I don't think we rate Vitali. Can probably count on one hand the number of live contenders he's actually beaten. With Wlad, it depends on your criteria I guess. A fighter - and particularly a Heavyweight - only has what's in front of him in his own time to conquer, which is naturally why people tend to place more emphasis on title reigns, dominance and such in regards to them. With that said, not all era's are created equal and the quality of the opposition (their ability, skills, worth, accomplishment, level at the time) has to be judged. That's open to (wide) interpretation. It'll have people saying things like Roy Jones win over Malinga trumps Robinson's over Fullmer.
