Regarding Wlad's stamina, that's changed a lot. He lost the Purrity and Brewster fights purely because of it - both times he rarely got hit even when he was falling all over the place before being stopped. He used to have very wrong training habits. A lot of weight lifting and sparring 4 intense rounds but rarely more. When he hooked up with Steward, that changed and he trained like a classic boxer. It showed: since then he's shown good stamina. Against Peter he wasn't caught on the ropes a single time during all 12 rounds while maintaining 40-50 punches a round. Against Chambers and Thompson he showed late round power to still score a KO.
Shame he wasted his physical prime with a **** trainer.
