The real question is whether or not Vitali even rates above Witherspoon.
Think about it.
They have about the same # of wins over top ten Heavyweights. Only Witherspoon's wins are of much better quality.
Also, Witherspoon's showing in his fight against a ATG Heavyweight in his prime
was vastly superior to Vitali's showing when he fought an ATG Heavyweight, who was past his prime, inactive and out of shape.
The last paragraph is something to consider.
