Default Vitali may have quit, but Ukrainian Fighters are TOUGH and I may have proof

Ok, so I just found out about this guy so don't knock me because I never heard of him before. Still a Student.

But, for all those that ripped Vitali for quitting and there are some that say people have been hard on him because he is from Ukraine...check this guy out and his story:

Ok...Wiki isn't that reliable but if true....quite impressive. There is also a link down below but I suspect some people may not find that reliable either
If someone can confirm the story that would be great.



On February 10th, 1928, he faced Tony Canzoneri in New York City for the undisputed world title. Even though he lost a 15-round decision along with his title, Bass covered himself with fistic glory in a display of courage & stamina. During the third round of the encounter Bass somehow got his collarbone broken in five places. This kind of injury is excruciatingly painful making even something as simple as clenching your fists & holding them up agonizing. He somehow not only mustered the will too fight on for another 12 rounds; but from the 10th round on, he mounted a furious rally & almost pulled out of an extremely close 15 round split decision loss

Regarding Bass, Jack Dempsey was quoted as saying: "He is the greatest fighter of his weight and inches I have ever set my eyes upon."

Benny Leonard just made this thread to remind everyone about Vitali's fight with Byrd nine years ago.

He brings that fight up a LOT for some reason. Is it because he's trying to convince people to not like Vitali?

Vitali had a great showing against Lewis. The fact that he wanted to go on despite the gash on his eye was what Champions do. Not quite the same as fighting with the other injury because I think the shoulder injury was worse as far as pain and hinder of performance, but still redeemable.

The TKO loss by retiring instead of fighting on against Byrd may have actually helped Vitali see boxing in a new light. No longer was it about sport but it was about fighting till the end. So kind of like a growing experience from him after he learned how many viewed that fight.

I can vouch for this injury cuz I've had my collarbone broken when I was a kid when I fell from a big snowy mountain onto hard ice, and all I got say is, every single movement you do with your body is painful to the point that you can't move without a brace support. walking, moving your arms, turning your head, everything hurts like hell. so I can't imagine how this guy actually pulled this off. its pretty amazing.
