Not to mention there was a war going on in that region at the time.
Now, when EE fighter are established they dominate with ease.

Also, how did you count 8? 1) Wlad, 2) Vitaly, 3) Valuev, 4) Maskaev 5) Lyakovich, 6) Povetkin, 7) Golota Chagaev, 9) Ibragimov

What is the percentage of the HW champs who are EE in the last 10 years? 99? lol
Another foolish uninformed post. The Russians were brought over in '89 by Dennis Rappaport and promoted by Top Rank. Learn something about what you're talking about before opening your mouth. That's a bad habit you have.
