David Haye is basing himself in Los Angeles as he steps up his training for his May 5 rematch with Tony Bellew.
The Hayemaker was due to try and avenge his loss to Bellew in December but was forced to pull out with a bicep injury.
Bermondsey’s former two-weight world champion posted a video of himself lifting weights on social media recently and stated: “Eight weeks post-surgery and I’m right on schedule.”
Heavyweight Haye injured his Achilles when the pair first met in March and was pulled out late in the contest as he trailed on points.
“He is private jetting from Vegas to LA,” said Bellew’s promoter Eddie Hearn. “Very different camps, but that’s David.
“It’s a big test for him. I’m expecting him to be 100 per cent. If he wasn’t, I think he knows that’s his career over. But for Tony Bellew, he believes he is going to end his career for him on May 5.”
