I would love to see this guy fight someone. i know hes not a great boxer but he doesnt look bad he seems to have good fundimentals nice jab and nobody can hit him effectively.
against real compitition he'd most likly get his ass kicked but i'd like to see it regardless

...Yeah he is interesting to say the least. I think he may be a little better than people think but we just have no way of knowing yet. Nobles will be a good one to start to find out about Valuev.

very true ...another thing about him is he's consistant he looks the same in the early rounds as he does in the late ones he paces himself and seem to know his limits
noble is by far gonna be his toughest compition

Valuev is pretty slow, let see how his stamina holds up in this fight.

Dude is massive. He fought on a KT card or 2 a few years back. Slow as, but not the worst fighter I have seen.

Valuev is the machine for killing. Like Primo Carnera. Primo was a champ so Valuev will be too. Maybe... ;)

This guy is too big, looks unbeatable but I would like to see him with a real fighter.

This guy weight 320+ lbs., about the same weight as Shaq, and no body comes close to his weight.

Valuev vs. O'Neal is gonna be a great attraction. (just hope that Shaq's a boxer) :):)

i think the thing is when you are 7 foot plus and 24 stone you are gonna have to be some boxer to overcome those type of size differences, I dont think Valuev is a partucularly good boxer nor is particularly a "puncher" but when you are that big its bgonna hurt. Nobles is a decent test that I expect valuev to pass but before we get carried away any top heavweight would just be too fast for him, Byrd would dance rings round him Vitali would hammer him and move in and out of range, toney I reckon would just win every round....so yeah the guy is a fomridable oppoenent but due to his freaksih size not his fistic ability.

Let him fight Shaq or Yao Ming. Seriously, I think Vitali Klitscko who is about 6'6" could handle him at this time.

I think he could beat Vitali Klitschko and JAmes Toney if he connects with some good hooks. The guy is massive and has boxing fundamental skills. He was supposed to fight Sanders before Sander KTFO Wlad Klitschko. So I guess his big chance fell though due to promotional problems.

I second that. perhaps the fight against Nobles was a warning for them, he might stay away from the rematch as there is not much reward there. He needs to step it up NOW. I think I saw him ranked number nine by the WBA somehow. He should fight a top twenty guy so we can see what he's made of. He's becoming a little more confident now, I remember him saying how he's nowhere near ready for the Klitschkos, but now he's starting to realize those fights more and more...

I definitely do not see him beating Vitali, that'd ridiculous. He's not really known for overwhelming power, and Vitali will DEFINITELY dodge his pucnhes, if he can dodge bombs From Lennox and Sanders, and might you Johnson was throwing pretty fast punches too. Vitali knocks out Valuev fast, now I'm not sure of the TOney outcome. Valuev might be too big, but now they say he's 6"11 and not 7'2. Toney would be the fav .

you won't be seeing him fight any credible opponent in the near future...........

he isn't that good, but he doesn't have to be as it is difficult to even hit him with an overhand shot......so he has so many advantages given to him by god...

the german promoters are hand picking his opponents in a plan to keep him stopping opponents and then setting up an "attractive" battle between russia vs ukraine........so they will portray him as the russian wanting to fight the ukrainian ...most likely being vitali.....

vitali is quite tall also and therefore would dispose easily of valuev in a round of two......

it is interesting but you could you imagine the germans rallying him to become the number 1 and mandatory contender to byrd's title....now wouldn't that be unfair for byrd having to fight a guy 16 inches taller and 90 pounds heavier.........

Hello,

Saw him fight a couple of times, he is indeed a real beast.
But I'm not too impressed. Very slow.

Suspicious DQ in his last fight....

All i have heard about this guy is that he is huge!

Valuev is pretty untalented, slow and has only his size going for him. He works hard but that doesn't change his lack of abilities to a point were he could really step up into the top 10. He's just another attraction, nothing more, nothing less. He looked terribly against Nobles and he'll look terribly against any fighter that can box. If you wanna make a prospect outa him you could make one out of any NBA Center as well.

I mean how the **** you;d have to reach high NOT to hit him above the belt. Circus freek thats it.

a very interesting character, and i think vitali will fight him, as he will see him as an easy opponent with the opportunity to make a good marketing campaign for a battle of the two soviet giants.
