    Vitali Klitschko was a very good boxer puncher who could fight outside and rumble inside with a granite chin.
    But James (According to José Ribalta who fought both fighters) hit harder , was stronger and had 3 inch of reach on Vitali.
    Who takes it?

    Vitali Klitschko would toy with him for the duration of the bout and then stop him.

    James Smith has about as much chance as Danny Williams did. Basically no chance.

    If he can hug and tear with the glove might have a chance.

    As we all know Vitali has an 80% chance of a serious injury in any fantasy matchup, and also, Pele Reid, so Smith has a very good chance, I'd say :rolleyes:
