Re: How were old timers so good?
Wlad is great now. I'd absolutely consider comparisons with Dempsey in terms of ATG status valid. Where you have them relative to each other is just going to depend upon how you personally feel about x y and z though. Let's be honest, once you're out of the top 2 it's pretty soft, isn't it?
People are just going to have to start dealing with Wlad appearing on top 10 HW lists. Because once he's been retired a year (presuming he doesn't suffer another horrible KO loss) I guarantee you will be seeing an awful lot of him there.
