Nikolai Valuev vs. the Almasty (Russian Bigfoot)

Former Russian heavyweight boxer, Nikolai Valuev (50-2, 34 KOs) hung up the boxing gloves in 2009. The former WBA World Heavyweight Champion and seven feet tall man fought many of the top heavyweights of his time including, John Ruiz, Ruslan Chagaev, Evander Holyfield, and David Haye. Following his retirement from boxing, Valuev entered the world of politics. He holds the position of a deputy in the Russian State Duma, which the narrator of the show explains is the Russian equivalent of a member of Parliament in Great Britain.

In 2013, he appeared in an episode of the "hit television show," Bigfoot Files. Apparently some of his constituents were concerned about a Almasty or Russian Bigfoot sighting in the area... Valuev being the "Almasty enthusiast" he is, made it a point to visit the eyewitnesses, three boys who live in an area that appears to be the "Deep South of Russia." Valuev earned his paycheck that day by "confirming" the creature in the video was not a bear, and scaring the children into promising to not swear anymore. After watching this video, we have some questions for Bigfoot Files...

Have you ruled out Valuev as being the Almasty caught on film in this video? Perhaps his duties as a Russian Deputy don't take up enough of his time. Perhaps he "moonlights" as a mysterious monster that runs around in the Russian wilderness. Have you seen this guy? We wouldn't want to run into him in a dark alley...

Go to the 31:00 minute mark of the video, and thank us later wasting part of your Friday!
