Valuev/Haye: Team Valuev unfazed by Haye antics

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.”
