Default Re: Prime corrie sanders vs vitali

Whether Corrie was prime or not wasn't his major issue. Training for the fight was. A fully focused properly trained Sanders would have done a lot better in the Vitali fight than the one that showed up, that's pretty obvious. It was his terrible stamina as much as it was Vitali's recuperative skills that lost him that fight. He was huffing and puffing like mad after like the fourth round, and barely had the strength to keep his arms up. Would it have been enough to get him the win? Not sure. I doubt it. Corrie had beastly punching power and great handspeed for a big man, but he was pretty crude, and I think Vitali would have figured him out enough to take a decision or a late stoppage. Corrie would have posed a threat at any stage though.
