Fact is, Wladimir was in his physical and mental prime but wasn't prepared properly to perform at the level he's supposed to considering his physical attributes. Emannuel Steward pretty much clearly taught him what he's supposed to do. You can be in your prime but fight out of the style you're supposed to, proper conditioning and coaching/guidance is there to fix that.
The one thing you got to give Wlad credit for is he is always in impeccable shape.
