Klitschko Camp Response

“That was eight months ago for a stadium fight,” said Bernd Bönte, Managing Director of the Klitschko Management Group. “Now for weeks we offered them 1.5 million and that’s it. Still more than he gets or even got in any other fight. Valuev comes from a clear defeat against Haye, and all but the judges saw a loss against Holyfield. This is a typical King game. He has nowhere to go. Austin fights Solis for the mandatory position and Valuev has two options left: fight Vitali or fight Haye in a rematch. But we will definitely not raise the money. If Valuev wouldn’t be over seven foot we wouldn’t even discuss a fight. He can take it or fight Haye again.”

Valuev will accept $2.5 million

“No more lies, K2,” Team Valuev said today. “No more posturing. No more subterfuge. No more deceit.” Team Valuev announced today that they will accept an offer made by K2 Promotions for former two-time World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Nikolai “Russian Giant” Valuev (50-2, 34 KOs), from St. Petersburg, Russia., to face World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (40-2, 38 KOs), from Ukraine. Promoter Don King said much misinformation has been disseminated regarding his position and statements pertaining to Valuev, the fighter he represents with Sauerland Event. “Due to many incorrect representations in the past, I want to make it perfectly clear that K2 Promotions has offered Nikolai Valuev $2.5 million to face Vitali Klitschko, and on behalf of Team Valuev, we are accepting their offer. Nikolai Valuev is the pride of Russia and the Russian people, and he wants to fight for his country and his fans. I hope K2 keeps their word. I hope we are done with the excuses, be they physical, financial or otherwise. Let’s get it on. Let’s go to the mat. My man Niko is going to knock Vitali out.”
