David Haye, if Shoulder Recovers, Open To Fighting Again

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former two division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24KOs) is open to the idea of fighting again. Haye, inactive since a July 2012 TKO win over Dereck Chisora, would like to fight again - if his shoulder is fully healed after finishing up his rehabilitation program.

Haye was scheduled, on two occasions, to fight domestic rival Tyson Fury. He withdrew the first time with a cut suffered during sparring. The second time, Haye says that he suffered a career-threatening shoulder injury that required surgery.

“If I can get my shoulder back to throwing my trademark Hayemaker, 80 to 85 percent I would be good to go,” said Haye to 7Days. “I feel that 80 percent of my right hand equals probably 110 percent of someone else’s.

“At the moment it is about four percent, with four percent I cant even think about punching. I don’t know [about fighting], you don’t know until [the rehabilitation] is done. You can either get a 100 percent yes, or 100 percent no but the answer can be completely different in six month’s time."

“I can feel it gradually getting better, whether it will go back to normal, no doctor is going to put his neck out either one way or another. They will either say it looks good or it doesn’t look good. One doctor says one thing, another says another.”
