The more I think about it the more it becomes obvious that beating Vitali was Lewis' most exciting fight and his best altogether win. Never has Lewis beaten a man who after losing to Lewis went on to be a universally recognized belt holder. Never has Lewis shown more will, heart and determination in a fight.
Don't forget when Lewis outboxed, outjabbed, and outhustled the mismatched Golota.

Vitali is a wasted talent when you consider how little he has achieved. Vitali has always been a class above his brother IMO, you can just see it in the ring, even now, Vitali toys with opponents, is all cool and when he gets hit, he takes it and continues.

Unfortunately, he's had bad luck. Now, people will mention the Lewis, or worse the Byrd fight. Both fights were very winnable if it weren't for injuries/cuts. And really, appart from this dreaded era of HWs and appart from having a brother that's too into boxing, injuries have reduced his legacy.

Wow! Some posters are very close minded. I'm surprised you got to me so soon. You appear very busy on this thread defending Vitaly's honor. Lost my post count somehow, I've been a member for a few years, and watching boxing since the late 70's. And ray rick richard or whatever the **** it is it was still a more entertaining fight. And you can hold class whenever you want, but I'm not going to pay attention. What's with all the name calling? Try having a reasonable conversation. Actually a fight with Lewis and Rick Mercer would be a spectacle. Rick weighs in at about 165 and is a television host. And why do you put yourself through such apparent agravation by posting on this thread that judging by the threads start is a place for fellow "hatters" (that's how long i've been here) of VK.

How about him utterly DESTROYING a still dangerous Samuel Peter after having been retired due to injury for a couple of years. Peter didn't win a minute of that fight. Absolute and total domination.

If you think Peter is nobody.......who today, leaving the K brothers out, would you be 100% certain to beat an in-shape Peter?

Poor Vitali gets a raw deal. He never got a unification fight because of his injury problems and Wladimir being the project. I would like to have seen him smash the other beltholders up and retire as undisputed champ, then let his brother try and claim the belts.

Coming off 4-years retirement, and completely destroying the WBC Champ, Samuel Peter.

Steve Albert: "Peter took a monstrous amount of punishment from Vitali Klitschko, who fought a brilliant fight."

Al Bernstein: " A memorable feat, Vitali Klitschko coming back after nearly four years to regain the title."

Do you think Wladimir has, inadvertently, hindered Vitali's career?

If either brother weren't boxing, the other would have an even stronger hold on the divisions top ranking. But I don't think it's hindered Vitali's, or Wladimir's career to have the other boxing. They've both fought just about everyone they can.

I see the majority of the posters on here have got it wrong . . . it is clearly his *****ing out to Byrd. THIS IS THE HEAVYWEIGHT championship of the world . . . you do not give it up to a feather fisted fighter like Byrd on the stool. He was just lucky he did not fight Razor that night because he would have been retired for good!

What does an in-shape Peter have to do with the fat **** that VITLAY fought?

Has Peter even won a fight since he fought VITLAY? Can't have been all that good to begin with, surely?
