Valuev-Chagaev on April 14!
Sauerland Event will stage Nikolai Valuev´s first mandatory title defense in Germany on April 14. The Berlin-based promoters today came to terms with Universum Box-Promotion, who represent top-ranked challenger Ruslan Chagaev. The WBA had originally scheduled a purse bid for tomorrow after the two camps had failed to find common ground during their initial negotiations. "This won´t be necessary any more. We have come to terms with Universum today," said Sauerland managing director Chris Meyer. "Of course we wanted to present the clash on one of our fightcards. We were also prepared for the purse bid but after reaching a contractual agreement, there is no need for it. We are staging the fight and we will work closely together with Universum."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Russian Giant last defended his WBA title in Basle on January 20 when he clinched a third-round TKO victory over Jameel McCline. Chagaev became mandatory challenger back in November following a split decision victory over John Ruiz. It´s the first meeting of the two heavyweights. Valuev, unbeaten in 47 fights (34 KOs), is just two wins shy of Rocky Marciano´s dream record. Chagaev has won 22 of 23 fights (one draw) along with 17 KOs. He gives up 10.6 inches in height. The biggest and tallest champion of all time will keep training in St. Petersburg until the end of next week before continuing his preparations in Berlin´s Max-Schmeling-Gym. "I take this fight against Chagaev very seriously," he said. "Everything´s going well in practice. I am in very good shape. I will be ready come April 14."

This guy is trash he will never fight a meaningful fight. His record is padded just like Rocky's was. He can go 100-0 and still not fight a top compeditor.

Is this Chageuv guy really a threat or is this another joke.
He dosn't have any size and other then Ruiz not much experience.It's hard to get excited about this unusual Valuev fellow other then curiosity.
Hey Tommy why don't you get rid of that little dance scene you have on your posts and put up a boxing image.:) :eek:
