Default Re: How good was Sultan Ibragimov

Volo's win over him probably gets underrated for sheer low entertainment value of their fight together, but it was a dominant win over a very good fighter. When I say B-level, I mean as far as championship names are concerns. Historically B-level. He was an A-level for his own division at the time, obviously. I consider him perfectly in the league of Chagaev, Povetkin, Haye, Chambers, etc, at heavyweight. But, I was very disappointed not to see the Chagaev fight. I think we missed out on a very interesting fight, there. I really do. I think he could've had some good ones if he'd stuck around, also.
I this so too. I think that Ibragimov would beat Chagaev.
