    Wladamir is 0-2 (1) against current crop, cant imagine he'd fare any better against Wilder

    Klitschko dropped Wilder in sparring, verified. Plus he can actually box, so he'd win that one.

    I want to see Fury, Wilder or Ruiz at 41 vs whoever is the new beast.

    Haha tyson lost to McBride and other bums at the end of his career and he was younger than Wlad. Do you think it happened because he couldn’t deal with monsters like danny williams and kevin Mcbride or because of his age?
    33 yo Wlad or Vitali beats any HW of today and stops wilder inside 7.

    You troll you.

    Any fighter who is 39-41 years is completely past their best. Boxing history at HW going back 100 years proves at that age, you are extremely unlikely to win title fights or win back a title. Foreman won some trinkets at 45 but was never considered world champion, and Holyfield won a belt at 37. But that is it really in terms of older fighters become HW world champion.

    How did Wladimir Klitschko remain an undefeated and undisputed HW champion for 10 years in a row? I guarantee you that is record that wont be broken by any of the current crop- 100% guarantee you.

    Wlad would have handled Ruiz Jr like a son, on the end of a jab and knocking him out late rounds. Wlad was dropping Wilder like a whores knickers in sparring, and Wilder always ducked that fight despite it being there when Wlad was in advanced years.

    The current crop is lucky to have come up at the tail end of the Klitschko era. They would be co #1's, because they wouldn't face eachother.
