    Why not? Wlad at 46 straight off the couch might be top 10ish anyway, it won't really rate among their typical BS.

    Very ordinary lot of Heavyweights at the moment apart from the Top 2......Wlad even at 45 would cause a lot of Havoc I think.!!!.

    Fury = USyk > Joyce > Bodybuilder > Ruiz > Wilder > Whyte> old Klitschko

    Foreman was able to do that because he had 10 years of rest and lacked wear and tear. Even then, he both won and lost against the best of the 90s fighters.

    He had talked about it several months back so this may be in his plans. I’m not sure how well he will do because the deterioration in the fury fight; his reflexes were noticeably going

    He still hasd the speed and brutal power but his reflexes are noticeably diminished

    given how he did against fury (very uneventful fight) and he gave Joshua all he could handle and dropped him at one shot.


    , And he and his brother both stay in peak physical condition all the time, I would think a come back would certainly be theasible

    Might be too old but you never know till you try. A wee tune up vs perennial gatekeeper Chisora first.

    Very sellable fight as well given their history. I was so pumped to see this fight after Chisora spit the water in Wlad’s face, too bad it never happened.

    For sure, unfinished business. Wlad had a confrontation with him in a nightclub also.

    Seriously?! How did I not hear of this? What exactly happened?

    I don’t know why, but I’m having a hard time picturing Wlad in a nightclub lol.

    I think Chisora might beat him now.

    If Wilder can come into a championship fight with the intent of being a puncher and loading up bombs for the first four rounds and hoping for the best, why can't Vladdo?

    If he REALLY wanted to try to just blast someone out of there, I'd give him at least 30% odds against anyone.

    One of the belts would have to be held by someone other than Fury, AJ, or Usyk.
