David Haye Training For Possible October Return

By Edward Chaykovsky
Inactive since a fifth round TKO win over Dereck Chisora in 2012, former two-division world champion David Haye (25-2, 24KOs) is training for a possible ring return in October.

According to his manager and trainer Adam Booth, Haye has been medically cleared to fight. Haye withdrew, twice, from a scheduled fight with Tyson Fury. The second withdrawal was due to a serious shoulder injury which required surgery.

Booth told Daily Express: "It's true, 100 percent true, David is coming back. We will not be making any big announcement but David has been given the all clear by his medical people and he wants to fight again. We plan to get back in the ring before the end of the year and preferably by October.

"David has started training and there is no need to keep this a secret any longer. He has been trying to recuperate for five and a half months and only now has he been given the all clear to fight again."

"David has got the full range of movement in his shoulder after undergoing the best treatment available. We have been very careful not to rush anything and yet we are obviously delighted with the outcome."

why would any promoter go through all of the hassle and expense to set up a Haye fight knowing it's 50/50 that he pulls out of the fight? Why would any fighter go through the hell of getting his body…

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;14600991]Good luck finding a credible opponent. David Haye has cried wolf more times than I can count. He faked injuries with Wlad, Fury, Charr. Why would anyone want to take the risk in investing $$ and time in a fight…
