Pele Reid begs to differ...

Yes, he lost twice... LTKOby9 to Chris Byrd (torn rotator)
Perhaps at best showing he lacked the mental capabilities of a true fighter, and at worse showed himself to have a bit of dog.

and LTKOby6 to Lennox Lewis (cuts).
There is no need for the (cuts), it was no headbutt, but punches that caused the referee to save Vitali.

Vitali, like Vlad have yet to show the 'X Factor' that could lead to them being considered with the cream of the division. They have 'eventually' taken control of a very poor era. Also as non 'classic' fighters, they also have to accept they need to be that bit more special to show the sceptics they are for real.
