Looks like most of the cheap seats have sold, but a load of ringside ones still available. There will be a fair few lucky people getting bumped up to ringside for free.

Dave Coldwell said in his blog on the BN website that there's only summat like 800 tickets left.

Doesn't bode well for any potential Klitschko negotiations if he can't sell the arena out. Hopefully be some good PPV numbers again although I wouldn't be surprised if they're a let down.

800 left that is very good. How much does it hold 23,000?

Do you think it will be sold out by fight time?

Even if it doesn't sell out, it'll probably 'sell out' so you can bet that's what will be reported anyway. Whether those tickets will all actually be sold or whether they'll be a few freebies going about is another matter.

In reality, aren't most of the ringside seats taken by celebrities. At the Barrat fight, the likes of Bruno and Lloyd Honeyghan were ringside, surely they are not expected to pay but are invited guests.

Didn't Haye say that loads of Premiership footballers will be there, I expect that they will be guests as well.

If they've sold out everything else then they've done really well. Big things for the Hayemaker, definitely catching the public eye

Also the fact that he's up against Ruiz will make the numbers hard going for this fight ... there is just no angles to sell that guy to the British public other than Hayes first defense of his title.

I'm guessing a load on Man U and Chelsea players will be there

I was talking to a german friend of mine who said klitschko chambers was only about half full so probably around 25,000-30,000

but of course it was a "sell out"
