I may be in the minority here, but I don't think Valuev is bad for boxing. He is a well spoke, intelligent guy who trains very hard and works at improving his technical skills. He may be freakish in his size but he's a human being and deserves as much respect as the next guy for lacing them up. He's no worse than Ruiz, Rahman, or other clowns we've had parading around as title holders.

At least it seems like he is really putting forth an effort to try to get better unlike the fat,unmotivated James Toney or the one punch wonder Rahman.For what it's worth I don't believe he had an amateur career.Valuev really isn't that good but I like the big lug.Let's not kid ourselves.The heavyweight division is scary bad now and Valuev is a fortunate recipient of that.However,I for one would be interested seeing him fight Klitchko.
