He'd rarely get out of Wlad's kill zone, and would be smothered when he did.

Fun facts about the Marce:

1. He never beat a single good real heavyweight, let alone super heavyweight, in his career.

2. He never beat a great fighter in his prime.

3. Claimed to be a one-punch knockout artist by delusional nuthuggers, Marciano couldn't get rid of a bum like Willis Applegate in 10 rounds. He went 15 rounds with former LHW Charles, who was one-punch KO'd by Walcott. Marciano had to hit out of shape, glassjawed former LHW Don ****ell a lot of times in 9 rounds before ****ell was stopped on his feet.

Hey, I'm not the one who's going in Marcianos thread and saying how terrible he is, The only mad one is you and you're getting pretty nasty against him why would that be?

Wlad has an elite amateur pedigree, has 60 fights under his belt, and has ruled the division for the better part of 7 years, or basically as long as Marciano's entire career in the fight game.
I made the comparison because the OP I replied to said that Wlad wins based SOLELY on weight without mentioning certain other, much more important things althought reading subsequent posts its obvious he didn't mean that. If weight and height is what wins fights then Valuev, Carnera and Abe Simon would be ranked as the greatest heavyweights ever as well as Jungle Jess.

So what was wrong with my original post then?

When you pit two great fighters against each other, the guy with the 60 pound weight advantage and 10 inches in height will win
I was basically saying that you cannot base one great fighter beating another solely on weight which is the only aspect you mentioned in the post I quoted.

Edit: **** I just realised I bumped this thread by replying.....

You mentioned Willard, okay when you have a great fighter (like Dempsey or Marciano), and a decidedly C level fighter (Willard), then the weight disadvantage can be overcome

How come Willard is classed as C level, What makes Wladimir a higher class? Jack Johnson is a way higher name,Higher then Wladimir himself.

They both beat up bums and they didn't do it with style like Dempsey,Liston or a Tyson.

Willard is just unfortunate a man called Jack Dempsey was around. Sorta like is Wladimir was around in the mid 80s and ran into small heavyweight called Mike Tyson.

Look at the point that Jack Johnson was at in his career, and circumstances surrounding how the fight was set up to favour Willard. Who else did Willard beat in his career? Wlad holds two wins over Chris Byrd and beat David Haye, two top HW's of the era's he's fought in, and they were in their prime.

Wlad vs Mike Tyson is a debate for a another day!

Do you think Johnson threw the fight or quit? He quit,what we know now is that Willard could stand absolutely tremendous punishment. The fight was set up for no one, both fought in the sun.

David Haye,Come on how am I suppose to take you serious when you mention him. He ran like a kid running from the school bully and then he blames his little pinky toe and presents no proof that it was broken. Should have been a comedian.

Byrd is nothing special,He got his ass whooped by the only good fighter he fought in his prime,Ibeabuchi.

Chris Byrd was a middleweight and Haye barely beat Valuev ... And he still made Wladimir look foolish at times by dodging 4 and 5 punch combos

Wlad himself (or vitali) said that Haye wasnt a real heavyweight ... Hes only interested in making a name for himself and becomming a celebrity ... His conviction and committment to the sport are questionable ...
