Default Re: Would Vitali have lasted the whole 12 due to the state of his face?

Lennox took the best Vitali had to give, withstood it and was coming back stronger than Vitali could handle - as evidenced by Vitali holding on in the final round of the fight in the above GIF - no way does Vitali last the full 12 with cuts that bad against Lennox, Lennox was powerful enough to make those cuts so much worse than they were.

Without the cuts Vitali might last 12 rounds but he was gassed by the end of the 6th, he'd thrown so much into trying to knock Lennox out early that he didn't have much more to give, so those early rounds he won would mean little with Lennox coming on the stronger as the fight progressed.
