Sorry, but a lot of those placings are just bullshit. Surprised at The Ring tbh.

Spending a decade beating decent fighters is commendable, but he doesn't hold wins over any of Lewis, Tyson, Vitali, Holyfield and so on. The top 10 in Wlad's prime isn't all that cracking. It isn't his fault of course, but I find it difficult to rate him highly as a result.

Understand your point though
The Tyson who fought Lewis still knocks Wlad cold imo - a motivated, fit Lewis made Tyson look worse than he was at that time. Even though he was well past it at that point, Tyson would have stretched chinny Wlad back then

My thought's exactly.

A lot of these rankings look a bit dodgy to be fair.
