David Haye has refused to rule out a return to the ring after making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery.

Haye injured himself in the build-up to February’s bout with Tyson Fury, with the trouble to his right shoulder leading to the cancellation of the bout.

Haye underwent reconstructive surgery and the former WBA heavyweight champion was seemingly on course to retire from the sport after months of rehabilitation.

But he has now hinted once again that he may return with many under the belief that a clash with Fury could be resurrected, should he be cleared to compete.

Haye wrote on his website: “I’ve had now around 5 months of rehabilitation, and the effects of such a program means, I have full range of movement, and there are not many everyday things I can’t do perfectly.

“Obviously punching is not an “everyday thing” but I’m not far away from doing some very light shadow boxing to test it ever so gently. I now have 6 pins holding my shoulder together, after full reconstructive surgery. Scars have healed, and I’m feeling positive.

“No decisions have been made with regards my future as a professional boxer. But I’m in the gym every day, religiously doing the programme set out by my physio. I’ve yet to work on the pads with Adam Booth or throw any “Hayemakers”, but I don’t feel a million miles away!!”

Haye previously claimed that half of the doctors he had spoken to informed him that a full recovery was possible, while the others told him not to even consider it.
