Most likely but Haye is becoming massive over here now. Everyone seems to know who he is. When he first signed to fight Wlad last year he was more or less unknown, now he is a national star. It all depends on the build up to this fight. If Wlad is just seen as another Eastern Euro giant the fight won't do well.

I wouldn't fancy being on any of the top tiers thats for sure.

I reckon it would do 50-60,000. That would be my estimate. It would probably do more in Germany since Wlad has been fighting on national TV. There is no substitute for fighting on national TV, no matter how many Soccer AM shows you rock up on to promote yourself.

Maybe they could do it here,

I wouldn't go just because of the sheer amount of people that will be there. The view will be wank, and i wouldn't want to be there just to say i tasted the atmosphere. I want to see the fight. Men, i was up in the nosebleeds, have short sight which is bad even with my glasses, and it was just close enough to see. whereas wembley with 70k plus people would be bollocks i am afriad

i think if it was about 15-20 quid for the cheapest seat, then it would do it comfortably.

I think he could. This fight has the potential to be massive.

I think Hatton vs Mayweather could certainly have done HUGE numbers, looking back now that fight was massive, everyone was talking about it....
About 30,000 went to ****ing Vegas !!!

Big fights in this country can do huge numbers. Whether Haye is there yet, I dunno. He's certainly getting there.

Not a chance, and he'd be stupid to try.

Haye would do 40k max at the fight, unless he was flogging tix for a tenner, and would do nothing like a million PPV buys.

They'd sell off most of the seats for cheap enough so that it sells out. Also, when arranged for boxing, they'd have to shut off part of the stadium anyway, so it's not like they'd need to sell 100,000 seats for it to sell out.

But if Calzaghe-Manfredo can get a live gate of 50,000, Haye-Klitschko could double that if they promote it right.

It was 30,000.

50,000 for Kessler.

Joe would have done 80,000 for B-hop.
