Default Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs Corrie Sanders- THE FACTS

Current Wlad is much different than the version who was sparked out. Skills and approach/style wise he's much different. Maybe not as potentially exciting given his safety first approach, which is obvious now, but a better overall fighter without question.The only thing that remains the intangibles you can't teach....he is not a hard man in the slightest, not a particularly tough "bad ass". He was easily put out of his comfort zone and into panic/survival mode, where more mentally tough guys would have reacted different by holding, tying up, or fighting back with equal intent. That inability to cope mentally is not something that can be trained out of a man. It can be hidden and protected through better technique and planning, which he's successfully done, but is always there. Sanders was just a wake up call.
