I'm not convinced it does.

Wlad isn't a name over here, if I asked somebody who Wladimir Klitschko was they'd probably mention Lennox Lewis and Herbie Hide.

Then again, I wasn't certain Haye vs Ruiz would sell out the MEN, so maybe they can, with a good undercard.

I'd like to see...........

Haye vs Wlad
Rhodes vs ?????
Groves vs ????? (Magee maybe)
Lindsay vs Simpson

Then a few decent little 6 & 8 rounders.

Either way, I'd go

Yes, without a doubt.

A World Heavyweight Title fight at Wembley Stadium will be a massive spectacle.

i think good promotion , fiesty press conferance , lots of interviews with the inevitable smack talk , first fight at wembley , heavyweight championship unification

all that combined with a decent undercard though im not convinced that matters to anyone whos not an avid boxing fan it sells out easy

90 000 is a big ask. I don't think it would sell out.

Wembley Arena yes. Wembley Stadium no, can't see it selling out at all, not 90,000.

No fight would ever sell out Wembley.

100,000 at the prices that will be charged? No way.

I have absolutely no idea.

But if they want to stand a chance then Wlad (rightfully) has to be portrayed as the no.1 HW in the world. They need to play heavily on the unification. Say it'll be the first time since Lennox that 3 of the big 4 belts will be on the line in a HW title fight. Even call Wlad linear champ and all that. Also mention that Wlad is trained by Emmanuel Steward who trained Lennox. Would greatly depend on how they price tickets as well. I'd say they should close of the top tier as that would probably be too far back and they'd have floor seating on the pitch as well.

That's a bit of a sweeping statement mate!

I think Hatton vs Mayweather could certainly have done HUGE numbers, looking back now that fight was massive, everyone was talking about it....

If it can do well over a million buys at 5am with a shit undercard I'm pretty sure it would do a live gate of 100k at a reasonable hour.

Wlad over here would have every single boxing fan at the venue.

Haye in a fight at Wembley against Wlad would be epic.

Even I would consider going to London to see this.
