'I AM IN GREAT CONDITION'
Haye explains why he could 'fight tomorrow'
"I'M in good form, you'll get a much more entertaining fight," David Haye said. "I am, much better than many people anticipate. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating. I feel good, I've been training hard. I had an operation on the Sunday [after the first fight], the Monday I was back in training. I haven't stopped training the whole time. I'm in great condition now. I could fight tomorrow. I'm 12-round fit now. It's a good place to be eight weeks out from a fight." While it seems that sparring - largely absent from camp the first time Haye clashed with Tony Bellew - is back on the agenda for the former champion, there is one heavyweight he won't be sharing a ring with in the build-up to the sequel: Joe Joyce, the 1-0 (1) prospect who recently turned professional under Haye's guidance. "If we both get in the ring with each other, we've both got one gear and it's just hard and something will get broke. Either I'll get broke or he'll get broke and I don't want to break me and I don't want to break him. Neither of us, him particularly, he can't spar soft... I'll have to go 100 per cent and he goes 100 per cent. Something's going to break and I'd rather he do that to other people, his opponents in the ring." Haye understands why fans doubt he can come back stronger, but he insisted that will be the case. "I not only want to get back," Haye said, "I want to be better than I was before. Getting back to where I was clearly won't be good enough [to beat Bellew] so I want to be better than I ever have been, and working with my new trainer Ismael Salas, I believe he's going to give me that edge:'
