Yipe! I guess this'll be on Boxing "After Dark."

I'll take Lewis, but I'm thinking that he's going to have more of a tough time with Vit. I'll say a Lewis with a TKO in the 8th.

edit: corrected wrong "klit."

I think that Lewis is in a league of his own. Of course, given the current state of the heavyweight ranks, that isn't saying much.

Klit scores the upset!

Or at least I hope he does.

A focused and motivated Lennox Lewis is nearly unstoppable, even with his weak chin. I expect a replay of the Michael Grant fight, Lewis by KO in 2.

i havent seen anything yet to give the impression that lewis is focused or motivated

i missed the weigh in.. but from what i understand, he came in overweight and lacked any passion

I think they said this is the highest combined weight of both fighters in any heavyweight championship bout.

It's not the only match on the card, it's the only fight HBO is airing. Laila Ali and Ricardo Williams are also fighting, unfortunately not each other.

I still think Lewis will win, but will not be suprised if Klitschko wins a close decision in the end. Lewis is the heaviest he's been in a while and seems to be underestimating Klitschko. Everyone saw what Rockman did to him last time he wasnt ready for a fight.

Lewis...

I hear George Foreman in the background saying he "can still do it"...does he really want to fight Lewis? Oh my, Boxing just get's stranger....

The cut is absolutely grotesque, but Vitali's cutman has done a great job of stopping the bleeding.

I'm a big fan of George Foreman, but him openly rooting for Vitali is pathetic.

watching lewis fight.. i think klit would have won this fight, if his eye hadnt split open so early

i think its just a matter of time before this one is called.. he is going to have to push hard for a knockoff soon

Agreed. The white boy is winning this fight except for that damn gash. Lennox looks horrible.
