Default Why Does Vitali Get More Credit for Losing to Lewis than Rahman Gets for Winning?

he doesn't
it's just that people still talk about Lewis-Vitali since Vit is still relevant
Rahman is long done and nobody cares, so it's not talked about
beyond that, Vit fans use the "what if" thing about Lewis retiring
Rahman got a rematch and got flatlined, making his win easier to forget

Rahman didn't have enough fans to matter and Vitali fans have managed to delude the rest of the world into believing his two losses are really wins and his resume is actually impressive.

I know...I just woke up in a funny mood this morning.

Well I don't think he gets more credit for it, but maybe it's due to the fact that he took the fight on two weeks notice...

HBO commentary doesn't help things. they talked about the fight like lennox was scared of a rematch (in reality he was retiring after a long ass career with huge earnings which he didn't spend foolishly.)


they also talked about the fight like vitali won...


tko6. protect your face from getting torn to shreds, vitali.

Rahman getting knocked into next week in the rematch plays a part, that made it clear what a focused Lewis would do to Rahman.

Vitali fought an old and out of shape Lewis and while he was slightly ahead, he got his face ripped apart and stopped. I don't give him anywhere near as much credit for that as others seem to.

As HBO said before the fight, he had been training specifically for Lewis for over a year already when he got the call.

Because Vitali didn't get spectacularly KTFO'd in a rematch.
