8th round.

Then he wakes up, and later on that day gets battered in the actual bout.

He does seem to lack the power you'd think a man of his size would have, but he is not entirely without power.

He did drop Byrd with one good shot, and also held his own, pretty well, against the slick Byrd. That is saying something, as McCline is not known as being any kind of skilled boxer, but he is fairly fast handed and skilled. Also, we know he was getting to Valuev in the second and third rounds of that fight, and was doing what many could not against Valuev.

So I think McCline is a very ballsy fight for a comeback fighter like Vitali who has been out almost three years.

Vitali could have picked a Rydell Booker type opponent as a comeback, as many others have.

If Vitali has much of anything left, he should win. If not, McCline may have one of the best wins of his career. Kudos to Vitali for not picking a safe return fight.
I always saw Mccline as some sort of journeyman haha
I think he's up there in the middle. But I DO consider this as a VERY safe fight (of course considering that anything can happen in boxing)

McCline is a big joke. Vitali Klitschko is going to give him a beating and I look for McCline to quit on his stool.

McCline by tko in round 6. Vitali will slip on McCline's tears and twist his knee - again.

You guys bash and batter McCline, but here's a guy with zero amateur career and a very late start in boxing that molded himself into a heavyweight contender and beat some top guys like Goofi, Briggs, Grant, and coming within a whisker of beating Byrd for a world title.

Sure, he's not as aggressive as he should be, but he also has a fraction of the ring experience of the Klits.

I would say, perhaps, the 23rd round.

That's a guess of when Vitali would become bored of watching McCline recover from being knocked out, takes a nap, McCline wakes up and pretends he threw a punch to down Vitali, a new ref is brought in and the ref counts to 10.

In reality, Vitali within 8, and probably less. Vitali has something to prove and JM is looking for a paychceck, I think.

This is a very interesting fight. Vitali will definitely be ranked in my Top10 if he beats McCline impressively.
