OK - but many disagree with you, and you have not posted your list after asking for mine. I am interested to see how you shoehorn wlad into a top 10, and if you would add Vitali in there too. cause not only do I think Wlad is not a top 10 ATG HW, I think he is not even the best HW in his family.

Lets say he fights on untl he's 40ish and accomplishes the following:

- adds the WBC title to his collection (he'd be the only HW to hold all 4 major titles at once)
- wins out the remainder of his career (the last 4/5 years of which standing alone at the top w/o his brother)
- ends up with over 70 pro bouts (winning all but 3)
- over 10 lineal championship defenses
- dozens of title defenses
- several wins over former Olympic medalists (not to mention his gold medal in the Atlanta games)
- numerous wins over top rated contenders

After all of that, could you still name 5 heavyweights that accomplished more? After closing out his career without losing for a decade and a half, could you let go of those early loses? After owning the division for years after his brother is gone, would you finally see he is the superior Klitschko? What more would he need to do? Cure cancer?
