Default If Wlad pulls a Hopkins, where would you rank him among the ATG HW's?

Let's say, if from this point onwards Wlad keeps going until his 47th birthday without losing more than two fights at most, both in controversial fashion, upsetting numerous prime contenders along the way, cleaning the division and basically being the dominant force for the next decade.

where would you rank him among HW ATG's when he retires?

I think Wach will hit him in the crouch and dryhump him to celebrate and Volo will lose his confidence and falter down the stretch, getting out worked by the faster, fresher fighter with volume and angles and footspeed. Pretty much a Calz/Hop loss. But he will regain the title at super heavyweight. In the Olympics.

He's already right around #12 or #13; if he pulled what you suggested he'd easily be in the top five.

With a weak division like that, I would of ranked him in the 15 to 10 area.

Wlad has said that he intends to retire after the 2016 Olympic games. He won't fight until he's 47. He's got other plans.

I have him at 16 right now. It would depend on his comp and how many more fights he had, but I can't think of a way he wouldn't be inside the top 10.

A win over viscous knock out artist Lief Larsen could thrust Wlad into the top 5.

Until 47? Top 3 at least, surely. It's not going to happen though
