of course it is because size for top level athletes usually correlates to superior strength and power.A guy weighing 250,260 is gonna hit harder than a guy weighing 190 and if the 250lb guy has the speed to go with it then it really is an unbeatable combination SIZE,STRENGTH,POWER,SPEED.Lewis and Wlad have this combination so imo they are the two most athletic heavyweights of all time.

This is an interesting concept. I don't 100% agree nor disagree with it.

Wlad is a bitch for NOT hunting Sanders down for a rematch and letting his big brother fight him. Greatest ever?? **** never.

Vittle should have done the same thing with Byrd. Seems the bro's would rather take the fights that suit them best instead of avenging embarassing losses.

Ha,

Wlad had a rematch clause in his contract, wlad asked for it, sanders dumped the WBO belt instead of giving it to him , that is how wlad fought brewser the following year for WBO.

You have at least 3 to 4 more years of your hate to put up with, cause I have heard wlad wants to be like his big brother an fight till he is in his 40's, I guess you can mock him for that, you know being a world champion all the way threw his 30's

Enjoy, as I am sure you will


Most athletic,,,,,NO QUESTION...YES

Sanders would have fought Wladimir again if he had beaten Vitali...
He didn't though.

Though I don't think he's the most athletic ever.
Though he has a big torso (His chest is bigger than Wach, his legs are shorter)

Do you have a link for this? Im pretty sure I've read a quote from Sanders saying he was surprised Wlad never sought a rematch. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: got it!

The following year, Sanders relinquished the then relatively lowly rated WBO belt to fight Wladimir's older brother Vitali for the World Boxing Council title, made vacant by the retirement of Lennox Lewis.

Sanders was advised by Lennox Lewis (his then promoter) to drop the WBO belt and go for the WBC belt against Vitali instead.

I found this, but thank you.

It still doesn't tell us why Wlad never pursued a rematch though.

Sanders dropped the WBO belt but was in a legal contract with with Universum (Wlad's then promoter). Sanders claimed those options were invalid and entered into a contract with Lewis/Ogun for the WBC fight against Vitali.

Universum sued and went into a lengthy legal dispute with Sanders, claiming he owned them money for breach of contract. I think that legal dispute lasted about two years, by then Sanders was 40 years old.
