David Haye's May 21 fight against Arnold Gjergjaj, aka The Undefeated Cobra, will once again air on Dave in the United Kingdom, where Haye made his return in January against Mark de Mori.

Haye (27-2, 25 KO) thrashed de Mori in just over two minutes in what was his first fight in three and a half years. Now the 35-year-old "Hayemaker" takes on Gjergjaj (29-0, 21 KO), an undefeated and untested 31-year-old originally from Kosovo. It's not expected to be much better a fight than Haye-de Mori by most pundits, but the Haye-de Mori fight did good numbers on a network that isn't known at all for airing sports, and he remains a popular/notorious figure in the sport, one that people do tune in to see fight.

If Haye and undercard fighter Shannon Briggs are both victorious on the show, they've agreed to fight later this year. The 44-year-old Briggs (59-6-1, 52 KO) will be taking on Alexander Dimitrenko (38-2, 24 KO) on the show.
