DAVID HAYE has revealed the results of surgery on his left bicep that forced the postponement of his grudge rematch with Tony Bellew.

Haye suffered what he said was a “freak accident” in training for the December 17 date at London’s O2 Arena, tripping during an exercise routine on some stairs and injuring his upper arm while reaching for the banister to prevent a fall.

A “devastated” Haye said earlier this week he hopes his return bout with Bellew can be rearranged for March 24 or May 5, and his spirits seemed to have lifted as he gave an update on his injury on Friday.
