IMO this "Wlad is a better boxer" seems like an ESB myth..
Wlad lands harder and at a higherr connect percentage. Vitali throws more, but it's mostly arm punches and his connect perfentage isn't that great (except with his straight right).

Vitali is the more natural "fighter" of the two, that's pretty clear. But it's a pretty universal thought in the boxing world that Wlad is the far superior athlete, boxer and has faced much better opposition.

It gets harder and harder to compare the two brothers based on their fight performances b/c of the gap b/t their resumes. It appears that will continue even more of the coming years when Vitali retires and Wlad keeps on fighting.

Look guys, even Manny Steward told Lennox Lewis back when he was training him, "the only guy out there that you gotta look out for is that younger Klitschko brother".

Vitali is the tougher guy, the more natural fighter, the meaner mother****er. But prime for prime Wladimir is better overall and his resume is far superior (amateur and pro). End of discussion.

Surely there has to be some overlap, somewhere - law of averages?

Good example:

When Wlad gets hit his reaction is to stop the other guys momentum, recover and then take control of the action.

When Vitali gets hit, his reaction is to exchange.

Wlad is an architect. Vitali is a wrecking ball"
Man, you stole that from something I posted last month.

The embarrassing loses don't count (that weren't against superior opposition)? Wlad lost rounds to Williamson. Vitali never would.
