Take Bugner's opponents and compare them to Klit's opponents.

I go out on the limb and say Joe gets motivated and wins one for his country by outpointing the Hvywt Champ Klit on a split decision.

Ali would need to be at his best to defeat Wlad, and the Bugner Ali was not at his best. The same goes for Frazier.

While Ali wasnt peak he was in good shape ,having fought Wepner 3 months previously,and Lyle only 6 weeks before,Ali weighed 225 ,only 1/2 pound more than he would 3 months later in Manila against Frazier,despite the humidity,[it was in Kuala Lumpor] Ali finished the stronger of the two.

Wlad, via comfortable enough UD (possibly late TKO). He's on a different level. Bugner would blurt out after another dazzlingly display of cautiousness "it ain't just about the money it's to be able to count it".

It's possible that Bugner could have gotten psyched up enough to give Vlad a decent fight. At his best, Bugner was very fast on his feet, had very good handspeed, possessed an excellent left jab, and could box well. So maybe he could have troubled Vlad some in the long distance fighting.

But Bugner didn't have the punch to threaten Vlad. Vlad tends to be much more aggressive when he knows he's facing someone who can't hurt him. For this reason I imagine Vlad taking control of the bout by walking Bugner down, and by thumping away at him with his powerful lefts and rights (yes, I think Vlad would have thrown many right hands in this bout).

Vlad's superior size, strength and punching power would have enabled him to push Bugner into a defensive shell. From there Vlad would pile up points and win by a comfortable margin on the cards.

I'm pretty certain the bout would be a stinker.

Someone above mentioned that Bugner wasn't fast on his feet. I disagree. At his best, Bugner could circle rapidly around his opponents. Watch his fight against Frazier on youtube.com to see what I mean.

Great analysis as always Kenmore. Your post says everything I was thinking about how this fight would have turned out.
