suffered by David Haye

Adam Booth admits a fight against fellow Brit Tyson Fury interests David Haye, though not before the former WBA champion has finally faced Manuel Charr.

Haye was forced to postpone his June bout with German heavyweight Charr due to a hand injury that he said would need "at least four weeks" of rest.

"We are interested in the fight - it's a huge domestic fight in the UK and if you look at their ranking in the top 10 of the WBC, it's quite a natural fight in the absence of a world championship."

He has not stepped inside the ring since defeating Dereck Chisora last summer but had hoped to schedule two bouts in 2013 in his bid to climb the rankings and become a mandatory challenger to one of the Klitschko brothers.

Booth still believes that plan could come to fruition, starting with a rescheduled date to face Charr, and reckons a domestic dust-up with Fury is a "natural fight" between two men looking to get themselves a world title shot.

"The plan is Manuel Charr then we will look at later on this year," he told Sky Sports. "The plan is always to get two fights in this year.

"At this moment in time we are just assessing this injury."

On the potential clash with Fury, Booth added: "We are interested in the fight - it's a huge domestic fight in the UK and if you look at their ranking in the top 10 of the WBC, it's quite a natural fight in the absence of a world championship.

"But right now David can't hit a pad, let alone a person, so we just have to wait."
