Dempsey, Frazier, and Louis these guys did beat super heavyweights so I can understand those who favour them over Wlad but the same can't be said for Rocky. It's like comparing fighters from different weight classes and it's too much of a leap of faith.

I don't agree that Wlad is greater yet but I think history will remember him as the greater heavyweight. he'll probably stay champ until he's 40 racking up victories over ranked contenders.
Nobody is talking about other HWs. This thread is about Wlad. No blueprint exsits on how he beats an elite level boxer let alone AN ATG. Its a matter of styles and Marciano was a stylelistic nightmare for Wlad and his extremely low level of punch resistance.
