With Wlad, it's a question of him enforcing his terms on the fight. If he is able to do that, it's hard for anyone to beat him. The question is who has the correct physical and mental assets to take him out of his comfort zone.
Also, the focus here seems to be entirely on how someone gets to Wlad. I think equal thought should be placed on how Wlad would certainly get to this proposed someone. By all informed observations, he hits like a ****ing truck. That can defuse an attack awful quickly.
Show me a tape of a fighter who had the ability, speed and tenacity to move inside on Wlad using angles and lateral movement?
Wlad has no defence in close. None. It would be seriously easy target practice for Louis once he gets within range.
But the main question is- who in your mind beats Wlad Klitschko?
