Let's play along though,

Say X 80k would show up to watch Khan-Mayweather II at Wembley, which they would. That means no extra people would turn up for the purpose of watching Haye & Klitschko.

Say 1million people bought Khan-Mayweather II PPV in the UK.
Add Haye-Klitschko to the card and you've already taken up 95% of the people who would by a PPV fight which means there's very little extra to gain.


Haye vs Klitschko II would easily sell 50k whatever in Germany and still be on UK PPV (say Haye built himself up) or do 30k something in the UK.

That alone makes far more sense than adding it to a card.
Worldwide PPVs might make it a major sell - you got Floyd with the US / Worldwide market, while all the other fighters are known in the US too, you got Haye + Khan UK/Worldwide markets, Klitschko with the eastern European markets plus all those names on the same card would be Epic! It has the potential to make some major figures on a global scale. You'd have people flying in from all over the world (Europe/States/Asia) to go to that event + the local UK support would already be massive. 80K might be significantly underestimating crowd figures really, might be more like 100k.
