"Nikolai Valuev will fight John Ruiz for the vacant WBA heavyweight title before August 31. After Ruslan Chagaev pulled out of his mandatory defence against the Russian Giant for the second time in a row, the WBA decided in Buenos Aires on Thursday that the two ex-champions will face each other. “We wanted Nikolai Valuev to fight for the title as soon as possible,” Sauerland managing director Chris Meyer said. “We consider the WBA`s decision a big success.” "

For the love of Dempsey, could't they find ANYONE else for this???

The case FOR Ruiz: coming off two straight wins. Lost title to Valuev via majority decision and lost to Chagaev via split decision, both fights in Germany.

The case AGAINST Ruiz: he's John Ruiz.

The sad fact is, there really isn't anyone better that I can see. Dan Rafael's got Ruiz ranked at #6, and the top five guys are W. Klitschko (fighting Saturday), Peter (locked into fight with V. Klitschko - ugh), Chagaev, Valuev, and Povetkin, who is another of W. Klitschko's mandatories so is basically staying busy until he can cash that in.

The WBA's own rankings are even worse, as they have Kali Meehan #3 and Andrew Golota #6. For reals.

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....


Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

Don't forget Toney vs. Rahman is coming up in a week. If the winner of that manages to look halfway decent, they're right back on the map.

I watched the whole interview with Dana White, and it seemed like a... strange interview (especially for a 21 minute interview). He seemed fairly diplomatic, which I expected, but his repeated "business as usual" claims just seemed odd to me.
