Dont you think he would want to make a statement after all the weak bodies he fought by pushing for the fight, but it seems he has no desire to do that and is happy to make another voluntary defence. Choices like that convince me he doesn't get past Marciano.
You lack any type of objectivity. Ducking Povektin? Please, we all know who was the architect of the stumbling blocks in those fights, he doesn't have the attributes to trouble Wlad anyway.
Tyson would very likely eat Wlad up, Marciano isn't Tyson. Holy? Hard to say, he lost his physicality against stronger, bigger opponents and wasn't a concussive hitter, which is what puts Wlad in to panic mode. Louis? Louis is like a smaller version of Wlad with more grit but slower feet. He lands a few flush on Wlad its big trouble though, combination punching and finishing was through the roof.
