This is all hogwash. Wlad wasn't hurt in the 5th round and evaded every punch Wach threw afterwards. It's just silly sensationalism.

He obviously does have a glass chin though as the punch in round 5 demonstrated. I wouldn't favour him against any of the other dominate champions of the previous eras.
That being said, this last fight of his was a fun watch. He put on a great athletic display and I can't see any other fighter currently in the division being favoured against him.
... he's lucky Vitali shares his last name.
I would favor him against any of the "dominant champions" because they're all physically inferior to him in weight and height. Those guys were Cruiserweights compared to him. But that's another story.
