Valuev, who won the WBA belt from John Ruiz in December 2005, made three successful defences before Ruslan Chagaev clinched a close majority decision in April. "I have learned from the first loss of my career," Valuev stated.
"I have something to prove and the fight against Bergeron will be the first step. I will beat him no matter what." The Russian Giant (46-1, 34 KOs) has nothing but the best memories of Oldenburg. "Thatīs where I won the eliminator against Larry Donald back in October 2005. It was a tough fight. On September 29, I will again put myself into a position to fight for a world title."
Valuev is sure he will take care of business against Bergeron, a 34-year-old Canadian southpaw who is undefeated in 27 fights (19 KOs). "It will be an interesting fight but I will prevail," said Valuev.
