So it sounds as if he's not throwing in the towel, just yet. He will still go ahead the his comeback, but for some reason, I agree with ESPN,in that I also doubt that he'll fight McCline in his first fight back. Not sure why, but I think they'll fight someone else, or maybe jump right to the Peter Oleg winner.
I disagree about vit coming back. He's had 2 years since former chronic injuries forced him out to heal his body. The reason for this latest injury
is because he went into full training for a real fight, and his body broke
down. This wasn't a freak injury for vit. It's his body tellinmg him "no more" Vitaly was an undisputed ring mag hvy champ. He should just do like lennox and call it a career.

And that seems to be what he plans on doing.

The injury is a common one, I read, so it may not be as bad as you all are making it out to be. A torn knee and a back injury does not mean his body is falling apart, which is a big overly dramatic, don't you think?
If it was just one injury, then that's another story.

But look at his last 2 scheduled fights. He postponed or cancelled the Rahman fight 3 or 4 times (I lost count) in a period of a few months.

After taking time off, he comes back, then gets injured AGAIN training for a fight.

Fighting for a living takes a toll on one's body. Not everyone can be like an Archie Moore and fight so often and for so long.

This seems more like a sign that his body is betraying him, as it did a couple years ago when he was supposed to fight Rahman.

If I was a boxer or promoter, no way would I sign a fight with Vitlay right now.

Absolutely no chance of getting paid - and it leaves you unavailable to take on other, money earning fights.

Would you sit around earning nothing waiting and seeing if Vitlay recovered?

Only way anyone should sign a fight with him, is if there is some form of compensation payment if Vitlay has to back out again.
