Of the 3 that are "cruiserweights", 2 held a belt at heavyweight, and the third was top rated in 2 organizations. Sam Peter = WBC Heavyweight Champ. Sultan Ibragimov = WBO Heavyweight Champ. Calvin Brock #1 rated IBF Heavyweight. Ruslan Chavaev = WBA Heavyweight Champ. David Haye = WBA Heavyweight Champ. Chris Byrd = WBO/IBF Heavyweight Champ. Lamon Brewster = WBO Champion.

So, Wlad tore through a group of champs and former champs in the slintered title era. Sound familiar? Perhaps typical of the accomplishments of the crowd that Tyson drove through during the late-80's?

And if "cruiserweights" are a detriment to a heavyweight's record, let's re-examine the legacy of Louis, Johnson, Dempsey, Marciano...
