Damn, just when you think Vitali can't sink any lower. This is really sad.

I always thought Vitali was going to be stopped in that fight with the right hand. Lennox was starting to land it.

Vitali isn't the one who personally paid him off, but what Lennox is saying is true. It wasn't a smart move from Johnson's part at all. He wanted to fight Lewis after he saw he was vulnerable. In the end that didn't work out.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

PC: You were handling Roy Jones when he captured the heavyweight title. I understand at one point he was very serious about fighting Lewis, Holyfield or Tyson. How close where those fights to being a reality?

MM: When he won the heavyweight championship of the world, he was the king of the mountain. Once we won the heavyweight title, he was the man. It was the ultimate goal. He told me, "Let's go get Lennox Lewis." Lennox Lewis accepted $25 million to fight Roy Jones Jr., but he had one obstacle in front of him and that was HBO had to put him in there against Klitschko. Keep in mind, Klitschko was supposed to fight the kid from Canada [Kirk Johnson]. The kid from Canada pulled out, so HBO was stuck with egg on their face and they needed someone to fulfill that position. Well, Lennox Lewis said, "No man, I'm not going to fight him for that kind of money when next year, ya'll are going to have to pay me a great deal of money. I'll fight him next year." But when I put $25 million on the table, he said, "Let's fight Klitschko now!" Now HBO should have sent me a letter or a check or anything else because I saved them. And Lennox Lewis went in there and he won the fight, but he was embarrassed at how he won the fight. He didn't do as good as he wanted to do, so he retired. So that fight went out of the window.

Klitschko might have paid off Kirk but the reason why Lewis fought Vitali was because of RJJ his manager.

And now comes my joke:It wasn't Vitali who made Lewis retire, Lewis didn't want to fight Roy Jones anymore.

On the whole he was very complimentary about Vitali. I don't get why the fanboys are throwing a tantrum. Also @whomever mentioned it: Vitali himself said that he'd been preparing for years to defeat Lewis.

Unfortunately for Quitali he underestimated the strength of a shot lewis and got his shit pushed in and half his face ripped off.. Que an angry vitali running around the ring crying like a little girl , plans in tatters and out of pocket ..
