    Hope he is getting paid well 'cos he will probably lose more than a bit of ear!

    $750,000 to $1 million, not bad for a guy who hasn't won a fight for years and who got whipped by Sultan Ibragimov last year.

    Despite his size, Valuev isn't really a big puncher and Holyfield always had a great chin. I don't think it's likely he'll get seriously hurt.

    EDIT: It looks like Holyfield has very little choice but to continue to fight. http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/shared-blogs/ajc/schultz/entries/2008/06/06/difficult_times_for_evander_ho.html

    EDIT2: I see the PPV start was 3 PM EST, but I assume there's some undercards. It's not too late to order!

    According to Russian press reports Valuev basically just stood in the center of the ring without doing much. Hollyfield should've won.

    i'm a huge boxing fan, but this fight was a disgrace.

    holy should have retired about 10 years ago. it's a joke he's even fighting anymore. that said, he probably did enough to win as valuev was godawful.
