Great reflexes. I remember how fast he was to quit after the 9th in the Chris Byrd fight.

Vitali's defense was very underrated.

Why the hell did he let a shot Lewis repeatly hit him in the face though until his skin broke?

Most people who had a boxing lesson can parry and counter...

Just like Bruce lee, the video had to be slowed down so that you could see Vitali's punches.

He looked slow to me during the Lewis fight.

He would be considered higher if he wouldn't have fought terribly bot defensively bot technically in one of the most important fights of his career.

Two weeks to prepare to the fight......
Still, this is only his fault, you don't go to one of the most important fights of your career untrained and with too much self confidence.

Because he was a prick and he considered himself the king of the world; so, he took the fight with two weeks anticipation, and he came to the ring fighting dumbely overaggressive, basically marching forward without even the conditioning.

But that fight teached him to be smarter, and also i think to be more humble, due to the immense opportunity wasted.
