Valuev, 314.6; Haye, 216.7
Heavyweight beltholder Nikolai Valuev outweighed challenger David Haye by 97.9 pounds at Friday's weigh-in for their showdown that takes place at the Versischerung Arena in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday.
Valuev (50-1, 34 KOs), of St. Petersburg, Russia, weighed in at 314.6 pounds, while Haye (22-1, 21 KOs), of London, England, tipped the scales at a much-lighter 216.7 pounds.
Valuev, who is at least 9 inches taller than the 6-foot-3 Haye, is a slight betting underdog to the former cruiserweight champ, but late money has come in for the Russian giant, who is the far more experienced boxer.
