You mean Vitali was ROBBED of a win when he and Lewis fought, right?

I think Vitali would have been ROBBED of an eye if the fight continued much longer.

But here is the thing Drew,
being a fan of Klitschko and Lewis (or any other heavy) is not mutually exclusive.....the 'klittard' or 'klitites' as Suge White called them, i find to be mainly trolls....there are many i would label trolls on the opposite side too...
edit: I might add that you be a die hard fan and think another fighter gives a brother a tough/challenging fight....not a blasphemy to do so

I'm not here to be racist or battle with the Brits. I joined this site to learn more about the fighters I love to follow and discover others who make this sport one if not thee greatest sport on Earth.
Which is a perfectly legitimate stance to take. As long as you keep off of revisionist retards like Bremen who actually believes that prime Lewis would lose to Vitali despite having beaten Vitali on his worst night, you'll be fine among us.

Who care´s about the scorecards.

It was a TKO win.

IMO TKO 3 because of the cuts the fight should have been stopped in the third 3.

Vitali said the stoppage against Charr was legal because of the cut, so the Lewis fight had to be stopped after 3 rounds.

Lewis TKO 3.

He tested positive for a banned substance in 1996 when still an amateur and was instantly thrown off the Ukrainian boxing team for the Atlanta Olympics.
Klitschko had planned to box at super-heavyweight while his younger brother, Wladimir, was entered to compete at the 201lb heavyweight limit.
Wladimir, who was struggling to make his weight, took over the super-heavyweight slot and went on to win the gold medal.
"Their dream was to go to the Olympics and win gold medals together," said Vitali Klitschko's spokesman, Bernd Boente.
Vitali was tested positiv in 1995 at the Military Wordlchampionship in Rome.

Yes. Lewis robbed him by repeatedly punching Vitaly in the head.

Frank Bruno was up on the cards against Lewis too from memory.

Lewis lost to Vitali and Bruno while he has two wins each against Rahman and McCall. On Planet Klit that is.

Vitali wanted Wlad to quit before and DURING the Peters I Fight.




"Everyone in that camp was paranoid and didn't have much faith," Steward said. "Vitali told him he should quit. But we needed to take the risk. Never once did we panic. He showed a lot in that fight.



before the start of the 12th round, Vitali questioned Steward's decisions and wondered if his brother could finish the fight. Instead, Klitschko landed his best punch of the night that round, a perfectly placed left hook -- a punch Steward had been working on with him -- that sealed an improbable unanimous decision win.

Is Barkley more "skilled" than Hearns?
Does this mean Cunningham really TKO Troy Ross?
