Wlad is definiately a better champion.

Tyson is a better #1 contender than Vitali. - Self explanatory.
Holyfield is a better #2 contender than Haye. - Self explanatory.

Povetkin is a better #3 contender than Tubbs, although Tubbs won the championship from Greg Page, who himself was a descent fighter, but I think Pov could hang with any of them.

Adamek is a better #4 than Witherspoon. Witherspoon lost to Tubbs and Pinklon Thomas, and I think Adamek could hang with those guys.

Chagaev & Thomas are even. Thomas was in with better fighters but lost to most of them. Losses to Berbick, Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe and Tommy Morrison
