That said in the classic fighters tend to get more amazing by every decade that goes by till they are elevated to some superhuman proportions.
Also modern fighters that fight in a style people don't like right away are given no shot vs some of the old greats.
I will take the opinion of a true expert like Steward on how good Wlad really is over any forum warrior.
Its not like he was so biased to lose his objectivity, he was full of praise of fighters that beat his fighters as well.
RING magazine aren't forum warriors. Nor are many of the other boxing writers who differ to your opinion regarding Wlad's standing in boxing history.
But as I said in my previous post, it's about assessment and personal opinion when fighters can't be matched
