Re: If Vitali or Wlad beats Pulev/Povetkin/Fury, will he rank above Lennox Lewis?
Wladimir's wins over Byrd X2, Peter X2, Chagaev, Haye, Ibragimov, Chambers, Brewster II, Brock, Thompson X2, and Mercer are nowhere near Lennox's amazingly superior list of Holyfield X2, Vitali, Ruddock, Tyson, Tua, Bruno, Tucker, Golata, Rahman II, Morrison, Grant and McCall II.
Absolutely no case in hell could be made for either Klitschko over Lennox. None. The proof is in the pudding. And it would take several more years at least for Wladimir to come into debate at his current going. Just to throw out an idea, I'd say an ideal yet somewhat ever so slightly remotely possible finish for Wladimir would go something like this, with the hopes that the opponents remain unbeaten until my accompanied date: 2013- Povetkin, Pulev, 2014- Fury, Wilder, Cunningham, 2015- Jennings, Price, 2016- Haye II, retire at 67-3.
