Nicolay Valuev v Evander Holyfield

Just about to get going as both men are entering the ring...

Not sure if any broadcasters have picked this up in the UK, but at least it's at a sensible time for us...

Valuev is massive...

Think it's a bridge too far for Holyfield, but it'll be interesting to see what he does.

http://liveonsat.com/boxing.php Doesn't look like it's on in the UK...or on Radio 5...

Well Holyfield, kept dancing and nipping in on the counter and stayed out if trouble...

Valuev was far too slow and Holyfield kept him guessing by jumping in now and then and getting in some decent shots.

Somehow Valuev got the decision...boo's in the stadium.

Farce...

That was probably the worst fight I've ever seen followed by the worst decision I've ever seen.
