Depends on how you look at it. Wlad clearly wasn't at the level he is now when he fought Sam Peter the first time, or with any of his three losses. Since becoming more or less the recognized champion of the HW division, I would agree Haye was the toughest fight. Ibragimov didn't push him, it was just an overall stinker - possibly the worst i've ever seen. He was pushed by Haye, and pushed back - But the scores didn't reflect how even it was. Especially for the first 6 rounds and the last 2. rounds 7-10 were Wlad's easy. IMO the others were so close.
