Yesterday we discussed a canceling of press conferences in Germany and the United Kingdom for the July 2 fight between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye. Today, Haye is talking about what the dispute is all about.

Speaking to the Mirror, Haye revealed that it's an argument over how many tickets he'll have available for British fans making the trip to Hamburg.

"The fight is on but the ­Klitschko brothers are giving me a ­headache over the tickets for my travelling fans," said Haye. ... "I’m not going to roll over and let them get their way with the tickets – I want a fair allocation and at good prices. My fans have been loyal and I don’t want a ­single one to be ­disappointed this time."

The good news is that this doesn't appear to be something that will get the fight canceled. It's just more ego at play between two sides that have plenty of it to spare. These two are probably going to be arguing about something behind the scenes right up until the entrances for the fight, when I suspect Haye will complain that the volume on "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" isn't as high as he would like.

Get geared up for a lot more bickering, is all I'm saying.
