Bowe's time line does not really match, I guess a faded Bowe could match up against a very young Wlad in 1998.
If Ike had not gone to prison, this would have been an amazing fight in the early and mid 2000's. Ike had enormous potential and the kind of pressure he brings would have troubled a young Wlad.
Lewis vs Wlad in the early 2000's is a complete mismatch. Manly because Emmanuel knew everything about Wlad even back than.
