I guess you saw the fight differently to me then, the cut changed everything and totally swung the fight in Lewis's favour, and if VITLAY thought it was going to go 12 rounds with that cut then he was delusional - he was lucky to make it to the end of the 6th with it if truth be told.

If he had the mental strength you speak of then he'd have gone out there and got the KO like Marciano always did when he had to. Marciano didn't have a glass heart though I guess.
