According to a report in The Sun, heavyweight champions David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko have settled their dispute over tickets for their July 2 showdown. The two boxers were recently embroiled in a back and forth tussle over the number of tickets being allocated. The press tour, scheduled to begin this week, was pushed back until Monday to give the their sides more time to settle this issue.

[QUOTE=-The Game-;10481525]But like I said, they are both champs....Wlad could have had home advantage, while Haye comes out 2nd.......[/QUOTE] Why though? When the champion (Wlad is THE HW Champion) has always come out 2nd. Why is this even an issue?
