Nikolai Valuev Responds To Vitali Klitschko's Comments

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.

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,…

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

[QUOTE=paulf;10271442]One of my friends worked as a sparring partner for Valuev in 08, said he was respectful, intelligent and a good guy to work with. And that Nikolay kicked his ass.[/QUOTE] You got some big friend.
