Ranking above Holmes is harder for Wlad, imo.

Holmes was undefeated since the start of his career until he was past his prime in 1985. He never lost in his prime. Wlad did at least two times.

That's the main difference. Both dominated mediocre divisions during 7 years, though, and Wlad's comp might be a bit better (just because Holmes never unified and fought a lot of boxers with less than 20 pro fights).
