Needed - A New Weight Class?

At 5'10" and 144 pounds sopping wet, I've always believed in the idea of athletes competing by class. My partner is 6'7" and over twice my weight. I suggested we might want to play some racketball one day. He asked me if my life insurance was paid up.

Well this guy is Nikolay Valuev, crowned in December as Russia's first World Boxing Assn. heavyweight champion. He is 5" taller than my partner at 7 feet. He weighs 323 and it would appear none of that is fat.

HT to who sourced it at the LA Times.
