The Klitschkos vs Valuev - what would've happened?

Despite being seen as a bit of a freak show and mostly relying on his size to win fights, Nikolay Valuev wasn't that bad and it's a shame one of these fights was never made.

Vitali was inactive/retired/'champion in recess' around the time where Valuev was probably at his best so I guess that fight was always unlikely to happen but had it not been for promotional differences then a Wladimir Klitschko vs Valuev fight might have been made.

How do you feel each of the Klitschko brothers would've fared against the man mountain? Are you disappointed neither ever took place?

He'd cause both problems imo, he's what 8 inches taller than Wlad with a much longer reach and his jab wasn't terrible, I do think he could jab with Wlad a bit, obviously he's got a granite chin and Wlad wouldn't throw the right much because in close he wouldn't have his ability to lean, with Valuev havign 60lbs on him. Wlad would have to move a lot and try to win on the jab imo.

Awkward fight, pick the Klits to win but wouldn't bet on it, as strange as it sounds
