Purrity was not a jouneyman. He only has three stoppage losses in a 50 plus fight career, the first were his second fight and fifth fight which could be anything, and he mixed in very high company. For example, he knocked down Tommy Morrison twice and still only drew the bout in 94. Journeyman don't have stuff like that on their resume. It just shows Wlad fought people at the top early doors and wasn't protected at all like most Brit HW's are at that age, e.g Price. And he's 29

He is very athletic for his size but RJJ was of course more athletic, Ali was also very athletic, Haye is, Tyson was very athletic, Holyfield...... and the list goes on it's hard to say who was the most athletic but Wlad is especially for his size very athletic

Purrity was a ****ing journeyman dude,.... Lol.
Wake the **** up.

Wladimir lose in his physical prime to a journeyman and lost in his prime to two fighters of inferior qualities.

The guy's been floored 14 times and was knocked out tkoed 3 times during his youth/prime and you still go on and on and on.

Wake up

Probably either Wlad or Tyson. If we're just counting greats. Haye is pretty damn athletic as well. I'd wager Ali was too.

Thing is though: How do we measure "athleticism"?

* is it a simple ripped look? Monte Barrett was always in super ripped shape but nobody would consider him overly athletic.
* is it punch output? Haye is considered athletic but has a rather low punch output. He picks his punches well.
* is it moving fluently and having great footwork? Lewis and Wlad have good, fluent movement for their size. Ali even a couple grades better.

You don't go by age moron. You go by # of fights.

Are you ****ing retarded?

Lewis in his 15th fight was already fighting a 35-0 guy.

Go look up Wladimir's 15th fight and tell me the record of his opponent.

Lewis in his 20ish fights were fighting guys that were 48-1 for WBC titles.



Go look up Wladimir's 20ish fights and find someone who is 48-1 or even close to that record.


I can't believe the audacity of retard Klittards. You ****ing go by # of fights not age.. Jesus Christ you are dumber than a rock..



Klittard Land:

Where 40 fights= green against Sanders
Where it's not the # of fights you have, but HOW OLD you were


By the time he's 25 Canelo would probably have over 50+ fights.. but I guess in your eyes he'll still be considered 'green' cuz I mean he's only 25 hes a babbbbbyyyyy

Haye is not more athletic than Wlad...not even close.

His stamina is shit. He was about to collapseafter Chisora. He has a low punch output for a reason.
