Klitschko, Haye Argue Over Tickets, Dispute Not Serious

By Terence Dooley

David Haye has insisted that his fight with Wlad Klitschko is not in jeopardy amidst canceled press conferences, a row over ticket allocation and the type of negotiation niggles that have come to characterise the July 2nd showcase.  Indeed, Haye has told told The Sunday Mirror that he is holding out for a greater share of tickets for his British fans but expects things to be smoothed over.

"The fight is on but the ­Klitschko brothers are giving me a ­headache over the tickets for my travelling fans.  I have given in to every single demand that they have made and they keep moving the goalposts.  I’m not going to roll over and let them get their way with the tickets – I want a fair allocation and at good prices.  My fans have been loyal and I don’t want a ­single one to be ­disappointed this time," revealed Haye.

The Guardian have reported that this week's schedule pressers are off pending the ironing out of one or two issues, which could mean a number of things given the history of this match, although it is highly unlikely that the contest will be pulled given the fact that both men have pledged their commitment to making this one happen.

[QUOTE=Boxing Scene;10465887]Not here, in fact no one here knows Haye nor cares about him except hardcore boxing fans, in fact this isn't even on PPV in the U.S.[/QUOTE] Probably because he isn't an American...Pacquiao and Mayweather aren't even PPV here…

The more I read UK fellows posts, the more it seems to me that the British are mentally retarded. Offhand, perhaps IQ 90 or less сombined with extreme insolence and ignorance. Although I admit that the sample is not representative…
