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.
this is a ridiculous statement. What are you basing this on?? People ***** about fighters being hyped for athletic ability before theyve fought anyone decent, and your saying a basketball player who youve never even seen fight could out jab Wladimir Klitschko who probably has the best most consistent jab in boxing?
