Nikolai Valuev Remarks on Maskaev Victory Over Rahman

15.08.06 - Here's a short statement from Nikolai Valuev about the Maskaev-Rahman bout: "Iím practicing in my training camp in Armenia at the moment, which is 2000 meters high, for the preparation for my fight with Monte Barrett. That's why I didnít have the chance to see Olegís fight on television. Still, I was certain that Oleg would win the title, which is something that I mentioned before.

I want to congratulate Oleg and wish him all the best. He is, so we say in Russian, "Molodets" (English translation: great guy or well done.) "Now, all the heavyweight champions come from the former Soviet Union., which shows that the East European fighters have a lot of power. The people in Russia are proud about that, and, of course, I will do my all to defend my title successfully in the United States, when I take on Monte Barrett."
