    Valuev "Wins" Decision -- Why Are We Not Surprised? 

    He didn’t get a knockout, so the judges KO’d his title reign.

    John Ruiz lost what all reports are calling a highly controversial majority decision to Nicolay Valuev Saturday night at the Max Schmeling Halle in Berlin, Germany. Valuev thus captures the WBA heavyweight belt from Ruiz.

    The story on this fight by the French-based AFP had this headline:

    Valuev wins controversial WBA heavyweight title

    The European-based Reuters described this scene from ringside:

    The sell-out 10,000 crowd in the Max-Schmeling arena booed loudly when the decision was announced even though Valuev, who is 2.13 meter (7ft) and 147 kg (324lbs), is based in Germany.

    We await more detailed reports but once again everything indicates that most Europeans and Americans agreed that another robbery, as had been warned, has occurred in the ring.
