RUSSIAN giant Nikolai Val- uev has shrugged off the stream of insults being issued by David Haye before their clash for the WBA heavy- weight crown on Saturday, insisting: I must be dignified and act in a special way. The abuse coming out of the Haye camp in Nuremburg is hard to ignore. Quite apart from the stock Im going to slay the beast from the East, the 29-year-old Londoner has seen fit to mention the 7ft 2in Russian smells like a dog and is the ugliest human being Ive ever seen. Haye, a mere 11 inches shorterthanthecolossusfrom St Petersburg, added: The one part of this fight Im not looking forward to is getting in the clinches with this big, hairy beast. He is the ugliest Iveeverseenintheflesh.This guy is a freak show. Valuev, who weighs in at 23st as opposed to Hayes hardly anorexic 16st, says simply: I must be dignified and behave in a special way. In Russia and in Germany a lot of boys and girls look to me, at what I am doing and what I am saying. So I have to act in a good way, to set an example. In fact, Valuev may not be the ogre he is being painted for pay-per-view purposes. Yes,headmits,whenasked about pictures of him toting a gun earlier in the week, Hunting is my hobby. I fish everything that is swimming in the water, and I hunt every- thing that is flying in the air and stepping through the woods. But I hunt only those fish and animals that Im allowed to. In hunting with boxing you needpatience,composure,and the ability to wait for the right moment to strike. Even more worrying comes the information that he wooed his wife Galina with his own poetry and that he likes to read the works of Tolstoy and Chekov: They help develop me and my life. I read a lot of yourArthurConanDoyle.You know, Sherlock Holmes. And HG Wells. And the fight itself? Valuev, winner of 50 of his 51 bouts, says simply: Technically, I am much better. And I will fight my fight against Haye. I know just what I have to do.
