That's not my (admittedly tongue in cheek) point though.

My point is this.

Why did the WBC fly so rapidly into the whole Emeritus thing in the first place? What makes Vitlay so different to every other fighter that there has been in the past.

And it's a sly dig at the fact that Vitlay's record as a WBC champ really is no better than Olegs.



Vitlay

Beat Corrie "one shot" Sanders in a title fight (vacant belt)
Beat Danny "Legend Killer" Williams in a title fight (voluntary defence)

Oleg

Beat Hasim "used to be undisputed champ you know" Rahman (Rahman champ)
Beat Peter "WHO?" Okhello in title fight (voluntary)



And that's it.

Losing challenges (no matter how 'valiant' *cough* ) don't count here.



Essentially,

Vitlay has a 66% record in WBC title fights.
Oleg, 100%
