Default Is wladimir the greatest boxer of all time

No he isn't and the more people think this and post on forums that he is the more people bring up the negatives about Wlad's career and talk about his 'glass chin', I would put Wlad inside the top 20 and if he can beat Haye and guys like Solis, Adamek he could creep inside the top 15 but sadly fighting guys like Chisora is not getting him any closer to being an ATG, in fact I think he's almost tempting fate with Chisora, if he wins so what if he loses it will be the 3rd time he's lost to a complete novice and that will no doubt hurt his legacy.
I'm not hating on him seriously I think he's a good fighter but comparing him to Tyson and Ali is plain retarded.

Well I'm glad we could all help you get that off your chest..............

Seriously though, I'm a big Wladimir fan but who has claimed he's the best or greatest boxer of all time? Please name names................

He does have an All Time Great jab and his power is up there too. He's already in the top 15 heavyweights of all time, maybe even the lower top 10. If he beats a few more Haye, Solis, Povetkin types he can still creep higher up the rankings.

Comparing anyone to Ali or Tyson is retarded. Third biggest star in heavyweights is ridiculously way behind of them.. in popular culture.

1. Louis
2. Ali
3. Lewis
4. Marciano
5. Holmes
6. Foreman
7. Holyfield
8. Tyson
9. W. Klitschko
10. Dempsey

That's roughly where I'd place Wladimir but if you ask me tomorrow, it might be different

So Joe Louis is ridiculously far behind Mike Tyson? That's laughable.

I'm sure I can find exceptions to the rule, but no one that posts here regularly says that.

I'd def. put Foreman above Tyson as well, along with Holyfield and a few others. Most boxing historians place Ali at number one, but many place Joe Louis there.

Agreed. He's defended his belt numerous times and even started unification. That's something we should all appreciate for the good of the sport.

I think Vitali is rated higher head to head while Wladimir is rated higher based on legacy, longevity, etc.

Wlad is hands down the greatest fighter ever of any weight class.

Ive read that both Vitali and Wlad would toy with Ali and Holmes at any era of their careers - this type of retarded nut hugging does bring out the hate in a lot of boxing fans .

Seriously , on historical context alone and because of the epic backdrop of his two fights with Louis I would rate Max Schmeling higher than Wlad Klitschko.
