Pattison, who is due to face Radek Geissmann of the Czech Republic at London’s York Hall on Saturday, is one of five young British boxers set to do battle in the May extravaganza.

The undefeated light-heavyweight was announced alongside Floyd Moore, Kay Prospere, Tony Dodson and Nick Webb.

The five follow the news of an English middleweight title fight between Joe Mullender and Lee Markham will be the chief support.

Former world champion Haye, who made his comeback to the ring earlier this year, said: “The reaction to the first Haye Day was incredible with a sell-out crowd, headline music act, A-List guests and record breaking TV viewing figures.

“May’s event will be even bigger and better.

“I’m delighted to add some of the best young British fighters to the bill and we are working to make sure their challengers will be equally as impressive to ensure action-packed fights throughout the card.”

Pattison is making waves in the division as he looks to position himself towards a light heavyweight title in 2016.

The 6 foot 3 inch fighter is looking to make a mark in a busy domestic weight division.

Tickets to Haye Day at The O2 on May 21, are available on general sale now via AXS.com and hayemaker.com.
