BERLIN (AP) -- WBA heavyweight champion John Ruiz should have no problem finding challenger Nikolay Valuev -- a 7-footer weighing 330 pounds.

"He's got a head the size of a Volkswagen," Ruiz said Wednesday. "I can't miss hitting him."

Dubbed "The Beast from the East," Valuev is 43-0 and will be the tallest and heaviest champion of all time if he beats Ruiz (42-5-1) on Saturday night.

I hope this guy takes care of Ruiz and beats him. Then maybe Ruiz will quit the sport for good!

Ruiz is the biggest fraud the heavyweight division has even seen (and thats saying something). He's garbage and I cannot wait until he is finally retired. He's trying to front like James Toney only beat him cause he was juiced LMAO, James Toney would have taken Ruiz when he was a middleweight. I'm not pro-Russia or anything but I hope this guy waxes Ruiz. I'd much rather see this guy fight again after Saturday then bum a$$ Ruiz!
