It is idiotic to even compare this make-pretend reign to Louis's dozen-year domination.
His reign hasn't even begun yet and it won't until he fights the number two contender. The sooner Vitali retires the better it will be for boxing, for obvious reasons.
That being said, he is without a doubt the premiere heavyweight of this time.
Stonehands, Chagaev a third rater? I think not.
Louis had a great run, but let not pretend any of the bum of the month guys could come close to Wlad. He would dispatch them with ease, and unlike Louis would not get stunned or floored along the way.
