Bowe would be up in his chest quicker than Lewis was, and then Vitali would fall apart.
That arching overhead right only gets there if it isn't blocked....and Vitali WOULD block it.
Shall we take this the whole distance?
The fight would never have happened. Vitali's KO percentage is too damned high. Riddick left the punchers for Lennox to handle.
