Default Using Jones-Calzaghe to better appreciate Vitali Klitschko

Punch stats:

Joe Calzaghe vs Roy Jones

Thrown: 985
Thrown/round: 82 (12 rounds)

Vitali Klitschko vs Sam Peter


Thrown: 582
Thrown/round: 73 (8 rounds)

*

Two important differences here:

1. VK weighs around 70 lbs. more than does Joe
2. VK was off for 4 years before the Peter fight

Vitali Klitschko is the Joe Calzaghe of the HW division. That is, he has a very high workrate, particularly compared with other HW's. Another example of this phenomenon:

Vitali Klitschko vs Lennox Lewis

VK --

Thrown: 432
Thrown/round: 72 (6 rounds)

LL --

Thrown: 222
Thrown/round: 37

So, VK threw almost twice as many shots/round as did LL. And like the Peter fight, he averaged in the low-70's of punches thrown/round against Lewis, a phenomenal number for such a massive fighter.

VK was kind of gassed in the Peter fight, but when you realize how huge he is and how many shots he was throwing (not to mention his age and the long layoff he was returning from), that fatigue is more understandable.

Everyone understands how insane people like Calzaghe's and Margarito's workrate is. To better appreciate Vitali Klitschko's dominance, it helps to put his punch output into perspective against men far smaller than he is.

Take it into the tko6 thread.

Gun to your head

What happens if there was a round 7-8 for Lewis vs Vitali?

What happens in a Prime Lewis of Golota days vs Vitali of Danny Williams fight?



If there was a round 7 or 8 in the Lewis vs Vitali fight.
People today won't think of Vitali as the old Ukrainian Champion.
They will just think of him as 'that retarded dude who carrys Wladimir's hand bags'


But nice of you to pull up stats from a fight against a 258 pound ageing Lewis who can barely walk to the ring unassisted and who was heaving for air after 1 minute of action.

Vitali from Peter fight was same age as Lennox from his fight with Vitali. Cowardly Lion scared into retirement.

i would of thought you had enough sense to acknowledge that lennox was fighting a prime monster in vitali, while vitali was fighting a little blobby man with no skill in peter. but no, you are that stupid.

there's a huge difference. go on, smack yourself in the head.
