Re: Vitali's losses are to opponents who took fight on less than 14 days notice.
Vitali wasn't even in his prime yet.
Lewis was 37 and was still in his prime when he got his ass whooped by Vitali. He was coming off the win over Tyson. In the Lewis-Tyson post fight interview Lewis said "I'm like fine wine, I get better with age"
Before the Vitali fight, Lewis said "I'm at the peak of my powers, I will keep fighting for many more years"
Lewis was battered from pillar to post, badly hurt several times, outboxed, outskilled, outgunned, outmuscled, outslugged, outlanded in every round, outpointed, outclassed, dominated, emasculated and retired by Vitali.
