By Ruslan Chikov

Former WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev has responded to some of the comments that were recently made by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, following Saturday's first round stoppage of Cuban Odlanier Solis. Klitschko once again named Valuev as a possible future opponent. He said "I am ready to face Valuev, I can't see him walking away from the millions [of dollars] that were proposed to him."

Valuev told Alexander Pavlov that he doesn't recall being "offered millions" for the fight.

"And what's so special about it [Vitali's comments]? The only thing in his remarks is that he referred to some wretched millions. I read about it in the newspaper. The millions - plural - that he nevered offered to me," Valuev said.

Valuev has not fought since 2009. Since the loss to David Haye, the "Russian Giant" has underwent several surgical procedures for existing injuries. He is not sure about his future or whether or not it's worth returning to the sport.

Somebody wrote that Valuev is just "playing the media game" and that's a good point. In the real world, I'm convinced that Valuev is supposed to be a main draw for the events that Sauerland Event has negotiated with the Arab Emirates. I would expect Valuev to fight in the Emirates some time in th...

Valuev hasn't done anything to make himself relevant since losing to Chagaev a couple years ago, besides maybe holding Haye to only 10 or 12 punches thrown per round. I thought he showed a decent jab in the Liakhovich fight, but he's faded badly ever since. Could probably still function as a ...

Blobby is a blind delusional retarded Klitschko hater who can't accept the fact that Vitali KO'd Solis in the 1st round.
