Klitschko says results of the match are distressing
Several days ago Vitali Klitschko lost the fight with Lennox Lewis on a technical knockdown after six brutal rounds. The controversy about the match has already faded away and now we have a chance to consider the situation in detail.
- Vitali, how do you feel?
I am OK; I don't feel I've lost.
- They say that surgeons pit in 6 stitches on your face.
Bad news travels quickly. First of all, it was plastic surgeon who pit in the stitches; second, there are much less stitches in fact.
- What can you say about the doctor?
I want to say one thing, the doctor didn't examine me; he didn't touch me and asked no question about my health. He just glanced at me and withdrew.
-Vitali, as far as I know you are planning to issue a protest and demand that results of the match must be declared void.
I wouldn't like to comment on this so far.
- You know, much is spoken now about a return match between Lennox and you. Do you think it will take place?
One thing is for sure is that HBO Sports is interested in organization of a return match. I also want a return match and hope that Lewis will agree to hold it as well. In fact, the results of the fighting distressed me greatly. I could become a world champion but…. They should have given me a chance to continue the fighting.
- Do you think the doctor and the referee made a fair decision to stop the match?
It is difficult for me to say. I know that many boxers felt much worse but all the same were given an opportunity to continue the matches.
