Re: When will people realize Wlad was not in his prime when he lost 3 times?
Now that Wlad's career is in it's last third, this will be a debated topic. When his career ends, it will remain forever.
When was Wlad's prime?
I don't know the answer. But this are the possible answers:
This is between the start of his physical prime and the start of his "boring" fights. More or less between Mercer and Ibragimov. However, this option forgets about masterful performances like Chagaev, Chambers, Haye, Wach, etc.
It would be hard to belief that Wlad's prime has covered a decade.
This is a possible option. But we are forgetting about Wlad's KO streak in the early part of the 00s, before the Sanders fight.
