Recently rumours started going around that David Haye was having issues with his Achilles again and that the fight against Tony Bellew on December 17th was at risk.
‘The Hayemaker’ initially suffered the injury during the fight against Bellew back in March and cost him the win because he couldn’t utilise any efficient movement for the rest of the fight.
The rematch is set to end the great year of boxing that was 2017 and pulling out at this stage would cause a massive backlash. Promoter Eddie Hearn didn’t waste any time and confirmed publically that the injury rumour was false and Haye is not stepping aside.
“I know he [Haye] was training yesterday morning with a corporate day for Park Plaza, training fine. So I was a bit taken aback by it. So I spoke to the team and they said absolutely no problem. Sky then spoke to David Haye and said – oh we’ve seen this and he said – absolutely not true. I’m 100 per cent ready to go December 17th. It’s on,” told Hearn in an interview with IFL.tv
