David Haye Online video Score: 5 / five
Former World Boxing Association or the WBA Heavyweight champion David Haye has refused to rule out yet another comeback to the sport despite suffering a career threatening shoulder injury last year.
The 33 year old Englishman hinted that he might finally hang up his gloves for good last November after cancelling a scheduled bout against countryman Tyson Fury in February to undergo surgery to repair the damage. However, the hopes of boxing fans have been raised by a few notches following a message on Twitter by the former Cruiserweight who posted that 2014 will hopefully be his healthiest year and he wants to go on.
Haye was recently in Dubai for a promotional event where he clarified his statement. He mentioned that at the moment, he cannot confirm whether he is 100 percent retired or not, adding that he will have a scan in some time and after that, he will know the condition of his injury and whether it is completely healed or not.
David Haye has already been linked with a fight in recent weeks, about which, he mentioned that committing to a fight is not something he wants to do at the moment because he can’t even properly lift a bag with his right arm.
He added that he is in a limbo presently and he doesn’t want to raise the hopes of people saying that he will fight and ultimately having to back down again. He mentioned that it will be great if it heals completely and only then can he say anything about it.
He also mentioned that if he doesn’t get to make a comeback again, nothing will change and he is happy with his records as it stands. But those who know David Haye will know he will be up for one more crack at glory.

English boxer Dereck Chisora has backed former World Boxing Association or the WBA Heavyweight Championship holder David Haye to make a staggering return to the ring despite being advised by doctors to hang up his gloves.
Haye last fought against his countryman Chisora at Upton Park almost eighteen months back now, winning comprehensively but he had to undergo a reconstructive shoulder surgery in Germany recently which forced him to withdraw from a bout against Englishman in Tyson Fury. But according to Chisora, being able to stay away from the lure of fighting would be too much for his countryman and he will make his comeback to the ring.
Speaking to a media outlet in England, Chisora stated confidently that Haye will be back, adding that is confident of his return because the former world champion loves the sport. He mentioned that David Haye will find it very difficult to get away from something for which he has too much passion.
The defeat that Chisora suffered at the hands of Haye was his third straight defeat after losing just once in his first fifteen bouts, that too, against a hard hitting Heavyweight like Tyson Fury.
But Chisora is not tempted to look back on the glorious past of those early fights. Instead, he is looking forward to a successful run in the next few bouts and he is hopeful if David Haye does indeed make a sensational return to the ring in the near future, he could land a fight against him.
Haye will also be tempted to return to the ring with Vitali Klitschko, the World Boxing Council or the WBC Heavyweight champion vacating his title and he could get his long awaited shot at another title reign if he does indeed want to make a comeback to professional boxing.
