A Not-So-Golden Boy 

Seven-foot, two-inch Nikolai Valuev, who won the WBA heavyweight title in December from John Ruiz with a highly disputed majority decision victory, has nonetheless been receiving mainly sympathetic coverage from the mainstream media, especially in Europe. But now the glitter seems to be wearing off his golden image.

Valuev, writes Andrew Osborn in the Feb. 6 online edition of the UK's The Independent, "has been accused of beating up a 61-year-old parking attendant, and murky reports have started to emerge of his moving in criminal circles in the 'wild' 1990s."

We doubt we have heard the last of the escalating controversies surrounding Valuev.
