Pictured: Bruised David Haye shows off freak bicep injury ahead of rehab

The 37 year-old saw a fourth contest from his last eight bouts called off on Monday following a freak accident which happened last Friday week.

Haye was due to battle Bellew for the second time on December 17 after losing via stoppage in March, in which the ex-two-weight world title holder also was the victim of an achilles injury.

It’s not one hundred percent certain whether Bellew v Haye II will go head in the coming year, although Haye is hoping to set a date over the next few days.

In the meantime, Bellew could take a fight early next year in a bid to stay busy.

March or May have already been mentioned as possibilities for a return to The O2 in London.
