Finally, even whit a boxer able to dodge everything, without tiring, wlad would still win at points
Wlad doesnt have the agression and chin to afford to go balls out after tyson and really hurt him, and i genuinely think that Tyson would get to him sooner then Wlad would get to Tyson.
I would actually favor Vitali in an all out war against tyson if his skin holds on or doesnt get another freak injury but with Wlad is another matter, wlad is all about finesse, working behind the jab keeping his foe at distance pawing with the left hand and planning the next move, and prime Tyson had the abilities required to beat Wlads style.
True Wlad would grabs anyone who would get past that jab but i still think Tyson would get a sneaky one in sooner or later.
