David Haye's next fight date of May 21 has been set for a bit, and he'll likely be sharing the heavyweight spotlight with the Deontay Wilder-Alexander Povetkin bout from Russia on that day, with an announced opponent coming at a Wednesday press conference.
Haye (27-2, 25 KO) returned from a three and a half year absence in January, stopping a well overmatched Mark de Mori in the first round. As a comeback fight after such a long absence, it was what it was, but the hope was that Haye, 35, would perhaps take something a tad more significant in May.
Right now, there are two names floating around: Shannon Briggs, the 44-year-old fighter who has moved on from harassing Wladimir Klitschko and is now targeting Haye, and Arnold Gjergjaj, whose name appears alongside Haye's in what may or may not be a legitimate banner image that has been seen on social media.
Why anyone would go to the trouble of making a fake banner for Arnold Gjergjaj (29-0, 21 KO) is beyond me, but stranger things have certainly happened. If you don't know who Arnold Gjergjaj is, don't feel bad. He's a 31-year-old fighter originally from Kosovo, fighting out of Switzerland, whose biggest bouts have been against Denis Bakhtov and, well, Denis Bakhtov.
Either would essentially be a sideways step from de Mori, which frankly is probably what should be expected for the latest edition of "Haye Day," even if it's not one of those two guys.
