Fighters change. I've never met a single fighter who was the same guy he was more then a half a decade prior. Wlad's detractors would saddle him with that, and give Lewis a pass for getting cold****ed worse against McCall then Wlad was against Sanders.

Both had weaknesses, and both improved. Lewis didn't have a Brewster or a Purrity, but he had a Rahman, and Wlad has yet to lose the heavyweight title in a big, one punch knockout to a no hoper.

I think they are closer then people are giving it credit, Lewis' h2h edge or no.

Btw, yes, McCall and Sanders are on about the same level.
good post and ****ysis
