Valery Brudov (born November 27, 1976 in Novosokolniki, Pskov, Russia) is a professional boxer.
He turned pro in 1999 winning his first 30 contests. This garnered him a WBC regional title and winning a WBA eliminator.
His first shot at a world title came against Virgil Hill for the vacant Regular title in 2006, after Jean-Marc Mormeck was promoted to Super Champion. Valery lost a lopsided decision to the veteran. Hill was inactive for the rest of the year and Brudov scored a TKO over Luis Andres Pineda in December to become the inaugural Interim Champion. That reign only last six months when he lost a split decision to Firat Arslan. He challenged Guillermo Jones for the full championship in 2010, but was stopped in eleven rounds.
