Ruiz or Valuev?

Postby JRM4833 » Fri Dec 16, 2005 11:12 am

John Ruiz (41-5-1) is defending his title tomorrow night against Nikolay Valuev. Ruiz is a big guy ... for sure. But he's flat out dwarfed by Valuev, who is 43-0 and would become the tallest and heaviest champion of all time. So who wins?

John "The Quiet Man" Ruiz: 33, 6'2", 240, 78" reach.

Nicolay "The Beast From The East" Valuev: 32, , 7", 324 lbs., 85" reach.

Has anyone ever seen the Russian fight? The guy has come out of nowhere. He could be a legit beast if he can box but he is more likely to be a circus act (he actually did work in the circus).

I haven't seen him fight and I'm pretty sure we won't be seeing him tomorrow night. From what I can tell it's not on television.

Russians are insane. I expect him to pull a Ivan Drago vs. Apollo Creed
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

8-o

Valuev is huge! 8-o

Can't believe I haven't heard of him or seen him before. He's 43-0? I'd give him the vote, but who has he beaten? :-?

I bet this would be a good fight to see. :-?

I never watch boxing and have never heard of either of these guys but I would put a lot of money on that Nicolay guy. Why are tey fighting if Nicolay has like an extra 100 lbs. over him?
