David Haye's Rehabilitation Bearing Positive Results

David Haye hinted once again that he may yet have a future in boxing in an update on his shoulder injury.

The former WBA heavyweight champion required reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder after injuring it in training for February's ill-fated clash with Tyson Fury.

The 33-year-old was told by doctors to 'seriously consider retirement' following November's five-hour operation, with Haye admitting; "If I'm now destined to have won the European Championship, the unified World Cruiserweight Championship and the WBA Heavyweight Championship of the world...then so be it."

However, he gave a more positive update on his website on Friday.

"I've had now around 5 months of rehabilitation, and the effects of such a program means, I have full range of movement, and there are not many everyday things I can't do perfectly," he said.

"Obviously punching is not a "everyday thing" but I'm not far away from doing some very light shadow boxing to test it ever so gently.

"I now have 6 pins holding my shoulder together, after full reconstructive surgery. Scars have healed, and I'm feeling positive.

"No decisions have been made with regards my future as a professional boxer. But I'm in the gym every day, religiously doing the programme set out by my Physio. I've yet to work on the pads with Adam Booth or throw any "Hayemakers", but I don't feel a million miles away!!"

Earlier this year Haye said that 50 percent of doctors he had spoken to said he could make a full recovery, while the other half told him to 'forget it'.

The Londoner remains one of the biggest draws in British boxing and he may yet be lured back into the ring for a big domestic clash with Fury.

Here come the naysayers. Let the man heal up. If it's meant for him to fight again, he will. If not, most of his bouts were exciting to watch. Can't say that for all fighters.

Mike Parez beats Bryant Jennings ... Parez vs Haye would be bigger than Haye vs Fury
