    Usyk gave Klitschko the work and Klitschko himself said the sparring against Usyk was difficult. Its not like Usyk was pulling out alk the stops either

    Byrd is not Ali lmao Byrd stood right in front of him on the front foot. Ali would be using his superior footwork to move around Klitschko and slip through created angles on the backfoot. Prime Ali's head movement and general skill is also dimensions above Byrd. Maybe i should have said mover+slickster to be more specific. Like Fury and Usyk

    So, we're picking 40 year old Wlad against prime ALi?

    They usually are doing this.
    Okey, Kovalev then had beated prime Hopkins and Holmes had beated up prime Ali. Age doesn't matters also for western boxers.

    There is no way in hell Ali beats Wlad...
    Klit struggled with boxers who were his sizs and hes ragdolled everyone smalled than him, Klit gets a KO after a snoozefest with 30 clinches a round

    Wlad was old i agree but Fury's style would have always given him fits. Wlad in his prime used his height and reach and Fury negated that with his size and feints and his elite level head movement and his quick feet. Wlad was always naturally gunshy after his KO losse. But could Fury beat prime Wlad ? Thats a debate by itself. That very reason is why i think Joshuas combination punching could hurt Fury

    I agree that Fury is a very big and awkward SOB but Wlad wasn't right mentally for that one. If Fury had taken the rematch we'd have seen if it truly was the case or not.

    A depressed Fury would have brutalized him. Round 12 for 12 rounds. Wlad can't hack a big man coming after him.

    As far we do know, Fury after first fight vs old Wlad had other preferences rather than to box professionally.
    I really will put you on ingore list, it is not worth to waste my time with you, despite Fury likes me, you are not worth for me to discuss with you.

    Is that a threat or a promise?

    My statement is not direct, don't get personally insulted.

    Ali by a wide UD that would likely involve excessive bleeding on Wlad's part.

    I don't know if he stops him but Wlad clinches him up and jabs the f out of him all night en route to a lackluster win.
    It's possible he could go at him agressively like he did against Chris Byrd and get that late stoppage but I doubt it, he would be too timid and show Clay too much respect
