I really see this as Valuev cashing in his chips and calling it a day.
The guy suffers from Acromegaly....which NEVER gets better with age. It's the reason for his measured opposition, time between bouts, etc.
He wants one big last pay day before hanging them up. He desrves it....other than height he has very little skill and actually achieved more than he ever should have in the sport. He was a weak champion during a weak HW era...his sheer size was the only interesting aspect of any of his fights.
All that being said....I think , that despite all that....he actually stays in the whole fight with Vitali and losses a UD.
I don't see Vitali KOing this monster. Vitali has looked less than steller to me in his last few fights....he looks slow and old...because he is.
This will be an instance where he is in with a guy that is actually bigger than he is.....
We all know how much respect both Klits give to their opposition...opposition that is usually smaller and less talented...so you can imagine the level of respect Vitali is going to give to a guy that has the physical advantage.
It will be a BORING jab fest that Vitali will win.
The Germans will sprout a huge boner for this while the rest of the world ignores it.
Gotta love Klitchko "dominance".....
Although it would be strange and a little funny to see Valuev be KO'd, I hope it doesn't happen as I actually have a lot of respect for him.
I know a lot of people hate him as he's boring - and I too would love to see someone that big just get in the ring and start swinging - but he's never really done anything wrong or acted like a dickhead.
Like BG said, Vitali will probably win a UD.
Jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, for 12 rounds.
