The Sun reports this morning that the dispute over ticket allocation for the July 2 fight between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye has been settled, and all systems are go for the highly-anticipated world heavyweight championship fight.

Haye will receive 7,000 tickets to bring British fans to Hamburg, Germany, for the fight, but don't let that fool you into thinking there will be just 7,000 British fans at the Imtech Arena. Haye recently said that if he could get even 25 percent British fans in the building, his side would drown out the Klitschko fans in the stadium.

For the record, if the building sells out at about 57,000, Haye would have to bring about 14,250 fans with him from the UK to equal the 25 percent. But as we all know, British fans can be a boisterous bunch for boxing, so even 10K could make quite a racket at the Imtech.

The good news is that -- for now -- everything is back in order and the fight moves forward. We'll see what happens every week until fight night.
