Again, if you read my list, I picked Tyson very high and above Wlad in a head to head sense.
But it's a lot closer than you are suggesting. You do not dominate 7 or so years in the division by accident, something that not even Tyson could accomplish. And FYI, Vitali has admitted he doesn't have his bro's number.
