Team Valuev unfazed by Haye

WBA Heavyweight Champion Nikolai Valuev (50-1, 34 KOs) is unfazed by David Haye´s latest antics, insisting he could not care less about the challenger´s constant provocations. Last week, the 29-year-old (22-1, 21 KOs) once again insulted the biggest and tallest champion of all time at a press conference in England. Valuev barely took any notice – he gave up caring about his opponent a long time ago. “I don’t really care about what he says or does,” Valuev stated. “I cannot take him seriously. When I first heard about the t-shirts where he chopped the Klitschkos, I thought ‘Oh my God, another idiot in our world.’ He can say whatever he likes – it will not get him my title.”

Kalle Sauerland, Valuev´s promoter, found clearer words. “Haye’s behaviour is very strange and not normal at all. I think one German phrase sums it up well: ‘1,000 volts, but no light’.”

Valuev will soon wrap up his preparation in Kienbaum to then continue with sparring in Berlin´s famous Max Schmeling Gym. “Everything has been going very well thus far,” the Russian Giant added. “I will be in perfect shape on November 7. Let’s see what Haye has to say after our meeting in the ring – I doubt it will be much.”
