David Haye flew to Munich to see a specialist sports doctor just four days before his fight with Tony Bellew – but the fighter will be fit for the heavyweight showdown on Saturday.
The 36-year-old travelled to see Hans Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt – who Haye labelled ‘the world’s no 1 sports doctor’ – before enjoying late-night pizza in Munich on Tuesday night with millionaire friend and fellow boxer Joe Fournier.
Muller-Wohlfahrt helped with Haye’s rehabilitation in 2013 after he was forced to pull out of his domestic bust-up with Tyson Fury with a career-threatening shoulder injury.

But despite reports that an Achilles injury could put the fight in jeopardy, Haye will be fit to face Bellew at the O2 this weekend.
Both fighters are due to hold open workouts in London on Wednesday ahead of a final press conference and weigh in later this week.
And despite Haye posting videos of himself 570 miles away, promoter Eddie Hearn is confident the fight will go ahead as planned.
‘If he wasn’t fighting I’d know. He will be at the workouts and he will be in the ring on Saturday,’ he said.
‘I’d heard about an Achilles (problem) a few weeks back but he was playing football on Soccer AM at the weekend. If you’re that worried about an Achilles injury you’re not playing football, are you?
‘It’s known he sometimes goes to Munich for treatment. That’s where he had surgery on his shoulder.’

Saturday’s clash comes after a spiteful build-up littered with abuse and trash-talking from both fighters.
Haye labelled Liverpool fight fans ‘f****** retards’ and accused Bellew’s team of putting their fighter’s life on the line – just months after punching the Liverpool boxer at their first press conference in London.
Face to face meetings between the pair have been rare, however, as the Hayemaker has spent much of his camp training in Miami.
The 36-year-old, who has previously been based in London, even posted photos of himself sipping cocktails aboard a £27million yacht.

Bellew has been preparing for the fight with his trainer Dave Coldwell in Rotherham
Bellew, in contrast, has stayed closer to home – training alongside trainer Dave Coldwell in Rotherham.
The two fighters have been trading insults relentlessly ever since Bellew confronted Haye in the wake of his stoppage win over BJ Flores in October last year.
Both fighters are on a suspended sentence from the British Boxing Board of Control following their bust up at the first press conference in November.
They were kept apart when they met again in Liverpool on Monday – with fears another pre-fight scrap could prompt the authorities to pull the fight.
