He'd be a titlist.

He would definently hold at least one belt. But he wouldn't have a long reign as champion because he wasn't an overly dominant fighter.

He would be able to beat everyone out there today, including Wlad. But I dont think he would be able to string out 10 title defenses or anything.

Wlad was destroyed by a 38 year old left hooker named Corrie Sanders, who wasn't quite the left hooker that Ruddock was. Of course, that's a very genaric description of things, but certainly an indication that Razor would at least stand a chance.

Then again Razor didnt have Sanders hand speed ,though he hit harder,imo.

Well he would do very good IMO,but tommy morrison beat him ,and most people dont really rate morrison,so id say he would lose to wlad,but maybe after knocking him down once or twice,but i could see him beating the other three guys,but then losing the title right away,as has been said he was inconsistent at times,and maybe should have done far better in his career.

Morrison was underrated, he was pretty refined. Remember at one point he was being groomed as boxing's next superstar but the Mercer loss raised questions about his durability. d

With regards to I still believe that Ruddock could have been champ. He was inconsistent but IMO from 1989 thru 1993 the Heavyweight division was waist deep in talent. Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe, Lewis, Mercer....

I think he could be a contender in any eara and even win a tittle, but I don't think he would have been the best heaveyweight of his time.
