David Haye is confident that, following a successful operation, his injury woes are well behind him and is adamant that he still has a lot more to give ahead of his rematch with Tony Bellew.
The pair were scheduled to meet in December 2017 but a bicep injury to Haye forced a postponement of the contest which will now take place on May 5, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
The London heavyweight concedes that the injury was a "freak accident" and Haye is confident that he will be at his best once the rivals go at it again.
Tony wants this as much as I do, the first fight was an epic battle, edge of your seat stuff, and I think the fans will have another fantastic showdown.
"The injury is healing well and the operation was a flying success," he said, speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.
"I've worked every day to make sure I'm not just as good but better than before. I'm punching already, doing pull-ups, press-ups, everything I could do before.
"What happened last time to postpone the fight was a freak accident, like getting hit by a car, there's nothing you can do. Unfortunately, it happened and thankfully the rematch got rescheduled.
"Tony wants this as much as I do, the first fight was an epic battle, edge-of-your-seat stuff, and I think the fans will have another fantastic showdown.
"I was a huge favourite the first time around, he said my body will break down, he will take over and stop me and that's exactly what he did. However, I know I still have a lot more to give.
"When the bell rings, you'll see the best of me. People are worried about my body falling apart but hopefully that's a thing of the past and you'll see a very healthy athlete on May 5."
