David Haye beats Nikolai Valuev

The British boxer has triumphed in Germany in the WBA heavyweight boxing championship against his Russian opponent and title-holder.

I can't say I'm particularly interested in boxing (the sight of two grown men pummelling each other doesn't appeal to me), but I have to confess to some surprise - I had been doubtful that Haye would survive, never mind win, when I saw their pre-match 'spar' a few days ago.

Moral of the story ... Never judge a book by its cover.
