Vitali is no doubt a proud man but a man can admit his weaknesses, mistakes and defeats. This doesn't mean he's not a very good boxer, I just question his character a wee bit more than I used to.
Denying a ko is stupid by Vitali, you would remember the name of the guy who ko'ed you, but is there any more source than this one article? Did he deny it in his biography?
