I wouldn't class him as a "puncher", he prefers to break the opponent down rather then try to take them out from the get go like punchers do, he has an amazing left hook and ATG right hand if that's what you mean.

He could be a great puncher, but he's afraid too late his hands go.

Yes,he is.What he did to Eddie Chambers at the time that he did it was just ridiculous.


Wlad's been overly cautious since the two losses to Sanders and Brewster and as time has gone on,his once brilliant left hook has been used less and less.If he was as aggressive and loose as he was before those two losses,then these heavyweights that he's carrying late into fights wouldn't last even four rounds with him.




I'm still awaiting the day that he brings out the full arsenal like he did against Chris Byrd in the rematch.

He could be, he just doesn't let his hands go enough. For good reason as we all know.

throwing 1 really hard punch after 11 rounds doesnt make you a atg....judge em off what they actually show not there potential...

Wlad is one of the hardest punchers of all time. He has devastating one-punch KO power in both hands.

"Wladimir is the hardest puncher I have ever trained."-- Manny Steward

"Wladimir Klitschko is the hardest puncher I have seen in the last 30 years." -- George Foreman

If by ATG you mean All-Time Glass-Jaw or All-Time Gass-Out.....

He is a good puncher but not an all time great puncher. Joe Louis was thought of as a great puncher for stopping fighters like M.Baer, Carnera, Shakey, Schmeling and Walcott. He didn't get much credit for the "bum of the month club" era.
Wlad has been in a simular era for some time now. But in all fairness it is not his fault, there's no one out there. But Wlad should blowing out alot of these guys now, rather than the careful style he fights. But how long would he last otherwise?

He is one of the greatest, him and his brother. If they fought with 8 oz gloves like they did back in Baer's day and had 15 rounds, they would be killing people. Not to mention that refs today are much quicker to call a stoppage then let it continue, unlike during Ali's day (if Foreman vs Ali happened today, Foreman would have been champ).

Like Emanuel Steward said, he can turn-off someone's lights without warning, at any point in the fight. One punch, and you are done.

He wasn't cautious after the Sanders loss. He threw it all down in the Brewster fight. After that, he definitely did though.

No way, man. I think you should watch that fight again. No offense.. There was no need to ever stop the fight and no ref would have stopped that fight before it actually was stopped.
