He actually got a bit hostile against Lewis for backing away from the fight, especially during that H.B.O. rant; one of his last as a broadcaster for the network.
What a silly post!
Lewis owed the sport of boxing nothing!
It's been said ten thousand times but Klitty nut huggers can't hear it cos their heads are so far up the KO boys arses that their ears are full of buttucks.
The best version of Vitali I've ever seen was roundly butchered by the worst version of Lennox I've ever seen. Those fluke cuts (note the plural) were caused by punches (remember them). Lennox even took the first 2 rounds off and still had Vitali in la la land by round 5.
Vitali's behaviour after the announcement was shameful and his constant bleating ever since is embarrassing.
