    Unless Foreman catches Vitali cold early in the fight like he did Norton, I can see a gruelling hard fought fight. Vitali will try to pick his shots from range but I think he has the chin, size and ring iq to smother and frustrate Foreman when he does get caught. A decision win or maybe a late stoppage for Vitali over a exhausted Foreman if he makes it past the dangerous early rounds.

    Prime Vitali did go life and death with an older Lewis who had only 2 weeks notice. You don't think a well prepared Foreman could at least do as well?

    Totally different fighters, way more to Lewis's game, Vitali wasn't peaking yet and Lewis was a bit off and getting old. The Vitali of the Lewis fight isn't at his peak and would have a hard time with Foreman, couple years later and he would do fine

    Not if he has a 10 inch cut, no he doesn't.
