David Haye's heavyweight rematch with fellow Briton Tony Bellew has been postponed after Haye slipped on the stairs in a "freak" training accident.Haye, who has had surgery for a torn biceps, said he was "devastated".

WBC cruiserweight world champion Bellew, 34, stopped former heavyweight world champion Haye, 37, in the 11th round of their fight in March.The rematch, a sell-out scheduled for 17 December at the 02 Arena in London, will be held on 24 March or 5 May 2018.
"After a freak accident during a stair conditioning session, which I've done with no incident hundreds of times, I lost my footing and slipped," he said."I instinctively grabbed the banister to stop myself toppling down the stairwell. In doing so I somehow managed to damage my biceps.
"I underwent a procedure to repair it; this was pretty straightforward and my doctor and physiotherapist have no doubt that not only will I make a full recovery but will be able to be back in the gym to start my arm rehabilitation in two weeks.
"I would like to apologise to Tony, Bob Cousy Jersey his family and his training team, as well as all our fans who have been left disappointed."This is the latest injury for David Haye - just about everything has gone wrong with him. He's been boxing for 25 years and it takes its toll on everybody.
A physiotherapist colleague with a background in hockey has taken to joining him for regular puck arounds but missing out on so much collective training is an obvious concern. Having the co-operation of his employers is the central requirement.
"It says a huge amount about them. They appreciate when guys are playing themselves and players appreciate that you understand high-level sport yourself so they have been happy enough to facilitate it, within reason."It will be a little less hectic at least. My boss over in Wasps is probably delighted that the next competitive game isn't until February, takes a bit of heat off him. But look, they've been very good on both sides."
Every time he has fought in the last 10 years he has hurt himself, he has pulled out http://www.authenticrocketstore.com/Charles_Barkley_Jersey of Iman Shumpert Jersey some monumental fights. He has to be so careful when he trains because Womens Zach Strief Jersey when he was younger, he didn't.He is desperate to fight, to put right a wrong which he considers the last Bellew fight - and he wants a £6m, £7m or £8m payday with Anthony Joshua.
Bellew will be crushed, he's had a long camp and I don't think he will take another http://www.vikingsonlineofficialonline.com/Everson-Griffen-Jersey fight. He will give Haye until the New Year. He wants that fight. It will make him a lot of money and Bellew is convinced he will win.
