Nikolai Valuev vs John Ruiz 1+2
Valuev beats Ruiz by MD to become World Heavyweight champion, terrible fight as you'd expect, no quality, lots of holding and no action, Valuev jabbed his way to the title, dropped a couple right hands, the best one probably with about 30 seconds left in fight, i probably preferred Ruiz's work, he let go bursts of combinations, not always that effective but he outworked Valuev in most rounds, who cares though it was pish
Valuev wins the rematch to win the vacant World Heavyweight title, another absolutely woeful fight, equally as bad as the first one and played out pretty much the same, Valuev big cumbersome jabbing his way to a dull UD, Ruiz fighting in small spurts letting his hands go to no effect, there were times when both men stood and exchanged but both are that slow they missed with every shot every time, it was like both were fighting underwater, just terrible, great if you like hugs
