Two convicted drugs cheats. Throw in Fury, and Ring top ten has 3 dopers...
3 convicted dopers.... bleak isn’t it? Problem in most individual and combat sports. Look at the sprinters

Just to show what a Hypocrite Eddie Hearn is, he dismisses Spong's excuse but used the exact same one for Dillian Whyte.

And Frank Warren the same. He castigated Whyte, yet conveniently forgets about Fury...

Anyone else here think a prime Vitalli handles all the current heavys easily? Same goes for Wlad as boring as they could be.

It’s hard to say. With the exception of Lewis they’d probably be his best challengers.

Vitali with ease ? really ?

Vitali was good but Ko them all with ease is a bit much , Del boy , Briggs Johnson, Hoffman, all went 12 rounds with Vitali ,Christ Chris Byrd beat him, To say he'd ko the current crop with ease is nonsense,

Don't get me wrong hes very a good fighter but he wouldn't roll over any of todays top 5 with ease even in his prime they would be good hard fights ,

It's always easy to say it in hindsight though.

Reality is that if Vlad had retired in 2014 then we'd be saying the same thing about him that he'd take the current crop easily.

Nobody wound have thought that Fury could school him in his own back yard.

Every strength sport

Many think no olympic gold weightlifter has been clean for 40 years

Big baby miller at 320lbs vs Adamek was an eye opener to me

Sure he carried some fat, but take away some and he was 250lbs+ of muscle underneath that layer of fat, that's some size/power

Meh Wlad was ancient at that stage doesn't change my opinion on him tbh, few years earlier and he would have walked through Fury. If you think he schooled him you should watch that fight.

Reads like you just read his record on Wikipedia and made your mind up, he fought all those blokes at the death of his career so has nothing to with a prime Vitalli (even though he still handled them all) and everyone knows what happened in the Byrd fight
