David Haye's second fight this year was much like his first, as he dropped Arnold Gjergjaj three times in two rounds in the mismatch that was expected, setting up a September fight with Shannon Briggs.

Haye (28-2, 26 KO) dropped Gjergjaj (29-1, 21 KO) in the first round, and then seemingly went into cruise control, carrying the fight a little bit instead of trying to finish. Gjergjaj went down on a punch that came in after the bell, too, but the referee basically ignored that this happened.

Gjergjaj, who didn't offer any real resistance and certainly didn't spend much time looking to throw punches, went down on a jab early in the second round, receiving boos from the crowd. He was down again a bit after, and referee Terry O'Connor stopped the farce at 1:35 of round two.

Haye confirmed that he'll face Shannon Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KO) in September. Briggs defeated an even worse opponent with a first round knockout earlier on the show.
