I think Wlad is better now than Vitali ever was. People forget that Vitali was beating Lewis up until the cut. IMO Vitali has never lost a boxing match.

Vitali and Wlad are different stylistically. I do agree that Wlad at his best is better than Vitali.

Lennox would merc Wlad.

You can't discount a retirement and a stoppage, dude. Those are legitimate losses. Wlad is better, but as flea says, would have lost to Lewis even more clearly.

I think he deserves to be rated highly.

I'd rate him above everyone who has come since.

possibly but he was 48-0 at one point with 20 defences-


Plus his performances against mercer and mccall were great when you factor his age although he did get lucky decisions over williams and witherspoon

I was well liked pretty quickly. I admitted when I was wrong and was treated well because of it.

Had anymore e-nervous breakdowns lately?

Thank you, I've never bothered to look into Larry Holmes, just thought I'd make a sweeping remark without anything to back it up so the likes of you could put me right, cheers
