Re: Wladimir Klitschko now holds the record for the longest reign in heavyweight boxi
Having shared the ring, professionally and recreationally, with many of the greats of the 90's and with the K Bros, I happen to think they would have done just fine in the 90's.
The Lewis hump, I can't say I'd bet on them overcoming, but I can't say I see the others surviving. They are really very, very good. Masterful control of range, incredible physical strength, Vitali is awkward impossible to establish a rhythm against, Wlad is technically incredibly with concussive power, they have good speed of hand and foot(Wlad) for men their size, and above all, they have tremendous smart and ring IQ.
I was so impressed with these guys in my experience with them. They'll be underrated forever, and I think that is a shame. Nicest, hardest working, most detail-focused boxers I've seen in years. Also, badasses.
