In that case he could make more money fighting a random (and less dangerous) opponent, potentially with rematch clauses.

50/50 makes both parties the most money by a large margin, compared to alternative opponents out there.
That's why I understand both camps positions. Neither of them want to fight when they can cash in with voluntary opposition raking in the bigger bucks. If both parties happened to have a mandatory at the same time the fight would be a lot easier to make.

People here say all the time that Hayes making money off Wlads name

It's not about 'people', dude. It's about you having bought into Hayes' hype and now left with the only option to feel good about your choice - taking pride in Haye's outstanding ability to rip your lot off. The Kilitschkos don't con and rip off their fans to the same extent, yet Hayehuggers somehow interpret this to their advantage. It's a freak show to me, I'm just having good time slagging some miserable clown around, that's it.

It's a merit of the British PPV system and the wish of the British public to have a hero to be associated with, no matter how illusory it may look.

Well, I never have had to pay for a Klitschko fight, or a Haye one for that matter. Yet, if spending your 15 quid on the fake hero makes you feel attached to 'the cause', it's your personal issue. You get what you pay for, as you said. You get an illusion.

Brits are gettting ripped off and they feel good about it. I can see no reason not increase the PPV price, it will make Brits feel even better. David Haye is on a crucial nationwide therapeutic mission.

I don't 'gotta' anything. Your feeling of being 'entertained' only arises from your emotional attachment to Haye magnified by the fact of your financial commitment. Valuev and Harrison figts were two of the worst HW fights on my memory, the Barret fight was mediocre and the Ruiz one - decent. Now, what's really 'exciting' about Haye?

His last four HW bouts include two of the most disgusting and downright disgraceful HW fights in recent memory. That's a 50% shit ratio. Chisora is right when he says "What memorable fights has he delivered at HW? None!". Heck even Khan delivered more exciting and memorable fights over the last 24 months.

I don't see how Haye is so highly exciting (to a non Brit) to boxing fans *NOT* emotionally attached to him? If Haye was as exciting as some think he'd fight in the US alongside Pacman raking in $49.95 PPVs.

He's not, he knows it, Booth knows it, everyone outside of the UK knows it. That's why Haye and Booth are staying in the UK doing their thing just like the Klit brothers stay in Germany doing theirs. Both have found their ideal little localized business model.

the funny thing is that most of Hayes fights were broadcast free in germany which has a free to air sat system which means it can also be watched free in UK
