    (July 19, 1971- )
    Resides in Los Angeles
    Nickname: Dr. Iron Fist
    Heavyweight Champion of the World
    Announced retirement (November 9, 2005)
    Elected to the Ukrainian Parliament as a member of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform Party (October 2012)
    Amid massive protests and the ouster of President Yanukovych, announced his candidacy for President of Ukraine (February 23, 2014)
    He quit in a winning fight against Chris Byrd because he injured his shoulder, leading to questions about his toughness and desire.
    His younger brother Wladimir was considered the better of the two fighters for a long time.
    He didn't make his professional debut until he was nearly 26.
    His fighting style has been called stiff and mechanical.
    Because of his size (6'8), business-like approach and Ukrainian heritage, people often see him as the real life Ivan Drago.
    Although the ring physician stopped the fight because of a cut over his eye, he pummeled Lennox Lewis for six rounds. He was ahead on all three cards in the fight, and the HBO commentators agreed that Lewis had never taken such a vicious beating.
    When Lewis had the audacity to say he felt a knockout coming, Vitali simply responded by saying, 'I wasn't the one staggering to find my corner.'
    In his following fight, he demolished Kirk Johnson in two rounds. During his post fight interview with Larry Merchant, he called Lennox Lewis out. Lewis then retired, leading to speculation that he didn't think he could beat Vitali.
    Holding true to his 'Dr. Ironfist' nickname, he knocked out 34 of his 37 opponents, an incredible 92% knockout ratio, the highest of any heavyweight champion in history.
    In a sport where many participants have little or no formal education, he holds a Ph.D.
    He is fluent in several languages.
