Just to reiterate my point.

8. How long do world class athletes play their sport?
The average world class athlete retires from his sport at the age of 33. Incredibly, the average NFL player is retired by the age of 28, the average world class wrestler by 24, and the average elite gymnast by 19.

COAST CITIES While the list of professional athletes playing past the average retirement age of 33 may contain a few exceptional examples, not only in organized sports but in extreme sports also.

Need more examples? So there goes your re****ed theory that bigger athletes hit there prime in their mid to late 30's. Of course you can't find a link to support that ridiculous notion so I'll just take a "Thank you JAB for once again educating me".

Freakin dope!

When is he making a decision about continuing, anyway?

Thank you JAB for showing us how great Vitali really is by continuing at 41

I had him losing 4 rounds to Byrd. Maybe even 3 rounds to Lewis and chisora.

Whilst he hasn't been knocked down he has twice been stopped and his record against elite punchers is near non-existant as he's rarely faced any.

You could say he fought the most dangerous south paw ever, but that says more about heavyweight southpaws than it does about Vitali.

Sanders had some really nice fights.

Vitali's quality of opposition isn't half as good as Wlad's, but he did dominate everyone he faced (sans the 2 injury losses). So you can say he had a "career of dominance", but you can't say it was against the "best opposition available" because Wladimir fought the much better fighters over the longer stretch of time.

not really, you tried to convince me that 42 year old Vitaly is in the same condition as 37 year old Lewis. And it only works if you take parameter called age out of the function. According to this if Vitaly would come back at 60 instead of 37 he would still be in the same condition lol.

Also, average pro athlete is not 6 foot 8 and 240 + pounds and as I said bigger guys reach prime a lot later then small guys and can fight into late 30s or early 40. If Vitaly was 147 pounds and 5 foot 6 he would be old in early 30s.

Lennox lewis wasn't shot are you kidding me? OK he wasn't clearly in his prime but you can't say he is shot hahaha.

Mate Adamek is a glass jawed joke at HW who got stunned by a jab. He is no-where near Byrd's level.

As for Peter, he had been ruined by Wlad when he fought Vitali and was a shell of his former self.

Poor choices, a better argument might be Sanders although I still put Byrd ahead of him.
