How could anyone not give Vitali a chance?
We've had multiple threads where a few of us shared contemporary documentation of Rocky's (very normal) training regimens, but old myths never...
In fairness, Luis Ortiz would have damaged a lot of the classic section’s favorite little heavyweights though.
