It was a definite slip. Watch the replay back about 10 times (like i did) and concentrate on his left foot and then the next time concentrate on the "punch" that might've floored him. When you put them together you see his foot was already twisted in a "i'm about to slip" position and no punch actually landed to put him down. Also, once he hit the canvas he got straight back up.

I would say it looked like more of a push from Sanders personally.

He hit him with a left hand, and then Vitali fell left with a push coming from the right.

The more flush punches seemed to come earlier in the exchange imo.

 

Does remind me that Sanders was actually pretty decent though.

He often gets overlooked.

Sanders was definitely overrated or perhaps more of an underachiever? Or even overachiever. Depending on how you want to look at it. He always had a puncher's chance.

 

 

From what I've seen he was an under achiever, a fast hard hitting southpaw with talent. Though the problem was he was avoided for years, he was 37 when he cleaned the floor with Wlad and at 38 had Vitali stumbling all over the place. Poor stamina seemed to be a problem though.

I'm not too sure how seriously Corrie Sanders took the sport. I believe he was pretty well off without boxing. He was on his way up the rankings and making waves when he was Ko'd by Nate Tubbs (brother of Tony). He rebounded from that and then was stopped by Hasim Rahman in a Great fight.

 

I don't think he was avoided, its just when he looked to be making an impact his career got derailed.

Rob, In that case, he sounds like a bit of a David Tua.

 

He was a very dangerous fighter and had a big following in South Africa but I think the fact he was well off meant he didn't take his career too seriously. He was certainly trouble for anyone who would fight him as David Tua was.

 

David Tua fought alot of the best Heavyweights around and left his native NZ or Samoa and went looking for a titleshot, Sanders was more stay at home. So I'd compare them interms of being dangerous and powerful but Tua was probably better trained, certainly had better stamina and was more durable plus Tua fought in World class alot more often and has a better record overall.
