    50 /50 fight?
    Horrendous mismatch in favour of the more modern fighter?
    Baer is more than capable of smashing him to the floor?
    12 rounds and both at their best.

    Would be difficult really, for Max to try and get any kind of advantages over Wlad.
    Klitschko uses that height advantage over him. Its just that big punch that Baer had that doesn't totally rule out a Klitschko win.
    I don't see a Klitschko - Sanders type win tbh.
    Max s chin keeps him in the fight till the last minute, don't see him getting stopped.

    Wlad was better in every way except for his chin, he`d out-jab Baer who never beat a fighter with Wlad`s reach aside from the inept Carnera.

    Bert Sugar RIP would have said Max by 1st round ko haha, but imo Wlad would beat every heavyweight in history before Ali came along.

    Doesn't change the fact that you were wrong.

    As long as Wlad stayed away from the right hand he's sail through this without too much trouble.

    Baer is a horrible boxer and basically has a chin and power.

    Wlad Klitschko is a master boxer that specializes in brutalizing the little shorties like Baer.

    Honestly Baer's defence is so woeful that I think Wlad stitches him up late after feeding him about a million jabs.

    And you know this because of all the footage of them you have viewed?

    Bottom line;
    Whatever the efficacy of their respective jabs they were all longer than Wlad's 81 inches.
