He was not in control of himself, he would of found another way of self destructing IMO.

He either would've become a champion, or more likely, been beaten in a thriller by Lennox Lewis.

The most obvious answer is Ike vs Wladimir in 2003-2004.
Ike would have hit his prime in 03-06ish.. His era is right in between Lewis/Holyfield and Wlad/Vitali's... he over laps.
I think Ike would have done to Wlad what Sanders did in the first fight, but Wladimir would have won a wide UD in the rematch somewhere around 06-07.

Lewis might also never have fought Vitali and fought Ike in Vitali's place instead.. I don't know how motivated or prepared Lewis would have been. On paper Ike looked much more dangerous.. so who knows.

My opinion also. You can not remove the mentality from one realm of a person's life and expect the same results in another realm. It's all connected. In a sense, he did exactly as good as he could have done.

It depends on match making and when he gets fights. If he fights Lewis around '00 or '01 he loses, if he faces the Vitali version he may well win. He'd be too young and good for Holyfield and Tyson. He'd beat Ruiz pretty easily, he'd batter Toney, only the Klits and Lewis would be a threat

Vitali-Ibeabuchi is a very good fight anytime, it's sort of the Ali-Frazier dynamic with Ibeabuchi being the in fighting pressure guy obviously.

Wlad-Ibeabuchi - see above, except Wlad pre-Peter probably crumbles, post Peter/Byrd he should be favoured especially as Ibeabuchi ages.
