Free-to-air channel Dave has secured the rights to boxer David Haye's next fight live from London's O2 arena.
The channel previously screened David 'The Hayemaker' Hayes' memorable return to the ring after a three and a half year break. In January, 3.2 million viewers tuned in to watch Haye knockout Mark de Mori in two minutes.
Dave is now preparing to air Hayes' match against Swiss fighter Arnold 'The Cobra' Gjergjaj from the O2 arena in London, for the next Haye Day event.
Haye said, “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.”
Two other matches on the Haye Day bill are Shannon 'The Cannon' Briggs vs. Alexander Dimitrenko and 'Smokin' Joe Mullender vs. Lee 'Banjo' Markham. There will also be an historic appearance from Qatar's first ever professional boxer Sheikh Fahad Bin Khalid Al Thani.
“I’m thrilled that David wants to be back on Dave for his next fight, it speaks volumes about our relationships with top talent," said UKTV's director of commissioning Richard Watsham. "We broke records for the channel back in January when David defeated Mark de Mori. 21st May promises to be bigger, better and even more entertaining.”
