Video: David Haye Denies He’s Going to Retire, Says He’ll Be a Champion Again

Despite losing to Tony Bellew and rupturing his achilles in the process, David Haye has blasted rumours that he’s set to retire and claims he will be the World Heavyweight champion again.

Speaking via his official Instagram page, Haye thanked his fans for their unwavering support as he undergoes a gruelling rehabilitation programme in a bid to be back in the ring before the end of 2017.

Haye maintains that’s a realistic target as he’s being taken care of by the “best people in the world”.

The 36-year-old also addressed the question marks surrounding whether he still really wants to compete at the highest level, claiming he believes that he can win a world title again once he returns to fitness:

 

Here is a little update. Thanks again for all of your support. It means the world to me 🙏🏾

Haye took Bellew the distance, despite being on one leg for most of the fight after rupturing his achilles in the sixth round.

His corner were however, forced to throw in the towel in the 11th, as it became clear that Haye could no longer compete.
