Nikolay Valuev = Really Scary

The LA Times recently did a piece on this guy. I don't follow boxing, but the mere shock vaule is worth the post. The little guy in the picture is another "heavyweight."

Here's a quote from the article:
"Valuev himself strode into the gym recently during his triumphant return to Russia after the title bout, in which he defeated American John Ruiz on a controversial decision in Berlin to become the tallest (7 feet) and heaviest (323 pounds) world champion in history. He's so big he usually steps into the ring over the top rope … so big that the adolescent pugilists at the Stepashkin Club would have barely been able to land a hook as high as his belly, if they had the nerve to try."

I thought the picture was fake, at first. That is disturbing. Did you read what he did to that security guard? "slipped and fell" - RIGHT!

Now that I see this picture every time I look at the blog, I've decided there are two possibilities here: either this guy is bending down and the picture is at the perfect angle so it doesn't seem that way (he can't be that small!!) or the man is little mac, straight from Mike Tyson's Punch Out....the only person who is allowed to fight people 6 times his size....
