Only select few are given all time great status and Wlad with those three losses does not justify to be spoke of at that high a level. Really hurt him and he wants to quit.
Imagine if Wlad would got knocked down by a 190lbs past lhw, you would shout "lame, modern heavyweights can't take punches like Marciano anymore"
