I think the grey on the beard and hair gave away that he was old

On paper Lewis was old, Vitali was 10 years younger i believe.

His oldness showed in the ring, he was out of shape, had love handles, obviously did not train hard for the fight, and he came in the ring after 12 months, i guess he wanted to see if he still had it, which is normal for someone who had boxed all theyre life. Boxing is all they know. He obviously was not the fighter he once was.

And also you can only tell a fighter is past it when you see them in the ring, lewis called it quits at the right time in his career. You don't take 12 months out of ur career when ur reaching 40 years of age, which Lennox did, so he questioned his will/motivation to box.

Gotta give Vitali credit he dominates everybody with ease. He fights everyone there is to fight. What else can he do?

What are you talking about? McCall and Rahman knocked Lewis the hell out! It doesn't matter if Lewis won the rematches, they still beat him. The point is Vitali lost to the only hall of fame caliber opponent he's faced.

Additionally you ignore some of the facts like

7) Vitali took the fight on short notice (while Lennox WAS training for his title fight)

He was 5 years younger. Don't spin.

If you complain about a 5+ years age difference then delete off The Clay's record the following wins:
Floyd Patterson, Cleveland Williams, Sonny Liston, Zora Folley, Archie Moore (and others).

The Clay had 22 fights against 5 year older opponents.

And off Tyson's record delete:
Tony Tucker, Berbick, Larry Holmes, Spinks (and others)

And off Holmes record delete:
Ken Norton and Muhammad Ali.

4) Being out of shape is never good.
5) Losing to Lewis is no shame but it doesnt change the fact he lost against the best fighter he fought.
6) Pre-prime? Lol wut
7) Vitali was also training for a fight. In fact, he claimed he'd beem training for Lewis for a long time. They both had the same notice to prepare for each other.

Vitali Klitschko has never been heavyweight champion nor is he an ATG by any means.

Vitali was winning the fight according to all three judges at the time of the stoppage. I was at that fight, and Lewis almost got knocked out in round 2, Vitali just didn't follow up and let him off the hook.
