A torn bicep is unfortunate and can happen however part of me thinks this was some sort off marketing plan I have never known a main event to be so close to Christmas and on a Sunday night. It leads me to believe its been done to hype the fight massively, no idea why. The Sunday night main event always left me wondering about this fight.

I seriously don't think it needed any hype.  As pathetic as it has become with Haye, he can still sell tickets and sell a fight.  Maybe only because there are so many morons out there, but the fact remains he is still marketable.  God knows how.  I was one who thought tickets for this would never sell but they flew off the shelf!  And for a Sunday just before Christmas.  I think the last thing this fight needed was another Haye injury in training.  But you can bet that if they re-schedule it for next year, it'll sell like hot cakes!   Roll Eyes

The fight was only on a Sunday night because they couldn't get the O2 on a Saturday night and Sky obviously wanted to get another PPV in before end of year.

I really don't understand why Sky keep investing time and money in fights involving Haye; he's now pulled out of fights with Charr, Fury (twice) and Bellew. And Haye was the reason why Sky binned PPV fights for best part of 2 years after people got pissed off with the Harrison and Klitshcko debacles.

I wonder what the demand will be like if it does get re-arranged, be surprised if it's anywhere near the December date.
