I think the way he fights is generally the most appropriate for him. Due to his immense size and weight he is just too slow. He can get away with that against a lot of people because there are many other HWs who aren't exactly speedsters but guys with reasonably fast hands and movement will always give him trouble no matter what he does. If he would suddenly start getting ultra aggressive against those guys they would just make him miss for a few rounds and he would be out of gas in no time.

Valuev should fight Jukka Järvinen.

I would bet all my money on Järvinen.

Why?

Because he has a better movement and jab.

He should either retire or fight a handpicked confidence builder. The guy is over 35 7 foot 300 plus. He seems to have aged quickly and not only that but his knees do not allow him to be the fighter he used to be. Before he won the belt he let go with his right more he thru way more power shots. He became a jabber. I thought after his Chugaev fight he was all down hill. What he needs to do is fight a one dimensional slugger who has no foot work and no defense. A guy that would be tailor made for him. He could fight Mcall, Tua, Areolla, Oleg Maskaev. All are dangerous punchers but would not provide the achilles heel for Valuev. He can deal with plodding sluggers not fast movers like Haye or Holyfield or Donald.

Valuev has the rematch clause, which he should use, at some point, it will get him another nice payday. I just happen to think he should not go for this fight straight away, a win against a famous gatekeeper, would help bring attention to him, promote his rematch with Haye or even open up new possibilities for big fights.

Golota in Moscow, Warsaw, Chicago or NYC will be good. Maskaev in Moscow or Germany, Botha in Moscow, Germany or South Africa, any of these would be fine for a good payday and as a confidence builder. Briggs could be too dangerous, Rahman is too shot.

Don King has promotional rights, I'm going to say this; HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER TITLE FIGHT! Despite the fact that Arreola got his ass pounded, being owned by another top promotional company as well I wouldn't be suprised if he has one as well.

Someone mentioned Alexander Ustinov, he was from the K-1 I believe I seen him and if he tries to pull that stunt against Klitschko he's in some deep crap. The other tall guy that Ustinov has faced off against was against Julius Long which seemed pretty interesting for the first two rounds until he pulled a Sam Peters on him!

Well comparing Valuev to Long ( I would love to see that fight regardless of regards just to see two giants fight like when Long was in K-1 I believe it was when he faced off a guy that was 6'11 ) Unlike Valuev, when you watch Julius Long fight, you find yourself BEGGING for him to jab, when he did it against the top cuban contender in the HW division, it made you feel kinda proud of him to go all 8 rounds

Anyways, comparing Valuev to Long would be like comparing Klitschko to Dimitrenko now is that truly fair? maybe a confidence booster for Eddie Chambers to take on the next big lug but I doubt when he lands that body shot, all Wladamir's going to do is blink and wonder what bug bit him.

With a reputation of being a 2 time HW champion and with Don King on his side, I say another fight's going to take place whether it's with Haye, one of the Klitschko's or if some sort of goddam miracle occurs, it will be the almighty trilogy that the earth stood still for to give praise, Nikolai Valuev vs John Ruiz III! the battle of the hairy wilderbeasts! 1st fight was a great fight, in the 2nd fight, Valuev spanked his ass, but it's too early to see where Ruiz is in his career, I was unfortunate not to see his last fight on the undercard.

DKP and Sauerland are demanding US$ 4 mil. purse to make the fight with Vitali. Is this a legit request? considering Valuev has a contractual rematch set with Haye?

I wonder how much this fight is worth in Germany? 8-10 million? that means Valuev is asking for 40-50% of the purse.

Well, if they can't get the fight with Valuev donne, then maybe a good way to go is ask DKP for a fight against high ranked Ray Austin.

Fight a gatekeeper like Golota, Botha, Maskaev, Rahman, could be good as a confidence builder.
