Gabriel F. Cordero of Fightnews.com is reporting that Haye's WBA title may not be on the line because of a referee crisis. The Haye camp protested the appointment of referee Genaro Rodriguez and the Haye camp says the WBA has threatened not to sanction the fight.

Haye's camp has an issue with Rodriguez because he has refereed Klitschko fights in the past. He has refereed four of Klitschkos 58 fights, three wins and one loss. Haye's camp has suggested using Luis Pabon as the referee.

He has worked both Klitschko and Haye fights. The Klitschko camp believes that the fight will go one with Rodriguez as the referee, and with Haye's WBA title on the line. I will update the story as needed.
