I thought we were talking about the heavyweight scene of today? I bet I could go to any pro football team or NBA team and recruit a dude who could make his way to a title fight within a year or two (provided I was in a financial and professional position to do such a thing). I'm just saying, the physical talent IS out there but they didn't chose boxing as a career path.
As other posters have said, there are plenty of NBA players that would be superior to Wlad and Vitali both in stature and physical capabilities. Certain guys would make Wlad's jab look pathetic just based off of their natural size and reflexes and agility.
