No such thing in boxing. Come out the game with a little money and your brain intact its a victory. I hope Kelly has a great life, ill remember the excitement he brought to the sport

Lewis made all his rematches!! Lewis lost two times and in the rematch he won.

Lewis won against Vitali, so it would not have been a rematch for Lewis.
No need for Lewis because he won clearly!!! TKO 6. VitaliŽs face was a bloddy mass and he was ready to get koŽed in the 7th. Watch the gif. Vitali was done.

TKO 6.

Lewis retired as one of the greatest Champion of all the time.

Vitali isn't even retired yet. I think Byrd getting clowned by a 1 armed Vitali contributed to Byrd's retirement.

Vitali still hasn't retired. However, if Vitali did retire it wouldn't count at all. First, Vitali is 41 years old so after the age of 40 in boxing there is no such thing as being prematurely retired. Also, Haye losing to Wlad clearly means that he is no longer a threat in the division.

LOL, Lewis won clearly? Lewis got his ass beat down from pillar to post and lost more rounds. Vitali was clearly beating Lewis down and the scores represent that: 4-2.

And no, Vitali was not going to lose. Any experienced boxing fan knows that a fighter coming back after losing the first half of a fight never really happens. Considering that Lewis was also facing Vitali and that he almost was knocked out multiple times throughout the fight it's actually fairly simple to say that Lewis was going down in the next couple of rounds. Regardless, Vitali was on his way to a win but Lewis got the gift victory. However, he refused the rematch and his legacy as a coward was cemented.

There is no such thing as premature retirement. Who the hell do you think you are. Guy should just carry on till he's drooling out of the mouth?

Lewis was the king of rematches...... but I wonder why he never give a rematch to the 2 blokes who gave him his toughest fights and who actually deserved them.

He avoided Ray Mercer like he plague and retired from Vittles.

Not sure if re****ed.

37 years old, unmotivated, fat, undertrained Lewis kicked Vitali's ass in 6 rounds

A trained, motivated Lewis would do it in 3

So what if Lewis was 38, remember he was like a fine wine who according to his fanboys had just come off his career best win in destroying Tyson.

Also the reason why Lewis came in 6 lbs heavier was because he originally was fighting the ATG Kirk Johnson, and as Vitali came in as a late sub hence Lewis weight.

If Lewis had fought Johnson he would have pursued another fight with Tyson and he had no intention of retiring.

Anyhow answer me this, why did Lewis avoid Mercer when he got the gift in a very close fight which a lot of people thought he lost?

This semi retired, 5 stone over weight, shot to **** theories regarding Lewis are just fanboys trying to cover up the fact he was in a very good fight in which for the first time in ages he was fighting a young guy who could fight on the same level as him. These theories rank along side the 'lucky' punch.....

Vitali going to win? What are you talking about. His face was a bloddy mass. And Lewis becomes stronger and stronger. Vitali had the best rounds 1 and 2. Maybe round 4 too. On my cards it was a draw. Vitali landed his best shot in the second round but could not knock Lewis out. Lewis sometimes need a little bit time to find his way. VitaliŽs style is awkward so Lewis needs some rounds to become much more comfortable. But how the fight goes, it shows Lewis found the keye.

But 6 rounds where boxed!! Not 10 or 11. Vitali had to go 6 more rounds with one eye against Lewis!

Lewis would have koŽed Vitali in the 7the. The doctor save VitaliŽs health.

Maybe not on points, but Vitali was getting stopped.
