Klitschko-Valuev in 2010?

By Alexey Potapov

Former WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev (50-2, 34 KOs) has told that he’s looking to fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) in 2010. “I wish to fight against Vitali Klitschko,” said the Russian Giant. “It’ll be an entertaining fight. It’ll be more interesting than when I fought David Haye. The whole fight he just ran from me. Vitali is a great champion. I guarantee it’ll be a big fight. Vitali, I’m ready to fight. Are you?” Valuev lost his WBA world title against David Haye by majority decision in November, while Klitschko won a unanimous decision over Kevin Johnson in Berne, Switzerland last weekend. “For me it’s important to meet with David Haye so the Klitschko brothers can get all the world champion belts, but a fight against Nikolay Valuev would be interesting to millions of boxing fans,” Klitschko told “But if Haye continues to duck me, my team will begin negotiations for a fight against Valuev in 2010.”
