Barrett doesn't have a prayer in the world. He's bringing a knife to a gun fight
Valuev, beat Ruiz on a MD not a unanimous decision. Still as a John Ruiz hater I would like to say that Decision was a bit shady, I actually thought Ruiz controled the fight a little better.milatown said:Nikolay Valuev vs Monte Barrett.

At Rosemont, Ill., Russia’s Nikolay Valuev takes on American Monte Barrett for Valuev's WBA heavyweight title. Valuev, called the “Russian Giant” because he stands 7-feet tall and weighs 320 pounds, is the tallest heavyweight champion in history. Valuev (44-0, 32 KOs) won the title from John Ruiz in December 2005 with a unanimous decision. He has since made one defense, beating Owen Beck by TKO. "I have fought 44 times and have always gone back to my motherland in St. Petersburg a winner,” said Valuev, who is a sportsbook favorite for this bout. Barrett (31-4, 17 KOs) has yet to have a career-defining victory. He will give up 9 inches in height to Valuev and will be a huge underdog play for boxing bettors. “I am hungry and focused. I'm 225 pounds right now, and my heart is 224 of it," Barrett said.

With That Said, I actually like Barrett, but I do not see him winning this fight. I think he can out box the Russian, but I think he will get caught and Valuev will TKO him.
Valuev has not beat any one with anyone either of any sigif.
