David Haye has Achilles surgery after Tony Bellew defeat

Monday, 6 March 2017 :  David Haye has undergone surgery on the Achilles tendon he ruptured during Saturday night’s heavyweight defeat to Tony Bellew in London.

The 36-year-old suffered the injury in the sixth round and was knocked down in the 11th to give Bellew a surprise win.

“David would like to thank everyone for their many messages of support, as well as the staff at the hospital,” read a statement from Haye’s representatives.

WBC cruiserweight champion Bellew, 34, broke his hand in the fight.

“I broke my right hand in the second or third round,” Bellew told .

“It is sore now but I don’t feel the pain – all I think about is winning.”

Liverpudlian Bellew, who described his injured hand as being ‘the size of a small bowling ball’, says he now wants time to reassess his options.
