And it'll probably kill off any progress the sport has made in the past few years. If I was involved in the UFC/MMA scene in the UK I'd be aiming to put free to air shows at decent ticket prices up against this sort of show. Imagine Bisping v GSP was on in London on the same night on BT sport it'd definitely have N IMPACT ON THE PPV at the very least.

If assume the Crolla v Burns card left a decent dent in the Eubank ppv last week. Had John Bishop on locally last night and tonight....his tickets were buy one get one free....sounds like a cheap night but bottom line is the higher attendance the more cash the bars take.

To be fair to Hearn, and any other promoters, there is every indication that they could charge way more for tickets than they are doing, hence the resale business such as Stubhub.  I know a certain someone (ahem) who bought 4 x £60 tickets for this fight on the members' presale and then banged them on Stubhub at a higher price than most folk were asking (£150 each), and they were sold in less than 24 hours, and even before the general sale had started!  Folk are prepared to pay that kinda money in the blink of an eye, for a Sunday night show just before Christmas!  I can barely believe it but that's the way it is.  So I sometimes wonder why the promoters don't just charge that kinda money for them in the first place?  There's enough soppy gits around who would pay it.  And then just get pissed up and shout 'Knock him aaaaaart' all night long.  It's staggering!   Roll Eyes

There’s a rumour doing the rounds that Haye’s Injured. Would be the end for him if true.

Intrigued by this but don't really expect Hayes body to make it through camp.
I expect to see this postponed until Feb and then cancelled. Fairly sure haye would retire if he could, he's just pushing his body through camps to get paid. Can't see him in a ring again.
Que Bellew telling everyone he retired Haye.

Should have had a bet on this!

Hearn has categorically said it's not true - and that Sky have contacted Haye on the rumours, whom 100% denies there are any issues.

Has there been an official statement on this or is it just rumours?

Yeah but you could never trust a word out of Haye' s mouth.

Could be either Haye deliberately leaking some bullshit...in an attempt to get Bellew thinking he's got another sitting duck.

Or could be some truth to it and Haye's bullshitting with his denial....remember his trip to German in the days prior to the first fight where he claimed there was no injury?

I lean to the first option at the moment, but not by much.

I thinks its more likely Haye says he's not injured and fights anyway with his leg in cast.

Guys skint he will fight if he can as there is not long left in Hayes laughable HW reign

If he's injured then it isn't by carrying weight because the most recent pictures show a very lean Haye.

If Haye is telling a few porkies then its not the smartest move as with this being on PPV you don't want doubts in peoples minds as to whether he is doing exactly the same as the first fight.

I think he will fight regardless though as it looks like he needs / wants the money.

Yeah he's certainly dropped a lot of weight which was the right thing to do, but he fights under the suspicion of an injury and his achilles goes again, then nobody will forgive him....apart from Bellew. He got away with it last time because he showed heart, but nobody will have any sympathy or respect for him this time if he knowingly goes in compromised because he's just desperate for a pound note.

Fat Dan is reporting that Haye has pulled out of the fight.

Edit:  Looks like it's now confirmed.  It must be the end for Haye, he's essentially made of crisps now.

I still think it'll happen next year. Could be just a genuine freak injury, but with Haye obviously people will understandably feel more sceptical. Either way disappointing news.

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.
