I feel really bad about this. Holyfield should be the champion again. He beat Valuev IMO. The Russian mafia must be in on this. There is no other excuse for that lame judging decision.

I hear the "fight" was about as bad as the decision.

and a ''majority decision''.
decisions like this is the reason why more fans are paying to see welterweights/lower fighters fight more than these pathetic heavyweight fights.

I think it's the excitment more than the decisions.

Wow! Holyfield's still alive and actually had a chance? I didn't watch but I was sure he'd get Apollo Creeded in the ring.

I didn't see the fight, but I'm not surprised Holyfield nearly prevailed. It is painful to watch the heavyweight division during this time. Valuev is a modern-day Neanderthal, a hairy, bigger version of Primo Canera, and purely a mediocre fighter at best. Shameful that such a modern day "club fighter" can hold a portion of the title.
