Vitali Klitschko vs Lennox Lewis
Vitali took the fight on just 10 days notice.
Vitali was clearly winning the fight 4-2 on all 3 scorecards at the time of the controversial bullshit doctor stoppage. Lewis barely survived the 2nd round and almost got KO'd, he was out on his feet, badly hurt, holding on for dear life, wobbling everywhere and staggering around the ring like a drunk. Lewis was badly hurt several times in the fight, he was battered from pillar to post, outslugged, outgunned, outmuscled, outskilled, outboxed, outlanded in every round, dominated and outclassed by Vitali.
Lewis was exhausted, worn down and hurt from the accumulation of punches and was ready to get KTFO again, he collapsed onto his stool at the end of the 6th round, Vitali was clearly the fresher of the two, he would've KO'd Lewis for sure if the fight had continued.
Vitali got robbed. The corrupt doctor and ref were on Lennox's payroll. It should've been a TD6 win for Vitali.
