Holy crap. Why would anyone think they could go up against him? What are you gonna do, punch him in the nuts?

Well, he's the largest boxer to hold a title belt, anyway. The thing about being that tall is that not only can your opponent not reach all of you, you can't reach all of them either. A good boxer would make short work of him. But there's a bit of a vacuum at the top of the heavyweight division, and has been since at least the last of Lennox Lewis' good years if not long before, so he might even stick around for a while. If he's actually got skills aside from his height, he's going to get a chance to show them off.

Neat article. Don King, alway coming up with some slogan wanting to call Valuev King Kong, that's hilarious! Wonder if it will stick. I think Valuev may be around as champ for awhile, lets see what happens with Toney and the Rock.

Wait until he runs up against K.O. Daddy-O, this freak of nature will be exposed for the Shrek that he is.

I didn't see the Ruiz fight but I read that it was very controversial, and that the crowd was even booing the decision. After hearing that I am really wondering how good this guy can possibly be. Ruiz is a bum who should not have even had the title to begin with. And I don't care how big you are, if you struggle with Ruiz you aren't going to be around for very long.

Holy schnikes....That guy looks like the boxer Bugs Bunny fought against! If I didn't know better, I would swear that photo came from the Weekly World News! For Valuev's sake, I hope the security guard's story isn't true. If she's OK with him beating people up for the sin of telling her to move her car with 'the wrong tone of voice,' there's no reason to believe she doesn't use that brand of rhymes-with-witchiness on him. Remember Delilah.
