Haye Day II
Haye Day II
Champion Shannon Briggs will face 6’7-inch giant and former European Heavyweight Champion, Alexander Dimitrenko at Haye Day on May 21
Former two-weight world champion David Haye will face undefeated Arnold ‘The Cobra’ Gjergjaj on Saturday May 21 as he continues his journey back to the summit the heavyweight division.
The Hayemaker returns to the ring for the first time since January 16 when more than 16,000 spectators packed into The O2 to witness him deliver a signature right hand to KO top 10 WBA ranked Mark de Mori. The fight lasted just 121 seconds in what was Haye’s eighth first round KO of his professional career and 25th knockout in his 27 professional wins.
Haye now turns his attentions to the 31 year old Kosovo-Albanian who has amassed an impressive record of 29-0, with 21 of those wins coming via knockout. The Cobra stands at 6 foot 5 inches tall and most recently tipped the scales at 112 kilograms - his size and strength are expected to pose a real threat.
The Cobra’s 29-0 resume is the second longest winning streak in the heavyweight boxing behind only the current WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who is yet to be beaten in his 36 professional fights, but ahead of Tyson Fury who has 25-0 record. The Cobra has impressive pedigree having sparred with the current WBA and WBO heavyweight champion and, the man he beat for those titles, Wladimir Klitschko.
David Haye will donate 10 per cent of the ticket sales from his fight against Arnold Gjergjaj on May 21 to Nick Blackwell, who was injured in his fight against Chris Eubank Jr.
