haye day dave

David Haye's next fight at The O2 will air exclusively on Dave. The channel has secured the exclusive rights to the bout, which will take place on Saturday May 21st.

This isn't the first time the Hayemaker has teamed up with Dave. Back in January, the channel aired his comeback fight after three and a half years absent from the sport. On that occasion, 3.2 million people tuned in to watch him knock out Mark de Mori in 131 seconds.

On the 21st, Haye will face Arnold 'The Cobra' Gjergjaj, the EE-EU heavyweight champion from Kosovo who is unbeaten in 29 fights (21 of which have been knock outs).

Haye said: "I'm thrilled that my latest fight will once again be free-to-air on Dave. I was overwhelmed with the peak audience of 3.2 million who tuned in to my fight against Mark de Mori. Boxing is booming in the UK right now and these figures prove it. I always said I wanted to bring boxing back to the masses and in partnership with UKTV we really did that in January."

He added: "I was really impressed with the coverage and production of my comeback fight and I'm looking forward to once again be fighting on Dave and taking the sport to a broader audience. This Haye Day will feature a longer live show with an even better undercard and more musical entertainment. It promises to once again be a must-watch event."

The day will also see Shannon Briggs take on Alexander Dimitrenko and Joe Mullender against Lee Markham.
