David Haye Admits Career Could Very Well Be Over

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former two-division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24KOs) is staring at the end of the road of his boxing career. The former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion has been inactive since TKO victory over Dereck Chisora in July 2012. He was scheduled to face Tyson Fury on two separate dates, but withdrew both times due to injury. He underwent shoulder surgery earlier this year, with the shoulder still troubling him when he tries to train.

“I’d love to [fight again] but maybe my body is telling me to call it a day. I don’t know. You have got to listen to your body and when your bicep detaches from your shoulder and your arm sort of rolls down, your body is telling you it’s enough. I can just about do eight press-ups. I’m months and months and months away from even punching a bag, let alone a person," Haye told Talk Sport.
