Valuev arrives in NYC - Valuev vs Barrett

28.08.06 - Legendary promoter Don King will welcome undefeated WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev to the United States with a giant-sized media blitz to announce his upcoming "Big Red October" heavweight fight against Monte "Two-Gunz" Barrett at the the kick-off press conference on Wednesday, Aug. 30. Valuev's day begins with breakfast at the Regency Hotel with Russian ambassador Vitali Churkin; followed by King introducing the giant to longtime friend Donald J Trump at Trump Tower; and a trip to the top of the famed Empire State Building.

Already the tallest and heaviest world heavyweight champion in history, weighing in at an astonishing 325 pounds and standing at an incredicle 7 feet tall, Americans will get their first chance to see new champion Valuev as he steps over the ropes entering the ring to face Barrett on October 7th at Allstate Arena in Chicago or live on HBO. The media tour will also make stops in Chicago and LA.
