Tyson Fury's uncle and trainer has announced that his nephew will not fight David Haye after their heavyweight bout was cancelled.

Haye announced on Saturday morning that a cut sustained over his left eyebrow on Friday night which required six stitches forced him to postpone the contest against Fury a week before they were due to meet in the ring.

While the Londoner is hopeful of re-arranging the clash, Peter Fury told World Boxing News: "We move on from Haye now and look to better things.

"This has put a bad taste in our mouths so we're moving on and the fight will not be rearranged on our side."

Despite posting a picture of his injury on social networking sites, Haye's pull-out has angered the younger Fury, who criticised his heavyweight rival.

"There only would have been one winner and that was me. An army couldn't have stopped me on Saturday night because I'd prepared mentally, physically, everything," said Fury.

"I couldn't have done any more in training. I'm in the shape of my life, I just couldn't wait to show everyone what I was going to do and had up my sleeve.

"There's no excuses ever out of me. You never hear me say excuses. If I had two broken hands I would still go in there and fight on Saturday night."

The Manchester fighter added on Sky Sports: "I've been training so hard, so much for these big opportunities and every time I get a big opportunity something goes wrong."

"Why can I not get my time to shine? Give me a reason!"
