I was talking about this year. Overall, I think Wlad's competition has been good. I rate Wlad fairly high amongst all-time heavyweights and would rate him as my favorite current fighter. He has beaten guys who I think would be highly rated in almost any era-Byrd, Haye, Sultan, Chagaev, Chambers, etc.-all good fighters. But, the OP was correct, Wlad's 2012 was virtually a wasted year.
