DAVID HAYE has vowed to go from "fat to fit in eight weeks" after piling on the pounds for an "experiment".
The former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion ditched his five hours of exercise a week and ate whatever he liked.
As a result, his body fat went up 12 per cent, having gone from 15st 7lb to 16st 7lb, paving the way for a two-month transformation.
He said: "I did an experiment, I stopped doing any exercise and started eating what everybody else was eating.
"And as a result, this is what transpired. I've turned into a mere mortal I've got ridiculous rolls of fat on the side.
"Body fat went from ten per cent to 22-and-a-half per cent in three months just by doing what everybody else is doing.

"I'm not overeating, I was just easting desserts, just drinking alcohol with everybody else and this is what happens."
Haye, 42, is now going to document his eight-week weight loss on his website, planning to drop 1.5 per cent body fat each week.
The retired boxer gave an insight into his tricks, which includes loading up on nutrients, minerals and vitamin rich food.
Unfortunately, sugar will have to be cut out alongside bread, rice, potato’s and pasta.

Haye will drink no less than three litres of water a day and will not eat his first meal until early in the afternoon.
So it will leave the British boxing legend hungry for results, which he plans to reveal in the new year.
Haye retired after consecutive losses to Tony Bellew but returned for an exhibition last year against his friend Joe Fournier.
And the millionaire businessman-turned 9-0 boxer admitted he wished his ex-sparring partner came out of shape for their eight-rounder.
He joked: "F*** me why couldn’t you have been in that shape when we fought."
Haye responded: "Because I wanted to win!! May the fat burning begin!!"
