Nikolai Valuev – Boxing

Nikolai Valuev, aptly named ‘The Russian Giant,’ was the Andre of the boxing world. Wrestling is tough, but at least that we know to be scripted. In a boxing ring, imagine having to go toe to with a seven-foot 328-lb behemoth throwing punches so hard it wouldn’t be of much help to block. If you thought he was all muscle and no skill, maybe his 50-2 record will change your mind. In fact, he’s the tallest, heaviest heavyweight the boxing world has ever seen.
