Lewis was NOT planning to retire in 2003. The only reason Lewis retired was so that he did not have to face Vitali again.

no, stick to the facts - the only reason Vitali became champ was that he did not have to face Lewis again.

Vitali got booed out of his HOME ARENA (Germany, since the ***** ran away from Kiev and relocated like a proper immigrant)

after the mother****er disgracefully threw in the towel against a former 160 pound Middleweight.

Forget Prime Lewis.

I don't even know if Prime Vitali could have taken Young Lewis of the Ruddock days.

However bare in mind, that a year later Lewis would have been 38,pushing 39.

At some point a guy just has to walk away from the game. Lewis picked the PERFECT time.

Shouldnt this be in the TKO 6 thread??
This is what I don't understand from fanboys who insist he should have rematched. So many fighters hang around to long and either lose or do permanent physical damage to themselves. Lewis left after beating one of the best fighters of the next era and still has all his senses and money. In boxing that is the perfect ending to a career, I'd figure everyone could understand it and would want the same for their fighter too. I would have respect for ANY fighter choosing to close out his career that way.

He knew that he already beat Vitali at his worst so he decided walk away as one of the best ever, the best of his era and the best fighter that night.

Vitali gets beat by clear UD or late soppage!

Going by your logic Hasim Rahman retired Vitaly for 4 years because Vits was scare of him right? Vittles only came back when he realized "The Rock" was just a shell of his former self and that he would be safe against the current crop of tomato cans.

Maybe because his legacy as one of the ATG heavyweights was secure
Maybe because he wanted to leave as undisputed champion
Maybe because he had just beaten his closest rival by stoppage.

I mean...Im just guessing here.
This right here is all anyone needs to know as to why Lewis retired.

Klit fans just love their double standards!!! Lewis accomplished everything and beat the best, but its not ok to change his mind. Vittles has NEVER beaten the best and fought tomato cans since coming back. He said he'd fight Haye because it was personal and it had nothing to do with money, yet negotiations cant get done because of money. He said he was going to get his title back after losing to Byrd, yet he never did that or sought the rematch. That all ok though because you will try and figure out a way to spin that hypocrisy, right? Freakin clowns!
