Klitschko's Team Stands Firm With Valuev

There have been ongoing negotiations for a fight between current WBC champ Vitali Klitschko and former WBA champion Nicolai Valuev. Vitali has given a lot more than he was intending to offer Valuev to begin with ($1 million to now $2.5 million), but still Valuev's team does not thing that is enough. Team Valuev also wants to share money for TV rights in the United States and Russia.

Here's what Klitschko's manager Bernd Bönte had to say about the fight:

"Our offer is very high. We are not going to make any further concessions. So either Valuev takes 1.8 million euros [2.5 million] - or the fight bursts."
