I honestly believe that he would face alot of trouble against the previous champs, i just don't see Wlad's jab and grab style work against many of these former greats..

He is more obviously flawed than anyone on the list except Vitali. His complete lack of an inside game is something you'd expect most great fighters to have few problems exploiting.

Wlad is near perfect at what he does well. However, he is far from flawless overall.

W means wlad wins. D means too close to call. L means wlad loses.

Need to revaluate foreman before commiting.

I can see him perhaps winning against Louis, Marciano, Patterson and Liston, rest he loses IMO.

Wow, Patterson would have held his own but to discount the other 3 is just crazy. Neither Patterson or Marciano were true heavyweights most of their careers but they were true warriors.

Liston was a beast. Louis was a top level boxer and puncher. Marciano would have had a field day beating that big body.

All I'm saying is that Wlad has a chance against them.

I think Wlad gets starched by all of them including his brother.

jab, jab, grab... doesnt work on real HW fighters.

hug and hold is not boxing, not inside fighting, and he should be duducted points for using this as a defense/protecting his glass chin.
