There have been reports written that "In his last bout against Danny Williams in December 2004, Vitali was incredibly slow and
breathing hard after the first few rounds of the fight. Though he ended up stopping Williams
in the 8th, Vitali looked ragged by the fights end – hardly like a champion."
I watched the fight and I saw Vitali avoiding punches thrown
by Williams that would have caught most heavyweights flat footed and knocked them
to the canvas. Watch the video of the 7th round. You want see a slow Vitali
or someone huffing and puffing around the ring.
