"it WAS worse... he didnt get hit with one shot and all the sudden had these MASSIVE cuts on his face. the cuts opened up and grew every round and if im not mistaken lewis rubbed a dread or two across them to help"
I never said it was one punch. I dont think the cut's
were noticeably worse round after round. I dont think
that it was much different in the sixth , than it was
in the fifth.
" theres no rule that says you have to stop it immediately after the cut or you cant stop the fight on the cut... that makes no sense. "
Yes , but they are usually stopped when the cut is
getting worse and impairing vision , blood dripping
into the eye etc. This was not the case in Vitali
Lewis. In the Gatti Rodriguez fight ( one of my all
time favourites) I think Gatti's injury was far more
detrimental to him fighting than Vitali's. Gatti
could not see out of that eye! Gatti was guessing
when the doctor was asking him how many finger's he
had up. He actually guessed wrong and the doctor gave
him another chance.
"It's interesting how Klit's loss to Lewis made him so great in others eyes, especially since there have been guys who knocked Lewis TFO."
Lewis's KO's were one punch shot's. Vitali was
actually outboxing lewis, something McCall and Rahman
didn't do. Nobody is saying that fight made Klit
great either, but it did show talent.
