I'm all over it. Just hoping for a good fight since I like and respect both fighters. Since when has Sanders been willing to travel to LA for a fight though?

The undercard match should be good too with Vernon Forrest fighting Teddy Reid.

The Staples Center (Not counting the Great Western) is 2-0 for having great fights. Here's hoping this is another.

Forrest/Reid should help things out.

My prediction: Sanders is going to get destroyed.

I'm predicting Sanders by KO within three. (Admittedly wishful thinking)

Doesn't look like there is an undercard though.

Sanders looks slow and lazy. Vitali looks like he lost some weight/more ripped than the fight against Lennox.

Great round by both fighters, especially Vitali.

Sanders looks slow and lazy.
He's not the only one. The term "slugfest" has double meaning here.

I think Vitali is just mirroring Sanders.

Sanders doesn't look phazed at all, Vitali looks like a scared child

Vitali doesn't look right tonight, he's so awkward, nothing like he was in his fight with Lennox Lewis.

Sanders looks like he's using rope-a-dope trying to draw in Vitali and then unload his left.

I don't know if I've ever seen so much "pattycake" in a heavyweight fight.

After 5 rounds:

But it appears that conditioning is killing Sanders, and Vitali is landing punches at will, this would be the last round...

Vitali's still scared of that one big punch by Sanders.

What the hell is Vitali doing, he's flailing his arms around like a whacko.

round 6

good round for Sanders, who landed many shots, but took a lot from Vitali as well. Pretty good action.

Vitali's clearly dominating now. Sanders might not have enough in the tank to finish.

Round 7

Horrible round for Sanders, didn't hit anything but air for the most part, while eating lots of glove from Vitali.
