Douglas had a better jab , footwork, defence and combination punching than Vitali and could actually fight to a gameplan.
Vitali just pawed at Lewis with uneduacted pressure and his mess of a face was the result.
You assess those fights and its clear Douglas was the higher skilled and better fighter and would of beat Vitali hands down and possibly Lewis of that night as well.
