Mike Tyson was very fast, strong, quick on his feet, fluid in his movements. I've also seen footage of him shooting a basketball and it is an ugly sight. Does that mean he's less "athletic" or just hasn't played much b-ball?

People can be great in one sport and look like a clumsy oaf in another, which makes it hard to say who is the most "athletic" boxer.
Good post, I agree with this. The term 'athletic' is overused and not properly defined when used in boxing.

How can a guy who plods around the ring be described as athletic? There must be a couple of dozen heavyweight champions who were more athletic.

yeah he would definitely not try to suck Wlad's **** at any occasion
but rather he would stand upright and eat some jabs before get shot from the right.

Go look up Wladimir's 15th fight and tell me the record of his opponent.

Lewis in his 20ish fights were fighting guys that were 48-1 for WBC titles.



Go look up Wladimir's 20ish fights and find someone who is 48-1 or even close to that record.


I can't believe the audacity of re**** Klit****s. You ****ing go by # of fights not age.. Jesus Christ you are dumber than a rock..



Klit**** Land:

Where 40 fights= green against Sanders
Where it's not the # of fights you have, but HOW OLD you were


By the time he's 25 Canelo would probably have over 50+ fights.. but I guess in your eyes he'll still be considered 'green' cuz I mean he's only 25 hes a babbbbbyyyyy


you're an idiot. If a 21 year old fighter has say 20 fights under his belt, he should be considered prime? LOL. You kinda need to go back to middle school and learn a thing or two about human physiology.
Moron.

Golfer Corrie Sanders who was blown away by Hasim Rahman (who ****schko huggers claim is a "bum") yet nearly ended Wlads career at age 38 and nearly KOed Vitali in round 1 (who was saved by the bell) would have became the undisputed champion in the 90s

Even the "weak" Tyson era was far superior and leagues better in terms of quality than the klit era
Whats your point? Rahman was blown away by every good fighter he fought. Well, except for Lewis in that first fight. Based on your rationale, Povetkin>Wlad>Rahman>Sanders>Lewis.
