In a gut to gut contest Wladimir certainly beats Mike Tyson.
Even his own brother gave up after his loss against Brewster.
Nobody believed he could still be in and yet he climbed back up.
Then again Chuvalo beats Wlad too who lost 2 sons by drug overdoses, another one by suicide and his wife by suicide... (in a g2g contest)
