Waiting for Johnny and Nicolay 

(photo from Boxen.com)

While the American television networks continue to devalue the heavyweight division by refusing to air Saturday's WBA title defense by John Ruiz in Germany against Nicolay Valuev, you can see some preview footage online.

Boxen.com , the web site of Valuev's German promoter/manager Wilfried Sauerland (yeah, they're the same there) has clips of Valuev's last fight with Larry Donald on October 1.

Valuev won a majority decision in that one over Donald, whose role is basically a gatekeeper for aspirants seeking title shots.

Even though only a few clips are shown, you can clearly see Valuev's version of defense includes no head movement at all and moving straight back, when he bothers to move at all, after Donald's jabs.

Let's just hope that the verdict is fair and the best man wins (and that Frosty the Snowman doesn't melt this spring).
