true but fitz was not a world class level wrestling and wlad, from my understanding, has significant cross discipline skills. he is not just a boxer and is physically at a ridiculous advantage

for example, kurt angle, olympic gold medalist, had trouble wrestling big show because of the size difference. that size difference is comparable to this one except fitz was not an olympic gold medalist

he had grappling skill as per the era but let's not big up his skills to an elite level; he could hold on to similar sized and slight bigger guys, toss them and fight in the clinch. WORLD of difference between that and grappling as an art on it's own
