Yeah I do too. In fact I think it's patently obvious. Just wait though, haters will be in here in a few minutes saying he's not even top 15 or some shit.

The veracity of Dan's statement is rivaled only by his bodyfat.

O like Wlad, but he'snot top 10......yet. But to answer you question.....every top 10 fighter with a career defining win and without 3 losses in their primes to C level fighters. Don't worry though, Wlad will get there by virtue of his reign, longevity and dominance since last losing.

Wlad is for real and one of the best Heavyweight Champions in history. Only that he never had BIG names on his resumé like Lewis, Tyson and Holyfield had.

Wlad wasn't in his prime when his losses occurred. A colorable argument can be made that he was in his prime against Brewster, but it looks like he really came into it afterward, once he perfected his style. Lewis on the other hand...

Wlad has dominated every fight for years now. Those losses were before his prime. In his prime no one can get past his jab.

I am not a fan of Wladimir Klitschko, to be honest. I'm not overly interested in watching his fights and i like my boxers a little more rough and gruff.

But the fact is, nobody who knows boxing gives any heavyweight contender in the world a serious chance of beating him, or even of competing with him, really. And it's been that way for a few years now. That's as dominant as dominant gets.

Also, going back to his second fight with Chris Byrd, he is now 12 or 13 title defenses and 6,5 years into his reign, making him the longest reigning HW champ this side of Joe Louis and Larry Holmes.

Ofcourse there will always be those who say the heavyweights are shit nowadays and there aren't any worthwile contenders. But what boxing fan would say that, for example, Haye-Adamek or Pulev-Povetkin wouldn't be compelling fights between quality fighters?
I wouldn't say that, because it's just not true. Granted, these guys are not Joe Frazier or Evander Holyfield, but they are quality fighters. Against Klitschko however, they wouldn't stand a chance, and that's down to his quality as a champion. The proof is in the pudding!

True. And I've said before that this heavyweight era, although weak compared with other eras, would look a lot stronger if the Klits hadn't dominated it completely.
