David Haye knocked out Arnold Gjergjaj at London's 02 Arena – just one minute and 35 seconds into the second round – in the second victory of his comeback.
Kosovo-Albanian Gjergjaj had already twice hit the canvas and was a tiring figure appearing to want a way out when falling for a third time from another right hand.
The heavyweight, fighting for the second time in five months after a three and a half-year lay-off with a career-threatening shoulder injury, provided another demonstration of his power.
But all fans really wanted was a fight they could actually finish a pint in front of.

As with January's underwhelming first-round defeat of Mark de Mori, Haye again attracted a significant crowd. But Gjergjaj lacked the skill-set, athleticism and ambition to trouble him.
Some boxing fans thought it was all a bit of a farce.

Been following boxing since I was 4 years old, but tonight was one of the worst boxing bills I have seen #HayeDay

What a massive waste of time. An actual insult to the heavyweight division #Hayeday

All he needs are some better matched opponents.
Genuinely think Haye has been nipping to his local Tesco and asking blokes if they wanna fight him at the O2 #HayeDay

Haye celebrating like he's just won a huge fight in his career.
Might as well fight my mother. #Hayeday

To be fair Gjergjaj had beaten some impressive opponents, such as a statue, a traffic cone, a sandwich board and Audley Harrison #HayeDay

Dave really is the repeat comedy channel. Seem to remember watching that a few months ago. #HayeDay
