Yeah, you're right. I checked an old interview with Steward and he said he fought Chagaev with just one good shoulder, the right one. That wordage must have confused me. Anyway, he fought a brilliant fight but he was essentially one armed so i don't count that as his peak. It was an incredible display of defensive prowess and i remember being very impressed by Wlad's boxing ability for such a huge guy.
