Vitali is a titlist, not a champion.

Marciano won all of his bouts clearly and retired as champ.

Tell that to floyd/broner they got their ego so far up their ass they wont know what hit em when it does.Floyd knows he lost to castillo but won't ever admit it,he sure as hell started managing his career a lot better.As for broner he really feels he wont ever lose till Matthysse KO's his lights out or somebody gets to him before that,can't say nobody warned em though shouldn't come off as a surprise when it happens.Not a knock on them just to knock em of their imaginary cloud & bring em back down to earth, no man is unbeatable plain & simple.

I thought that Lewis turned his face into hamburger and stopped him halfway through the fight.

Exactly, if that carried on, Vitali's career would have ended that night and we would only be talking about one Klitschko today.

But you also can't have the mentality of finding it okay to lose

It all depends on how you lost.

He knows its a possibility each time he fights, thats why hes as sharp as he is. Hes too smart to think otherwise.

But the point is, you answerd his question with Mayweather. And its not true. Mayweathers 0 already has controversy.
My old coach trained him in the 96 Olympics, apparently Floyd had some VERY bad nerves. Before his fight with the Cuban, he was growing concerned by the sounds of the pads in the Cuban's locker room..Floyd counters this by his large entourage and ****y attitude..it's all an act

Maybe I'm biased, but I didn't see Calzaghe lose a fight. you could make a case that Hopkins and Reed were close to a draw, but Joe certainly didn't get beat.

He wasn't prepared to lose and that's why he retired when he did.

Fighters care tooo much about the 0...

All the greatest have losses... why? - Because they have balls and are willing to step in the ring with any mother****er at any time.
