Press Release: According to the Times of London, the stock of WBA heavyweight title holder Nicolay Valuev has just gone up and the man who was once a freak show has now become a legitimate boxing show. Last week, against grossly overmatched Owen Beck, who "had been handpicked to lose" according the Times article circulated by Don King Productions, Valuev entertained the German crowd by holding off an advancing Beck with "one enormous paw." However, the article also claimed that Valuev, an unknown commodity here in America, showed improved speed and looked fitter than when he lifted his title from John Ruiz in December. King, the junior partner behind Wilfried Sauerland in the Valuev business, bragged that Valuev "will be undisputed champion of the whole world." King is Valuev's co-promoter for his next three bouts, but he hopes to be around for longer than that. "There 's a contract of the heart," King said. "He's a good fighter, judge him on his talents. That's why I'm clinging to him, there's no way that I'm going to let him go as long as he remains human."
