Well, he looked slow, and un coordinated if you ask me. I was shocked at the heart and determination of Barrett. He deserves alot of credit for taking some of those shots from Valuev and continuing on. I thought the stoppage by his corner was very timely, and in fact probably should have been done by the ref. The comment about working Valuev's body early was exactly what I was thinking. Instead of throwing those high looping punches, he could have absolutely BLASTED the gigantic torso right infront of him.
That being said, I think that a matchup between the Valuev and the winner of the Klitschko/Brock fight will very likely happen, exposing Valuev for what he really is- a gigantic boxer with amatuer skills.
