Lewis was coming off the KO win over Tyson. In the Lewis-Tyson post fight interview Lewis stated "I'm like fine wine, I get better with age"
In an interview right before the Vitali fight, Lewis said "I'm at the peak of my powers, I will keep fighting for many more years"
Vitali dominated Lewis and scared him into retirement. That's a FACT.
you ignored the only part that actually matters...
lennox landed clean punches on vitalis face that ripped his eye up as bad as anybody i've seen with modern 10 oz gloves with a formed thumb
he could have sustained career threatening injuries. eyes are like hands. if you actually boxed, you'd get that. once your eyesight goes you cannot box
and it cannot be fixed.
the ref and doctor stopped the fight
giving lennox a TKO victory
and leaving vitali stopped.
Lewis stopped vitali. he knocked him out. that's a stoppage victory. the doctor and ref deemed him unable to continue because of the damage his face was taking from clean punches.
it's vitals' principal job is to protect his face, and he failed doing it
protect yourself at all times, or lose via tko when your face gets ripped up.
you got a million excuses, huh?
