Default History will be much more fair with Wlad than with Vitali

Since Wlad has oficially dominated since 2006, and beaten guys like Byrd, Peter, Ibra, Chagaev, Haye, Chambers, Rahman, etc., I think history will be much more fair with him.

Although Vitali is arguably the better fighter, and has made an entire 2nd career after a comeback, his resume is much more weak.

Both are Hall of Famers, but probably Wlad will be the only ATG Klitschko.

Unless...I don't know, unless Vitali beats Haye or some prospect that becomes a good fighter.


Wlad...Top10
Vitali...Top15

I generally agree. Vitali will always be considered a strong all-time fantasy HTH bet for good reason, but despite what he's managed to do at his age, his record pales in comparison to his brother's whose will only look better and better as bitterness dies after Wlad retires.

Future generations who only see Vitali's boxrec won't really have an idea of how dominant he was in the ring.

Maybe in the distant future. Fighters legacy lives through his opponents as well.

Wlads opponents

Wach likely will stay active

Thompson retired or soon to be retired

Mormeck lets hope he retires

Haye semi retired

Peter somewhere stuffing himself coming off two ko losses possibly will retire. I hope not though

Chambers moving down in weight

Chagaev his carier seems to be winding down though who know?

Rahman will retire or lose against anybody half credible

Sultan Ibragimov retired

Lamon Brewster should stay retired if he wants to see

Ray Austin, Calvin Brock etc.

Notice the trend almost all of them won't do much unless a miracle happens say Haye beats Vitali or something


Vitali's:

Manuel Charr 27 yo fighting this december a washed up fighter no way will voluntarily retire. BTW fighting another Vitali victim, whoever takes this Vitali's resume improves

Dereck Chisora 28yo says boxing is his life, too young to retire

Tomasz Adamek already faught three times and won, fight scheduled

Odlanier Solis might as well be retired, but will very likely keep fighting

Shannon Briggs didn't he have a fight scheduled in UAE?

Albert Sosnowski will likely keep going as he is still 33 yo

Kevin Johnson fight scheduled

Chris Arreola fight scheduled

FFS even Timo Hoffmann still fighting.



See there is a lot of room for improvement in Vitali's resume in the end he may have more wins over title holders than Wlad. Not to mention hardcore fans knowing not to trust blindly boxrec.
