Arrow NIKOLAI VALUEV vs MONTE BARRETT - Oct 7 2006

NIKOLAI VALUEV
44-0, 32 KO's

VS

MONTE BARRETT
31-4-0, 17 KO's

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2006 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT
LIVE ON HBO
World Championship Boxing
ALLSTATE ARENA, CHICAGO, IL
12 RD. HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE

Quote:
At seven feet tall and 320 pounds, Nikolai "The Russian Giant" Valuev (44-0, 32 KOs), from St. Petersburg, Russia, is the tallest and heaviest heavyweight champ in history. Promoted as more of a sideshow than a boxer early in his career, he has started to shed the novelty tag in his last three fights. Scoring a unanimous decision victory over slick Larry Donald in October 2005, Valuev got his first shot at the title when he faced John Ruiz for a heavyweight belt two months later. While Ruiz' experience and relentless style made him the favorite, Valuev proved himself with a unanimous decision win. Since that triumph, Valuev, 33, has defended his title once, earning a TKO victory against Owen Beck on June 3. This fight marks just his third appearance on American soil.

Although he gives up nine inches to his Russian opponent, Monte Barrett (31-4, 17 KOs), of Queens, will be highly motivated by the challenge. While carving out a solid career, he has never been able to break through for that one marquee victory. Barrett has shown the ability to take punches and put together effective combinations of his own, most notably in his win over Owen Beck, who was undefeated at the time. A victory over Valuev in their 12-round bout would give Barrett a title and the validation he has sought throughout his decade-long career.

I saw on the news yesterday that the Russian Giant is managed by non other than the infamous Don King who will probably "milk this cow" until there is nothing left of him as King did other boxers.

True , but King did help in bringing him to the U.S. & on our TV.

I dont like King but this is one time I am happy with what he did. I think Valuev has the potential to make King & himself alot of money & fame if the promote/market him right.

I think king is trying to make a quick buck. The big man is promotable, but as soon as he fights anyone with any decentcy, he will get either ko'ed or out boxed so bad everyone will see what a fraud he really is. He barely got by RUiz, and most people including myself thought that washed up Ruiz who was never any good in the first place actually won the fight.

I don't know if Barret will win, I do think Barret can out box him, but I know that a Sammuel Peter and Calvin Brock would destroy this clown.

Have you seen him fight?

Did you see the Ruiz vs Valuev fight?

I dont think he is great but I think he is just as good as most heavies.

How many heavyweights have looked good against Ruiz? Maybe Tua & Toney or Golota But its hard to look good against Ruiz ask Holyfield & Rahman.

I would also try to market him as fast as possible & get what I could outa him. I would do that with most heavyweights out there.

Here is a link if you have not seen him before. YouTube - Nicolay Valuev vs Owen Beck

I dont think Valuev is as clumsy as most think. He is not great but is solid.

Thanks for the quick update, thats what we needed

Quote:
Trainer Ali Bashir knows his fighter Monte Barrett was very upset when he saw him in jump in to stop the fight in the eleventh round, but he had no choice as he watched a 7'2 giant manhandling Barret, who did not have any legs left after being knocked down twice.

All were surprised that Barrett lasted eleven round with WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev, including the HBO announcers and ringside observers in Chicago's Allstate Arena. Despite being outweighed by 100 pounds, and being nearly a foot shorter, Barrett held his own for several rounds.

"I thought Monte was in the fight that is why I let it go as far as it could go," Bashir said. I saw that he was tiring and he was hurt and there was no reason to go on. It was just a risky thing at that point, so I stopped the fight."
Thanks to the boxingscene for that quote.

Holy Crap!

Just watched the fight. I was pulling for Valuev until I saw that he was stuck in the 1-2-3 combination that should have been a big signpost for barrett. Why the hell didn't Barrett work the body?? Look at how much weight Valuev has to move. Barrett should have worked only the body for the first three rounds and brought Valuev down to size..he left him too much strength and got his bell run in the 11th round. Valuev depends on his weight and size to intimidate and, while Barrett showed that he wasn't intimidated at all...he focused more on head shots. Valuev's cranium is not a good target. His body would have been more vulnerable. If Barrett would have just worked inside those long arms and threw short shots to the body, I believe he could have took him. What the hell is the deal with Valuev's trainer anyway. Left-left-right...come on...his combinations were amateur at best. Why does height intimidate? Good psychological victory on Valuev's part though. If you have an opponent that can't invision you on your back...you're halfway there.

Those simple combos is all Valuev needs to do. It also seems to keep him fresh. His stamina was good because he didnt throw abunch of wild punches.

Please if anyone who can fight a smart fight will destroy Valuev!! Yes he's big but he does punch like an amateur fighter, and this works against guys like Barrett who looked like he was in his first fight. His head is the size of a volkswagon so why even go there, even with those crazy looping punches Barrett was throwing he could barely reach the doors on that car.
