depends what the capacity is, I was at wembley yesterday for the semi final and watching a football match from the top row is difficult. plus unless its set for september, will to cold.

i reckon 02 paying a massive fee is more likley.......or germany in an indoor arena.

The high up tickets at the MEN were 25ish? so i would imagine there would be some decent prices going and MEN was Manchester and sold out 20 000. Itf this is billed as fight of the century which it would be it would be so hyped without a doubt Haye Wlad antics would create great intrest. Haye is a name when he fights people know my mum knows who he is thats the sign when you know he has made the crossover

As a few have said, i think it will largley depend on the ticket pricing. If it's reasonable then I honestly think the fact it will take place at Wembley Stadium will probably mean 40,000 + tickets will get snapped up simply from people who live in London and want to go and be part of this huge occasion.

Think of the amount of big football clubs in London and then think of the amount of those fans who will be interested in going to watch a fight at wembley stadium straight after their team has played. You'll have 100,000 right there, not including boxing fans from all around the country. Arsenal get 60,000 a game, Tottenham get 40,000 a game, Chelsea 40,000, West Ham 30,000 etc etc.

The fact the two fighters will be in a World Heavyweight unification fight and hate each other means the press conferences and build up will easily shift the other tickets, in my opinion.

Good shout LP.

I've been to both Wembley and The Arms Park - and can safely say that The Arms Park is a far better venue.

The only problem with Cardiff is the lack of hotels, we had to stay in Swindon for the Challenge Cup Final.

I don't think that it comes anywhere near close to being full...1.2 - 2 mil ppv buys is wildly optimistic

Assuming you are seated in the stands, what kind of view would you get of the action ?

I reckon you'd get a lot better view of the fight at home for 15 or 20 quid PPV.

A household name like Frank Bruno only managed 40,000 and 70,000 in his fights at Wembley

I think that you are grossly overestimating Hayes visibility to the general public...if Frank couldn't fill Wembley, Haye sure as hell ain't
